Course content

Overview

This course offers a broad range of advanced subjects across the mechanical engineering disciplines. It’s aimed at graduate engineers who wish to pursue a career in industry using advanced engineering techniques, or those who want to gain in-depth knowledge for a career in research in industry or academia.

We emphasise the application of computational methods and packages in mechanical engineering analysis design and manufacture to solve complex engineering problems, but you’ll choose from a wide variety of options that allow you to tailor your studies to suit your own interests or career ambitions. You could gain specialist knowledge in mechatronics and robotics, automotive engineering, tribology, aerospace engineering and many more.

You’ll be taught in world-class facilities by researchers who are making breakthroughs in their fields. It’s an excellent opportunity to gain a wide range of knowledge and skills that will prepare you for an exciting and challenging career.

Specialist facilities

We have an impressive range of world-class facilities to support your studies. In addition to our advanced CAD facilities for design work, we have the latest industry-standard software for computational fluid dynamics and finite element modelling of material stress analysis.

There’s also a well-equipped workshop with CNC machinery, 3D printing facilities and wire EDM for building parts and extensive lab facilities for solid and fluid dynamics, erosion, corrosion, tribology, combustion, control and dynamics, robotics and optical measurement.

Course content

In Semester 1 you’ll take a core module that introduces you to a range of fundamental methods, laying the groundwork for the rest of your studies. Beyond this, you’ll be able to choose modules in areas that suit your interests and career aspirations such as fluid dynamics analysis, biomaterials, or aspects of automotive and aerospace engineering.

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.

How to apply

Application deadlines

Applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible for taught postgraduate courses. The Faculty of Engineering will only consider applications made before the dates stated below, subject to places being available.

31 July - International applications

10 September - UK/EU applications

APPLY 

Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS)

The UK Government’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) operates a scheme called the Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS). If you are an international (non-EU/EEA or Swiss citizen) applicant and require a student visa to study in the UK then you will need an ATAS certificate to study this course at the University of Leeds.

To apply for an ATAS certificate online, you will need your programme details and the relevant Common Aggregation Hierarchy (CAH) code and descriptor. For this course, the CAH code is: CAH10-01-02 and the descriptor is Mechanical Engineering.

More information and details on how to apply for your ATAS certificate can be found at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/academic-technology-approval-scheme.

Read about visas, immigration and other information in International students. We recommend that international students apply as early as possible to ensure that they have time to apply for their visa.

Fees

  • UK/EU: £10,500 (total)
  • International: £22,750 (total)
