Why we chose the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering
Take a short walk around Manchester and it’s easy to see why so many people choose to study here.
A modern, vibrant and diverse city with a fascinating heritage – and not to mention an incredible musical legacy and two of the biggest football clubs in the world – Manchester certainly has it all.
And within it: The University of Manchester. Within that: the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering.
With a near 200-year engineering history connecting us to Manchester’s emergence as the world’s first industrial city, we’re proud of our heritage.
Today, we strive to maintain and improve the standard of the Manchester engineering education experience. Our practical and exciting courses, which we develop alongside industrial and international engineering leaders, leave students fulfilled and employable on graduation.
Allied to this, our Department possesses fantastic facilities, including our brand new MECD building and has a great depth of academic knowledge – all of which makes The University of Manchester an ideal place of study for a budding engineer.
But don’t just take our word for it.
Ahead of our upcoming Undergraduate Open Day, we caught up with some of our students who shared with us why they chose Manchester as the place to study their engineering degree.
For Alejandra, it was the size of the University and the diversity of engineering modules she can take as part of her course. She also loves how approachable and helpful the staff are in supporting her teaching and learning.
Rutvik chose Manchester because of the city’s connectivity and affordability (“cheaper than London!”), and enjoys the variety and flexibility of his course… plus getting to grips with the incredible equipment we have here.
For Younas, it was the city’s – and University’s – rich history that first attracted him here, and he’s loved his experience of the design projects completed, field trips taken, and friendships made.
