Course leaders and tutors
Sara is responsible for delivering a number of engineering management-related modules to our undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students.
One third of your study will be an individual project and dissertation. You specialise in a technical area of your interest and choosing, and carry out your own in-depth investigation into a particular problem. Where possible, this will be an industry-related problem.
Mechanical Engineers work in a wide range of engineering sectors. These include
- building services
- medical engineering
- sport equipment design
- power generation
- alternative energy
- product testing
- project management
