This major provides a broad focus on all aspects of mechanical engineering, with topics including solid mechanics, mechanics of machines, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, mechanical design, control systems, manufacturing and mechanics of materials.
In many industrial sectors, mechanical engineers with a great understanding of electrical engineering principles are ideally preferred. This major uniquely provides a secondary course of study in electrical engineering on top of the core mechanical engineering topics. As well as the mechanical engineering topics, you would also cover electrical engineering principles, electrical machines, electrical energy and power systems.
Advanced Manufacturing and Digital Design
This major emphasises the use of mechanical engineering and digital design in a modern, industry 4.0 manufacturing environment. On top of the mechanical topics in the degree you would also cover Industry 4.0, cyber-physical systems, robotics and automation and how to design specifically to facilitate manufacturing.
