Why study a Mechanical Engineering degree?

Machines run the world. Throughout history, machines both simple and complex have helped us solve our problems and advance our abilities. In today’s world, mechanical engineers are the people who design the latest mechanisms to keep us moving forward.

A mechanical engineering career involves almost everything from running machinery to architecture. Basically anything with a moving part is a mechanism that requires engineering so that it works safely and efficiently, usually in concert with other mechanisms, all working together. It’s complex and requires the training and knowledge to understand the physics of processes, the durability of materials and much more besides.
