What's the Master of Mechanical Engineering all about? 

The Master of Science in Engineering: Mechanical Engineering is a general training programme integrating all disciplines of basic sciences, engineering and technology. An essential element of the mechanical engineering curriculum at KU Leuven is the direct training of each student in a real-life industrial or research setting. Following up on the design assignment in the Bachelor's programme, the Master's programme brings the student in close contact with the industrial reality.

Structure 

Three versions

The Master's programme in Mechanical Engineering has three versions:

  • A Dutch-language version for students who have already obtained a Master's degree of Engineering Technology: Electromechanical Engineering
  • A Dutch-language version for students who have completed their Bachelor's training at our Faculty or at another university with Mechanical Engineering either as a major or as minor.
  • An English-language version which mainly addresses foreign students, and to which admission is granted after evaluation of the application file.

Five modules 

The programme consists of five modules.

  • The first major component is the core module in mechanical engineering.
  • The second major component is one out of five options, which have been put together in a complementary way.

Three generic options 

  • Manufacturing and Management: modern techniques for the design and production of discrete components, CAD and computer integration in production, management techniques, maintenance and logistics of a production company.
  • Mechatronics and Robotics: mechatronics is the discipline in which the synergy of construction, sensing, actuation and control of machinery are concurrently defined and tuned for optimum integration
  • Thermo-technical Sciences: physical principles and analysis, design, construction and operation of combustion engines and thermal and flow machines, cooling machines, power plants, etc.

Two application oriented options

  • Aerospace technology: physical principles, analysis, design, construction, exploitation and operation of aircraft and space systems;
  • Vehicle technology: physical principles, design, analysis and production of cars and ground vehicles and of systems for ground transportation.

Elective courses 

The third and fourth components in the programme structure concern a set of elective courses, to be chosen from a list of technical coursesand from a list of general interest courses.

Master's thesis

The final component is the Master's thesis, which represents 20% of the credits of the entire curriculum.

Strengths

  • The department has a large experimental research laboratory with advanced equipment, to which Master's students have access. FabLab (a "Fabrication Laboratory") is also directly accessible for students.
  • The department has built up an extensive network of companies which recruit a large number of our alumni since many years already, from whom we receive lots of informal feedback on the programme.
  • In addition to their academic teaching and research assignments, several members of the teaching staff also have other responsibilities in advisory boards, in external companies, science & technology committees, etc. and they share that expertise with students.
  • The programme attracts a large number of students.
  • The programme offers students the choice between application oriented options and generic methodology oriented options.
  • Many courses are dealing with contents in which the R&D of the Department has created spin-off companies, and hence can offer very relevant and innovation driven contents.
  • The programme has a clearly structured, extensive and transparent evaluation procedure for Master's theses, involving several complementary assessment views on every single thesis.
  • Several courses are closely linked to top-level research of the lecturers, and they can hence offer up-to-date and advanced contents to the students.

International experience

The Erasmus+ programme gives students the opportunity to complete one or two semesters of their degree at a participating European university. Student exchange agreements are also in place with Japanese and American universities.

Students are also encouraged to learn more about industrial and research internships abroad by contacting our Internship Coordinator. Internships are scheduled in between two course phases of the Master’s programme (in the summer period after the second semester and before the third semester).

These studying abroad opportunities and internships are complemented by the short summer courses offered via the Board of European Students of Technology (BEST) network. This student organisation allows students to follow short courses in the summer period between the second and the third semester. The Faculty of Engineering Science is also member of the international networks CESAER, CLUSTER and T.I.M.E.

The ever increasing computer capacity for treatment of data, storage of measurements and data, and computing models, offers solutions to important challenges in business and society. Often mathematical techniques are crucial. A few examples:

  • How does an auto-pilot work?
  • How do you trace credit card fraud?
  • How do you find out which genes play an important role in cancer?
  • How do you simulate the evolution of greenhouses gases in the atmosphere?
  • How do you determine the value of financial products such as options?
  • How do you compress the images of fingerprints?
  • How do you compute airplane noise?
  • How do you optimise the process in a chemical reactor?
  • How do you analyse customer data and model consumer profiles?
  • How do you find abnormalities in brain images caused by epileptic seizures?

At first sight, these applications have little in common. However, for each of those, large amounts of data and various models are available. Mathematical techniques are crucial for the efficient treatment of these data and for fast and accurate simulation and optimisation.

Structure 

The programme consists of a technical core education on advanced topics on mathematics, process control, system identification, numerical optimisation, numerical simulation of differential equations, scientific software, and a project where students solve a problem that requires a combination of knowledge and skills taught at the core education.

The students freely choose among the many elective courses. They are stimulated to select courses from different tracks in order to obtain a broad overview of techniques and applications of mathematics in engineering science.

