Course Overview

Ranked 3rd in the UK for the study of Mechanical Engineering (Guardian University Guide 2020), our professionally accredited course gives you the opportunity to qualify first at bachelor and, if you choose to continue, to master’s degree level.

The course meets the educational requirements of the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC), which sets out the competence and commitment required for registration, so that upon successful completion, you can practice as a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

Our successful graduates will be confident citizens who can demonstrate a range of individual, collaborative, and professional skills and attributes. Mechanical Engineering graduates will be expected to exhibit an awareness of sustainability issues, the need to adopt responsible and ethical practices, flexibility and adeptness to succeed across a range of employment futures. They will have a strong sense of local, national and global community underpinned by an awareness and respect of intercultural values, languages and belief systems.

Mechanical Engineering graduates from Coventry University can work in many of the mechanical engineering career paths, including the Automotive, Mechatronics, Aerospace, Marine, Petroleum and Oil Production, Project Management, Sustainability and Renewable Energy, Robotics, Automatic Control Systems, Construction, Digitization, Internet of Things (IoT), Pipelines, Water Supply Systems, Power stations, Production and Production planning, Manufacturing and additive manufacturing, Mechanical Designs, Biotechnology, Composites, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Ergonomics, Material Selection and Medical Sectors.

Engineering Design

The innovative solution to design problems focused on commercially driven needs, sustainability constraints and optimisation of manufacturing costs. It covers the rational, sustainable, and efficient management, design, execution, adaptation, and evaluation of tools, machines, goods, and mechanical systems based on structural criteria while conforming to technical standards to serve the local and international market needs

Engineering Management

Engineering management uses methods and tools to guarantee that a project’s business structure, planning, operation, oversight, and completion go as expected while controlling resources such as staff,  time, progress, and the overall budget. You will master critical management and leadership skills within Mechanical Engineering that will enhance your employability, make you a desirable and attractive candidate for job progression and help you completely pivot your career


An ethical approach to engineering design and manufacture with the focus of improving and protecting the best interests of life and the environment


The investigation and manipulation of variables and principles that determine the behavior of products and systems utilizing industry standard engineering software


Investigation, analysis and practical skills development using laboratory, workshop and computer-based techniques

Course Information

This course is designed to give graduates the opportunity to equip themselves with relevant, up-to-date skills and knowledge necessary to work as a mechanical engineer in a broad variety of businesses, including engineering management, research, engineering design, development and consultancy. Moreover, prepare our graduates to make significant contributions to their professions and communities.

In our ever-changing world, mechanical engineers develop new and differing uses for technologies and materials, in order to improve the mechanical operation of equipment and devices used in anything from food and oil production to international construction projects or the design of toys.

  • You will have the opportunity to participate in field trips and internships in major engineering companies locally in Egypt and in international companies.
  • You will have access to modern facilities such as the Manufacturing & Materials Centre, the Civil Engineering & Structures lab, the Hydraulics lab, the Thermofluid lab, the Automation & Control Systems lab,  Engineering Lab Building, the Fablab, the Electrical Engineering lab, and the Electronics Engineering lab among many other labs.

Direct Entry Level 4 students for the purposes of Engineering Council Recognition ONLY must study the additional
following modules :

  • Business Simulation
  • Project Management
  • New Product Development Strategies
  • A credit/notional hour is the formal name for the estimated hours that are expected that a student would need to complete a module
  • 1 credit is equal to 10 notional hours, so 20 credits are equal to 200 notional hours, The 200 hours includes time in lectures, tutorials, preparing for your lectures, assessments as well as your own personal revision and studying that you would do
  • In reality, you might actually go above and beyond the expected notional hours, in particular if your degree requires a lot of independent learning you would most likely exceed the predicted hours
  • In the UK system each semester is 60 credits worth which is equivalent to at least 600 hours of study in one term. This is approximately equivalent to 8 hours of study a day

We regularly review our course content to make it relevant and current for the benefit of our students. For these reasons, course modules may be updated.
