INTRODUCTION
Aims
Mechanical Engineering plays an intrinsic role in technological advancement and manufacturing. The
skills of a mechanical engineer can be applied to the whole range of production, processing and service
industries. The mechanical engineering degree with electrical engineering programme at the
University of Glasgow is designed to equip the graduate with the broad range of skills that are
necessary in the present, and in the future, to meet the challenges of a rapidly developing workplace. It
serves as a cross disciplinary degree which provides the graduate with a sound knowledge of
mechanical and electrical engineering to enable him/her to integrate these disciplines in those industries
where there is a reliance on microprocessors, robot, control systems etc in the design and production of
a finished product.

Objectives
A. To develop knowledge and understanding of the engineering, physical and other sciences that
   underpin a range of engineering disciplines. (This breadth of knowledge will be a foundation for
   learning within mechanical engineering and prepare graduates for work in inter-disciplinary
   teams).
B. To develop an in-depth knowledge of three of the mechanical engineering disciplines.
C. To develop knowledge and understanding of a wide range of tools, techniques and equipment,
   including relevant computer software.
D. To develop understanding of:
   i) the engineering science principles relevant to the degree discipline;
   ii) mathematics as a method of communicating results, concepts and ideas;
   iii) the engineering methodology of applying engineering principles to create products, systems
         and services;
   iv) the constraints inherent in applying technology to create products, systems and services.
E. To develop an ability for both individual and group project work.
F. To be able to:
   i) create and innovate;
   ii) use mathematics to solve complex problems;
   iii) use laboratory and workshop equipment to generate valuable data;
   iv) evaluate and derive information from data to produce useful results;
   v) communicate effectively with clients, colleagues and the public;
   vi) use IT effectively;
   vii) work in a multi-disciplinary team (MEng only);
   viii) solve non-routine problems.
G. To be aware of:
   i) the methodologies of managing projects, people, resources and time;
   ii) the quality systems and quality management needed in engineering;
   iii) the requirements and responsibilities of leadership;
   iv) the obligations to work safely and to apply safe systems of work;
   v) risk analysis techniques;
   vi) the financial, economic, social and environmental factors of significance to engineering;
   vii) the relevant legal, statutory and contractual obligations (MEng only);
   viii) the broad obligations of engineers to society.

H. To have a sound knowledge of:
   i) mechatronics;
   ii) control systems;
   iii) electrical motors;
   iv) power systems;
   v) power electronics;
   vi) robotic sensors.
