Mechanical Engineering
Technology is evolving at a rapid pace and we at ECube Global College, with Newcastle University, and Northumbria University aim to produce graduate engineers who can keep abreast with new developments. In choosing a degree in Mechanical Engineering you are embarking upon a challenging career in which you can make a major contribution to the world in which we live.

The Engineering Council UK recommends that students apply for the four-year Master of Engineering Honours Options, as this is seen as the most direct route to becoming professionally qualified.

All students take common Stages 1 and 2, which provide a strong foundation in Mechanical Engineering and the curriculum for the Pathway Programme is modelled on the first year of the BEng (Honours) and MEng (Honours) degrees in at the University. Our four-year MEng degrees are extremely flexible, allowing you to specialise in a particular area in greater detail by choosing from one of our specialist themes.

These themes are called Honours Options and are:-
  • Mechanical Engineering BEng Honours Option
  • Mechanical Engineering MEng Honours Option
  • Mechanical and Automotive Engineering MEng Honours Option
  • Mechanical and Design Engineering MEng Honours Option
  • Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering MEng Honours Option
  • Mechanical and Materials Engineering MEng Honours Option
  • Mechanical engineering and Mechatronics MEng Honours Option
  • Mechanical Engineering and Management MEng Honours Option
  • Mechanical Engineering and Mathematics Modelling MEng Honours Option
The design of mechanical systems relies heavily on the knowledge and skill of the mechanical engineer. To deal with all aspects of the design an understanding of a wide range of subjects is necessary. The Pathway Programme course covers the fundamental material and its application, on which the discipline of mechanical engineering is based.

The topics covered in the first year of the Pathway Programme include:-
  • Mechanics
  • Materials Science
  • Thermodynamics
  • Fluid mechanics
  • Design and manufacturing
  • Engineering mathematics
  • Professional skills
