The Department of Mechanical, Materials and Manufacturing Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham has an excellent reputation for teaching and delivers well-established mechanical engineering degree courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. These are recognised to be amongst the leading courses in the country with good ratings in newspaper league tables and the National Student Survey.

Engineering design is a strong theme within these courses and the Department has excellent workshop and laboratory facilities to give students hands-on practical experience of design and build projects. The mechanical engineering courses have always benefited from teaching delivered by engineers with extensive industrial experience, from, for instance Rolls-Royce and other companies. The Department also currently benefits from a Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Professor in Engineering Design and there have been succession of similar posts held in the Department during the past 20 years.
