This programme aims to provide you with a sound understanding of Advanced Mechanical Engineering principles and the ability to undertake teamwork and communicate ideas.
The core modules studied on the programme will develop your understanding and knowledge of the principles of Advanced Mechanical Engineering to an advanced level. They include specialist knowledge in thermo and fluid dynamics, combustion in IC engines, alternative and conventional energy generation methods and nuclear engineering. You will be taught techniques for managing projects and research, giving you highly desirable skills for working in industry.
This programme aligns with the current accredited Undergraduate integrated Masters MEng 4th year in Mechanical Engineering with co-taught M level modules from the existing programme organised in two 12-week semesters with examinations at the end of each semester worth 120 credits from a total of 180. This is then combined with an MSc advanced research project over the summer term worth the remaining 60 credits.
Project work which contributes 60 credits, will be based on a topic of industrial or scientific relevance, and will be carried out in laboratories in the University or at an approved placement in industry. The project is examined by dissertation, and award of the MSc (Eng) degree will require evidence of in-depth understanding, mastery of research techniques, ability to analyse assembled data, and assessment of outcomes.
Why School of Engineering?
In the Research Excellence Framework 2014, our research was ranked 5th in UK for 4* and 3* research (world leading and internationally excellent research)
Our teaching programmes are also highly rated and this is underpinned by an extensive programme of research.
The School of Engineering has a welldeserved and highly respected reputation for its excellent experimental and computational facilities. Our £32 million redevelopment includes the state-of-theart ‘Active Learning Labs’, a cutting-edge teaching facility, one of the largest and best equipped in Europe. We have two research-standard full motion flight simulators (one of which is unique in the academic world), mechanical robotics, wind turbines, water flumes, additive layer manufacturing and many more facilities.
We equip our students for rewarding careers and our graduates have found jobs in a wide range of industries and organisations, both in the UK and abroad.
Programmes include a strong practical element and incorporate the latest academic and industry research, enabling you to work effectively at the forefront of engineering.
When you graduate you can count on the University's Careers and Employability Service to help you plan your future.
We've consistently achieved the highest grades in research assessments and many of our research programmes are supported by industrial companies such:-
- Agusta Westland - Airbus - BAE Systems - QinetiQ - Unilever - Jaguar - Ford - National and international bodies such as EPSRC and the European Commission.
