The BEng (Hons) Mechanical Engineering (Power and Energy) degree at Lincoln aims to produce graduates who are highly skilled, creative engineers with an in-depth understanding of electrical technologies. Students have the opportunity to study mechanical engineering and then specialize in power generation and electronics.
Founded in collaboration with Siemens, the University of Lincoln’s School of Engineering has a core philosophy of research-led teaching. Our innovative industrial collaborations have led to a generous programme of bursaries and workplace experience opportunities. Further details can be found using the link at the top of this page. The University is also one of a select group of Siemens' Global Principal Partners.
Strong links exist between our Mechanical and Electrical programmes, ensuring all graduates have a strong cross-disciplinary focus necessary for the modern engineer, and an excellent understanding of industry perspectives.
University of Lincoln Mechanical Engineering courses are accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
How You Study
The first and second years provide a solid foundation in engineering theory and practice. Students can develop fundamental knowledge on topics including mechanics, manufacturing processes, electrical technology, engineering mathematics, thermofluids and numerical computation. The third year offers specialist modules in electrical power such as power generation and power electronics.

How You Are Assessed
In addition to traditional exams, coursework assignments are used in a number of modules where students are required to work on their own or in small groups. They are designed to enable students to develop and show their understanding of the module content. Oral presentations are often included as part of coursework to provide opportunities for developing essential communication skills.
Students are expected to complete an individual project in their final year of the degree course, providing an excellent opportunity for the student to pull together every aspect of their development during the course.
Recorded lectures are also made available for part-time and distance-based learning students. These can also be accessed by full-time students.
