Why Should I Study M.E CAD / CAM?

Mechanical engineering skills are transferable, meaning they will be useful across a variety of industries and help you to become more employable. A degree in mechanical engineering will give you a range of skills including:

  • problem solving – engineering is about finding better, more efficient ways of doing things
  • teamwork – working in teams means you can share expertise and develop faster and more robust solutions
  • advanced technical skills – specialising in mechanical engineering means you will build a strong knowledge of mechanical engineering theory, and how to put it into practise practically
  • academic writing – you will be able to present your findings and ideas in a compelling way in written reports
  • decision making – mechanical engineers have to be willing to take risks and to have confidence in their decisions under pressure.

Mechanical engineering is a broad field, which has more impact on people’s daily lives than you may realise, from manufacturing the clothes they wear, to building the apps on their phones. You will study a range of interesting subjects during the course of your degree programme. This may include:

  • computer applications – computer technology continues to evolve at an incredible pace, stretching its impact into almost every part of life
  • mathematics and physics – having a good grounding in pure mathematics and physics is vital, as they are the basis of all engineering
  • electricity – study the science behind electricity and how it can further change the world
  • design and manufacture – learn how to draw designs digitally and how manufacturing processes work
  • robotics and artificial intelligence – study the mechanics of robotics and the influence that this relatively new technology is having across a number of industries.

What will I Learn??

Although engineering is a science, it can also require a high level of creativity. As a mechanical engineer, you will learn how not to rely on the way things have been done before, and to think independently so that you can create new solutions to problems. The first wheel, the compass, the aeroplane: all of these were engineering solutions which advanced human progress. A degree in engineering gives you the tools to make a difference.

Students build upon their knowledge of science and maths gained in school to learn about materials, solid and fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, control, product design and manufacturing processes. Courses on communication, business and other social-sciences along with the technical subjects are designed to groom students with well-rounded perspectives, as well as the ability and flexibility to work in a variety of settings. Practical learning is integrated into the curriculum.

Career Opportunities

Depending on your interests and career ambitions, you can choose from a range of engineering sectors, including:

  • aerospace – help to design the next generation of planes, rockets and satellites
  • automotive – work on everything from Formula 1 cars to buses, from their wheels to how they are fuelled
  • biomedical – improve lives by designing high-tech medical equipment including artificial limbs and pacemakers
  • energy – find greener, more efficient alternatives to power industry and homes
  • manufacturing – streamline machines and equipment to create the most efficient manufacturing processes possible
