With leading research into Advanced Mechanical Engineering, the University of Birmingham is the ideal location for bright graduates, looking for a solid and well-respected postgraduate qualification which will act as a springboard for a successful future. 

  • 120 credits of taught modules studied during October-April
  • 60 credits of project-based module carried out during June-September
  • Assessment methods include a range of examinations, assignments and projects

The MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering is fully accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) for both of its full-time and part-time modes of study.

Course details

The programme will include 9 subject-specific technical modules of 10 credits each covering vehicle engineering, mechanics, thermal systems, energy, computational geometry, manufacturing processes, robotics, biomechanics, and micro electro-mechanical systems. A 20-credit synoptic mechanical engineering module has been integrated into the programme and provides research-focused teaching of selected novel case studies from various research areas being carried out within the School in order to enhance the relevant knowledge base of the students. 

A further 10 credit module covering research skills, project management and business enterprise will provide the necessary training to enhance the competencies in professional skills that modern mechanical engineers are expected to possess. The latter part of the programme will include a 60 credit summer project module. The project can either be based at the University, or be carried out in industry.

The Master's course in Nanoscience to Nanotechnology utilises facilities that include a state-of-the-art nanotechnology laboratory suite (500m2) housing cutting-edge fabrication and characterisation facilities.

Key Features of MSc in Nanoscience to Nanotechnology

The growth of nanotechnology is one of the most exciting developments in science and engineering in recent years. Much of the research in this field is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing expertise from different areas across the life science, physical science and engineering disciplines.

The MSc Nanoscience to Nanotechnology course covers the techniques necessary for scientific investigation at these very small dimensions, and the very latest research developments in this rapidly evolving area.

As a student on the MSc Nanoscience to Nanotechnology course, you be able to comprehend the fundamental principles of physics and engineering, which have consequences for nanotechnology, and to gain an understanding of how the general concepts of scientific research are transferred to engineering applications and products.

This MSc Nanoscience to Nanotechnology course will also enable you to apply appropriate techniques for designing, imaging and evaluating nanostructures, whilst gaining a knowledge of mathematic models and their application within a research project through interpreting quantitative and qualitative data.

As a student on the MSc Nanoscience to Nanotechnology course, you will cover a broad range of subject areas, from the latest semiconductor fabrication technology through to biological and medical applications, with the emphasis throughout on characterisation and control of materials on the nanoscale.

Nanoscience to Nanotechnology Course Structure

The MSc inNanoscience to Nanotechnology is modular in structure. Students must obtain a total of 180 credits to qualify for the degree. This is made up of 120 credits in the taught element (Part One) and a project (Part Two) that is worth 60 credits and culminates in a written dissertation. Students must successfully complete Part One before being allowed to progress to Part Two.

Part-time Delivery mode

The part-time scheme is a version of the full-time equivalent MSc in Nanoscience to Nanotechnology scheme, and as such it means lectures are spread right across each week and you may have lectures across every day. Due to this timetabling format, the College advises that the scheme is likely to suit individuals who are looking to combine this with other commitments (typically family/caring) and who are looking for a less than full-time study option.

Those candidates seeking to combine the part-time option with full-time work are unlikely to find the timetable suitable, unless their job is extremely flexible and local to the Bay Campus.

Timetables for the Nanoscience to Nanotechnology programme are typically available one week prior to each semester.

Links with Industry

Work within the Multidisciplinary Nanotechnology Centre places a strong emphasis on the development of applications-driven research and the transfer of technology from the laboratory to the work place or health centre. Interaction with industry is therefore a key component of the Centre’s strategy and we have collaborated with major multinational companies such as Agilent, Boots and Sharp, as well as a number of smaller Welsh-based companies.

Careers

As a student on the MSc Nanoscience to Nanotechnology course, you will be provided with the qualities needed for employment in technology or higher research degrees requiring the exercise of initiatives, specialist knowledge, personal responsibility and decision making in complex and unpredictable contexts.

This MSc Nanoscience to Nanotechnology course is suitable for those who want to develop an understanding of the techniques available to fabricate and investigate nanoscale structures, and develop arguments and make judgements based on fundamental concepts of nanoscale engineering.

Facilities

The new home of the Nanoscience to Nanotechnology course is at the innovative Bay Campus provides some of the best university facilities in the UK, in an outstanding location.

Research

The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 ranks Engineering at Swansea as 10th in the UK for the combined score in research quality across the Engineering disciplines.

The REF assesses the quality of research in the UK Higher Education sector, assuring us of the standards we strive for.

World-Leading Research

The REF shows that 94% of research produced by our academic staff is of World-Leading (4*) or Internationally Excellent (3*) quality. This has increased from 73% in the 2008 RAE.

Research pioneered at the College of Engineering harnesses the expertise of academic staff within the department. This ground-breaking multidisciplinary research informs our world-class teaching with several of our staff leaders in their fields.

Student Quote

"I found that the MSc in Nanotechnology covered a broad range of topics. This really opened my mind to the potential possibilities of the field and to consider future careers in areas that I had not previously thought of. This course has allowed me to find the right area of research to continue to a PhD."

Chris Barnett, MSc Nanoscience to Nanotechnology
