Mechanical engineering involves designing and producing machines of all kinds, and it continues to have a huge impact on the world around us.

It was one of the first disciplines established here in 1894, and we have had a major influence on engineering systems on land, sea, in the air and in outer space for well over a century.

Our mechanical engineering degree offering allows you to specialise in Aeronautics (at either Foundation, Degree or Masters level), Design (Degree), Maritime (Operations, Management, Safety & Security), and Energy the Environment & Economics (Masters).

Engineering has been taught at City, University of London for over 100 years. Our undergraduate programmes (in particular our four-year integrated master's degrees) have particular emphasis on creative design.

Career perspectives

We have close and long-established links with industry locally, nationally and globally, providing opportunities for placements and potential careers.

Our degrees are accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and will teach you a high level of numeracy and computer literacy, to open up a range of career opportunities in engineering and other fields such as finance and management.
