Take ideas and concepts and create working machines and technology
Mechanical and Advanced Manufacturing Engineering are intertwined at all points in the process. Everything we use on a daily basis is mechanically engineered, and at one time manufactured. Mechanical Engineers design, build, test and maintain machines, and Manufacturing Engineers take those ideas from concepts to the real-life machine or product.
We’re moving into an era of rapid innovation, complex technology and greater sustainability. Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineers are vital for our future. You’ll apply scientific and engineering knowledge to machine-building and learn about:
