Mechanical Engineering covers a very broad field: the main (traditional) areas are mechanics, materials, and design, and fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, but topics in control and instrumentation, electrical materials, civils, energy and bioengineering are also relevant. Combinations of courses can be found to suit many different career paths. It would be prudent for students to consult their Directors of Studies or the Engineering Area Coordinator before choosing a very eclectic mix of courses, in case a lack of overlap makes the workload unusually high.
Specialist advice can be obtained from module leaders, or from the Mechanical Engineering Coordinator whose details can be found on the IIA Mechanical Engineering Area webpage.
