University of Glasgow

The University of Glasgow is the oldest School of Engineering in the UK. It has been delivering world-class engineering education and research for more than 150 years. The creation of a unified School of Engineering in 2010 provides an exciting environment to study and undertake world-leading research.

The University of Glasgow’s undergraduate degree programmes include the core engineering disciplines: Aeronautics, Civil, Electronics & Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. The University also has specialist degree programmes in Biomedical Engineering, Product Design Engineering, Electronics with Music, and Civil Engineering with Architecture.

University of Glasgow – Mechanical Design Engineering:

Year 1 covers mechanical design and manufacturing, mathematics, dynamics, electronics, materials, statics and thermodynamics, as well as engineering skills. Year 2 covers applicable mathematics, applied mechanics, fluid mechanics, microeconomics, engineering computing, materials, power electronics, thermodynamics, and design and manufacture. The final Year 3 covers more advanced engineering subjects such as engineering design, dynamics and control, mechanics of solids, heat transfer, design and manufacture, materials and manufacture, mathematical modelling and simulation, and mechanics of materials and structures.

University of Glasgow – Mechanical Engineering:

Year 1 covers mechanical design and manufacturing, mathematics, dynamics, electronics, materials, statics, and thermodynamics, as well as engineering skills. Year 2 covers applicable mathematics, applied mechanics, fluid mechanics, microeconomics, engineering computing, materials, power electronics, thermodynamics, and design and manufacture. In Year 3, you will visit a number of industries in the UK and study more advanced engineering subjects. These include dynamics and control, fluid power, engineering design, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics of engines, heat transfer, instrumentation and data systems, materials and manufacture, mathematical modelling and simulation, and mechanics of materials and structures.

University of Glasgow – Mechatronics:

Year 1 covers mechanical engineering, mathematics, dynamics, digital and analogue electronics, materials, statics, and thermodynamics, as well as engineering skills. Year 2 covers mathematics and fundamental engineering courses linking the mechanical and electrical domains which form the basis of mechatronics. In Year 3, you will develop knowledge and skills in electronic system design, real-time programming and control systems. This is combined with study of mechanical instrumentation and data systems to develop the interdisciplinary skills necessary to undertake a mechatronic group design project. The mechanical courses include mechanics of materials and structures and dynamics and control.

University of Glasgow – Product Design Engineering:

The curriculum in Year 1 includes courses in product design engineering which are delivered by the Glasgow School of Art. The first year also covers mathematics, dynamics, electronics, materials, statics, thermodynamics and engineering skills. Year 3 develops and integrates the application of theory through structured projects. You will also study more advanced engineering subjects including: materials and manufacture, dynamics, control and fluid power, heat transfer, mathematical modelling and simulation, and mechanics of materials and structures.
