The University of Nottingham has a very good reputation for Mechanical Engineering, and is ranked highly in many of the league tables for teaching, research and student satisfaction. The Guardian ranked us 4th for Mechanical Engineering in its 2018 University Guide.

Although membership to Nottingham's MechSoc is not compulsory, the society still has over 400 members making it one of the largest societies in the Student's Union.

MechSoc has a good relationship with the Department of M3, and seeks to develop long-term relationships with graduate recruiting employers.

Romax Summer internship recruitment is closed - however at the moment we are recruiting for our Global Graduate Scheme which lasts for a year, prior to the graduate settling in one particular area of the business, either in the UK or overseas. During the 12 months the graduates move around the business (3 months in each area), are taken through a training scheme to upskill them in Engineering and soft skills so that by the end of the 12 months they are well placed to decide which area of the business they wish to pursue their career in. We also arrange for the graduates to visit our overseas offices so they get the full flavour of the business. We offer a salary for the Global Graduate Scheme of £25K plus a one off £2K Golden Handshake upon completion of their 3 month probation in addition to a performance related bonus which pays up to 10% of their salary annually. In addition there are many other benefits like, only working until 12.30 on a Friday, free fruit, tea and coffee, lunches provided for the workforce once per month which can be: Italian, Spanish, Chinese, British etc as the different teams organise the various restaurants to come in and provide the food.

Future Sponsors

MechSoc is always open to new sponsorship deals. Sponsors can expect funds to be put into either social, sporting or careers events for our members. MechSoc is non-profit so everything gets used for the good of our members.
We are always keen to have our sponsors logo on clothing that we have printed and invite sponsor representatives to our trips out and events. Primarily though, MechSoc has proved its abilities to be able to greatly improve turnout to industry talks and careers events.
