Mechanical Engineering: MEng (Hons)

I chose to come to Newcastle University to study Mechanical Engineering as the course had a good reputation and all members of staff were really welcoming during the open days. The city also seemed friendly so I felt I would be happy here.

About the course

All the lecturers are very friendly and supportive. There is also a great deal of practical laboratory work which helps to reinforce the theory taught in lectures. I was involved in Formula Student for the third and fourth years of my degree which gives you really useful practical experience of managing a project.

Clubs and societies

I was the treasurer of the Motorsport Society in my final year, which helped me to meet new people from outside my degree and has given me experience of working with external companies.

Careers

I have secured a graduate job at Mercedes AMG HPP who design and make F1 powerbrains. I feel my experience as part of the Formula Student team at Newcastle will help me to settle into the job.
