Aims/Description: The Level 3 year abroad is spent studying an agreed set of Mechanical Engineering modules at Universities with leading Engineering Departments either in the US or Canada. These modules are selected to mirror Sheffield modules at the same level and to build upon the knowledge and skills gained in the first two years of the MEng degree. Level 3 Autumn/Spring mandatory modules together with either MEC313 Finite Element Techniques or MEC320 Computational Fluid Dynamics, are matched with equivalent modules at the Host University. The other modules are optional as in Sheffield and make up the remainder of the 120 Sheffield equivalent credits

Restrictions on availability: Restricted to students registered for the programme Mechanical Engineering with a Year in North America (MECU004)

Staff Contact: GITMAN INNA
Teaching Methods: Placements
Assessment: Course work

Notes: Part of the Accreditation by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers. In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
