Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering

Brunel University’s Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering (MACE) is one of the leading engineering departments in the UK, and with over 1250 students, as well as 150 academic staff, it is also one of the largest.

Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering is the triple threat of engineering disciplines, combining Brunel University’s most established subject, Mechanical Engineering, with both Aerospace and Civil Engineering.

Discover the design and development behind every imaginable machine through Mechanical Engineering – from supersonic fighter jets and super cars, to bicycles and toasters.

Expand your knowledge even further by studying Aerospace Engineering, and consider aircraft design, aerodynamics, space mechanics, spacecraft design, propulsion systems and the role of flight simulation in aerospace at an advanced level.

Finally, learn from our very own Civil Engineering graduates as they pass on their knowledge and know-how to produce the next generation of essential facilities such as sustainable building construction, roads, bridges, tunnels, flood protection, waste recycling and construction management.

Most undergraduate and postgraduate programmes enjoy accreditation with a wide range of professional bodies including:

  • The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers
  • The Energy Institute, The Institution of Mechanical Engineers
  • The Royal Aeronautical Society

and the following main Civil Engineering bodies :

  • The Institution of Civil Engineers
  • The Institution of Structural Engineers
  • The Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation
  • The Institute of Highway Engineers

Brunel University’s MACE degrees engage students in thought-provoking and challenging learning, while encouraging students to run with their own concepts and ideas by promoting a hands-on learning experience. Our facilities and labs are prepared with state-of-the-art equipment, (including a flight simulator) allowing our students to practice techniques, share analysis and research, and put their ideas into action.

Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering students will discover, experiment and design in order to emerge with the skills and knowledge necessary for industry, as well as the passion to begin a successful career in the field of their choice.