The elective courses include technical courses on mathematical techniques, as well as courses that are taught in other Master’s programmes that focus on modelling and the use of these mathematical techniques.

International

The Erasmus+ programme gives you the opportunity to gain valuable international experience by completing (usually) one semester at a participating European university. Student exchange agreements are also in place with a number of Japanese and American universitiesThis arrangement does not lengthen the duration of your degree programme, nor does it result in a separate degree.

It is also possible to complete an internship at a company abroad. Ask the internship coordinator for more information.

These studying abroad opportunities and internships are complemented by the short courses offered via the Board of European Students of Technology (BEST) network. The Faculty of Engineering Science is also member of the international networks CESAER, CLUSTER and T.I.M.E.

You can find more information on this topic on the website of the Faculty.

Strengths

The programme is generally perceived positively by alumni.

There are many elective courses, which gives freedom to develop an individual study programme tuned to the student’s interest. This fact is often mentioned by students and alumni as one of the strong points of the programme.

Since September 2014, the EC (Educational Committee) can rely on the expertise of the Industrial Advisory Board.

The programme is organised by the departments of computer science and electrical engineering. The students can use the computer infrastructure of both departments. The students become familiar with different fields of research which broadens their view.

This is an initial Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis.

Career perspectives

Many small, dynamic, young companies are active in the field of mathematical engineering. But even big players in materials, chemistry, automotive, aerospace, biomedical industries, as well as finance, are increasingly interested in mathematical engineering thanks to the ever increasing complexity of mathematical models and more stringent environmental standards and comfort expectations. Many of our young graduates start their careers in the R&D departments of high-tech companies or matriculate into one of the university’s PhD programmes.

This taught MA programme offers a unique opportunity to study the multi-faceted nature of contemporary European theatre. It is associated with the European Theatre Research Network (ETRN), the renowned Kent-based research centre dedicated to the study of non-English continental European theatre.

There is also an option to study a term of this programme in Paris.

The notion of ‘dramaturgy’, this unique concept and practice characteristic of European theatre work, serves as our central lens from which we explore creative practices and processes in contemporary European theatre, theatre systems, performance aesthetics, and their histories. You become familiar with current conceptual and theoretical paradigms of European theatre, from mise en scène to the postdramatic theatre and the links of European theatre with European philosophy from Plato to Alain Badiou. You also receive a thorough grounding in research methodologies.

You have the opportunity to work alongside the ETRN’s leading researchers, such as Patrice Pavis, Hans-Thies Lehmann, Paul Allain, Peter M. Boenisch, and others, and to hear about their current, ongoing research. We make full use of Canterbury’s geographical location between London and the Continent, offering theatre visits and excursions, and also making use of the University’s campuses in Paris and Brussels.

About the Department of Drama and Theatre

Postgraduate Drama and Theatre studies at Kent has a very strong reputation for research and supervision in contemporary theatre and performance. We are the home of two renowned international research centres, the European Theatre Research Network (ETRN) and the Centre for Cognition, Kinesthetics and Performance (CKP).

The wide-ranging interests of our international team of leading and emerging researchers (from the UK, Australia, Italy, Greece, Germany, France and other countries) include research strengths in contemporary performance, applied theatre, Shakespeare, 18th-century theatre, multimedia performance, popular performance, directing and dramaturgy, and physical performer training.

Our distinctive focus at Kent is on theatre as practice, whatever the topic, area, mode and methodology of research, and we encourage postgraduate students to make use of our close links and contacts with local, national and international (especially European) theatre companies, venues, schools and artists, both for research and to encourage professional postgraduate development.

Course structure

The programme consists of four modules and a dissertation project.

You are stimulated to develop further your own individual interest and expertise. It is ideal for students intending to develop a larger postgraduate research project towards future PhD studies in this area. Further optional modules allow specialisation in areas such as creative producing, production dramaturgy, and theatre criticism, but also in interdisciplinary fields such as continental theory and philosophy, political activism, and law and humanities.

You can also learn or improve your skills in a foreign European language as part of the course. There is also an option to spend a semester at our partner programme at Ghent University.

Modules

The following modules are indicative of those offered on this programme. This list is based on the current curriculum and may change year to year in response to new curriculum developments and innovation.

Assessment

Assessment is through a variety of written work and verbal presentations. This includes academic essays, in-class research presentations, contributions to workshops, portfolios of critical writing, and performance analysis. It also includes an assessed project proposal towards a prospective PhD project which could be your starting point for applying for doctorate scholarship.

The final dissertation requires you to research an individual project in depth, and to present its findings in writing and in a conference-style presentation.

This programme is also available at split site between Canterbury and Paris.
