If you have a mathematical background and want to apply your mathematical skills to understanding the complex behaviour of the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans then this could be the programme for you. This is an exciting interdisciplinary subject, of increasing importance to a society facing climate change.

You’ll be trained in both modern applied mathematics and atmosphere-ocean science, combining teaching resources from the School of Mathematics and the School of Earth and Environment. The latter are provided by members of the School’s Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science, part of the National Centre for Atmospheric Science.

Only a handful of UK universities are positioned to offer similar interdisciplinary training in modern applied mathematics and atmosphere-ocean-climate science.

If you do not meet the full academic entry requirements then you may wish to consider the Graduate Diploma in Mathematics. This course is aimed at students who would like to study for a mathematics related MSc course but do not currently meet the entry requirements. Upon completion of the Graduate Diploma, students who meet the required performance level will be eligible for entry onto a number of related MSc courses, in the following academic year.

Course content

The focus of the course is on analysing the equations of fluid dynamics and thermodynamics, via mathematical and numerical modelling. The programme is highly flexible, meaning you are free to choose options from applied maths, atmosphere-ocean science, numerical methods and scientific computation alongside the compulsory core applied maths and fluid dynamics modules.

Topics are drawn from four broad areas:

  1. Applied mathematics: asymptotic methods, fluid dynamics, mathematical theory of waves and stability of flow
  2. Numerical methods and computing: discretization of ordinary and partial differential equations, algorithms for linear algebra, direct use of numerical weather and climate models
  3. Atmospheric dynamics: structure of the atmosphere, dynamics of weather systems and atmospheric waves
  4. Ocean dynamics: the large-scale ocean circulation, surface waves and tides

Modules are taught either by the School of Mathematics or the School of Earth and Environment.

The course is made up of two parts: a set of taught modules, and a research project. Two-thirds of the course consists of taught modules involving lectures and some computer workshops. Beyond a compulsory core of atmosphere-ocean fluid dynamics, students may choose options to suit their interests from applied maths (e.g. nonlinear dynamics), atmosphere-ocean science (e.g. climate change processes, weather forecasting), numerical methods and scientific computation. The final third of the course consists of an intensive summer project, in which students conduct an in-depth investigation of a chosen subject related to the course.

Core modules will give you a solid knowledge base in key areas of automotive engineering. You’ll build your understanding of how vehicle and product systems are designed and developed, as well as automotive driveline and chassis engineering.

This foundation will allow you to gain specialist knowledge in areas that particularly interest you when you choose from our range of optional modules. You could focus on topics such as computational methods, tribology, combustion in engines or applications of mechatronics among many others.

Throughout the programme you’ll complete your Professional Project – an independent piece of research on a topic within mechanical engineering that allows you to demonstrate your knowledge and skills.

In the two taught semesters you’ll review the literature around your topic and plan the project, before completing the design, analysis, computation, experimentation and writing up in the summer months. You could even get involved with the Formula Student race car through your project.

If you choose to study part-time, you’ll extend your studies over a longer period so you can take fewer modules in each year.

Why take this course?

This course is designed to respond to a growing shortage of workforce in mechanical engineering sectors. It intends to equip our students with relevant and up-to-date knowledge and skills for their engineering competencies and careers. Students have a chance to broaden and deepen their knowledge in wide range of mechanical engineering subjects. This enables our students to undertake an advanced treatment of core mechanical engineering disciplines such as design and critical evaluation of structural integrity, computation fluid dynamics, advanced materials, energy and control systems.

What will I experience?

On this course you can:

Use simulation and modelling application software for virtual design and manufacturing
Utilise our strong links with companies and investigate real industrial problems to enhance your understanding of the profession
Tie in the topic of your individual project with one of our research groups and benefit from the expertise of our actively researching academics

What opportunities might it lead to?

This course has been accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), meeting the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). It will provide you with some of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).

Here are some routes our graduates have pursued:

Design
Research and development
Product manufacture
Project management

Module Details

You will study several key topics that will help equip you to work as a mechanical engineer in a broad spectrum of mechanical engineering business activity management, research, design and development roles. You will also complete a four-month individual project tailored to your individual interests that can take place in our own laboratories or, by agreement, in industry.

Here are the units you will study:

Structural Integrity: Contemporary approaches are applied to the evaluation of mixed mode fracture and fatigue failure. Dynamic plastic responses of structures and the performance of composite structures are evaluated.

Industrial Control Systems: This unit covers mathematical representation of control system models is developed principally using Laplace transforms. System behaviour and simulation is analysed with practical case studies, leading to control system specifications.

Advanced Materials: This unit is designed to deal with a wide range of advanced materials for engineering applications. Teaching will address analytical and numerical methods to assess the strength, stiffness, toughness, non-linearity behaviours, vibration and failures of engineering materials for component and structure design.

Energy Systems: This unit is designed to study the principles and techniques of operation of thermodynamics and combustion systems, as well as the provision and management of energy. The current and future requirements and trends in energy production and consumption are addressed.

Structural Application of Finite Elements: The use of finite element analysis techniques and software applied to structural problems is developed. Modelling with both isotropic and orthotropic materials is investigated, as well as such topics as cracking in dissimilar materials and composite laminates.

Computational Fluid Dynamics: A practical case study analysis approach is used for model formulation and CFD simulation. Fundamental principles are used to appraise the results of CFD analysis of problems with industrial applications.

Individual Project: A strong feature of the course is the individual project, which comprises a third of the course. We encourage students to undertake projects in industrial companies, but we can also use our extensive resources and staff skills to undertake projects within the University.
