Mechanical Engineering at Swansea University

Mechanical engineering is an innovative profession that turns ideas into inventions. 

Our Mechanical Engineering staff work closely with a range of industries, which informs the practical problems used when teaching our degree students.

We have close interaction with large companies such as Tata Steel and Ford, as well as small and medium-sized enterprises. Across the UK and overseas, there is or has been recent work with companies such as:

Astra-Zeneca - British Aerospace - Qinetiq -GKN - Rolls-Royce - SKF - Freeport - One Steel - Barrick Gold

David Winfield, EngD researcher, MEng Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical engineering

“I decided to study at the College of Engineering as it has a good reputation earned over the years through various research and collaborative projects with industry.

My favourite memories of the course are the friendliness of the tutors, exciting course content and the opportunity to compete in the Formula student – designing and building single seater racing cars.

I am currently studying for an engineering doctorate in the materials department in conjunction with TATA steel Europe. I am currently doing research work looking at the computational fluid dynamics of the blast furnace gas cleaning plant – specifically on dust separation in a gasification cyclone.

The University has a great reputation for teaching and research in engineering. The possibilities are endless as long as you apply yourself and take every opportunity the College of Engineering gives.”
