On a typical mechanical engineering course you will learn how to design, manufacture and maintain mechanical systems. Some mechanical engineering courses expect you to be proficient in computer aided design (CAD), though many others teach this as part of the syllabus. You will certainly need to be confident using computers though. Mechanical engineering courses tend to mix classroom-based theory lessons with practical workshops.
Have done online courses before and this one leads the others and that includes an OU course that I completed a few years ago. This has been easy to follow in my opinion and very interesting if you are into engineering.
