Mechanical engineers apply their scientific knowledge to solve challenging problems and design machines that help us to improve people’s lives. As a Mechanical Engineer, you may work in design, development, research, consultancy, manufacture or marketing, combining technical and managerial experience. This MSc course offers you the opportunity to study advanced topics in Mechanical Engineering, covering engineering science, design and technology. From a broad base, it builds on our key research and academic strengths and concludes with an individual project.
You will develop the skills to able to solve problems using both logic and creative/innovative approaches, excellent numerate, computer and analytical skills, the ability to plan, prioritise and work to deadlines under pressure, and the ability to communicate with others.
This is a full-time masters degree course which consists of
50 credits of core, and 70 credits of optional taught modules along with a 60-credit summer individual project often linked with industrially-sponsored research.
- experimental analyses
- design oriented studies
- development of mathematical or computational models
You will study compulsory modules such as Integrated Systems Analysis, Process of Engineering Alloys, Advanced Dynamics of Machines as well as Advanced Technology Review – where you will learn about the latest, cutting-edge developments in engineering from our world-leading research groups. You will also be able to choose from a number of optional modules to allow you to focus your studies for the award of MSc in Mechanical Engineering.
An upper second class honours degree (or international equivalent) in mechanical engineering or a related discipline.
