MEng Mechanical Engineering is a four-year programme. It aims to develop theoretical and practical competencies in mechanical system design and application, engineering analyses, innovation, project design, project management and problem solving.

Lancaster University’s engineering programmes require students to commence with fundamental engineering modules from the first year of their study. Students will not be repeating subjects such as physics, mathematics and chemistry that they undertook at school level in the first year of the engineering programme.

Student numbers are strictly controlled to provide personalized engagement with academic staff members. Typically, class sizes are only about 25 students. Students also pursue a range of foundation courses in areas such as mathematics and technical communication.

The Institute also operates a ‘Buddy Programme’ through its “Student Welfare Centre”. Under this programme an academic staff member works one-on-one and shadows a student all through his stint at the Institute.


Students who qualify (based on class performance, performance in assessments, discipline, attendance records etc.) are eligible to transfer to Lancaster University in the final year of their programme. Students who transfer will be required to pay the fees charged by Lancaster University and will be entitled to all benefits that students studying in the UK Campus are entitled to.

MEng students can exit the programme on satisfactorily completing three years of study. If students choose to do this, they will be eligible for a BEng if the academic prerequisites for a BEng degree are fulfilled.


Lancaster University’s engineering qualifications opens up opportunities for rewarding careers in private sector organizations in India and abroad. Lancaster University qualifications are also unequivocally accepted as requisite qualifications for advanced study in top-tier universities worldwide.

The Institute’s “Placement and Industry Internship Centre” supports students in various ways (though industry visits, competency building workshops, workshops on soft skills and communication etc.) to seek and compete for positions and internships in India and abroad.

Learning Outcomes
