Mechanical engineering sciences

Ranked 4th in the Complete University Guide 2019, the University of Surrey is one of the UK’s leading universities for mechanical engineering. But there are so many other reasons why people choose to study or research here.

The mechanical engineering facilities at Surrey are some of the best in the UK. Aerospace engineering students have access to some of the most advanced flow facilities in Europe, such as the Environmental Flow (ENFLO) Research Centre. Automotive engineering students have the opportunity to use state-of-the-art design and development tools, as well as get involved in Formula Student – Europe’s most established student motorsport competition. Mechanical engineering students work in our newly-created Design Centre, receiving training on the latest industry-standard design and solid modelling software. Biomedical engineering students learn in our new £12.5m Innovation for Health Learning Laboratory.

Our students are always encouraged and given opportunities to excel. Our students’ achievements include winning a Royal Academy Scholarship, reaching the final of the Airbus Fly Your Ideas challenge, winning an Institution of Mechanical Engineers award, and being named the Most Promising Female Engineer.

Whether you’re undergrad or postgrad, there are a variety of exciting societies to get involved in at Surrey to support your studies, such as the Biomedical Engineering Society or MechSoc.

Our professionally-focused courses and renowned Professional Training Placement programme help prepare our students to work in a range of fascinating fields. Such as Shaun Rance who completed his placement at McLaren Automotive Ltd, Joshua Hemmings who worked at Gordon Murray Design, and Melita Zvirbule who worked at Renishaw Plc.
