Why this course?

This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and provides a route for you to achieve Chartered Engineer status. It focuses on the areas of aerospace, energy, materials and power plant technologies.

Mechanical engineers are currently in demand in all types of industry. The MSc in Advanced Mechanical Engineering has been developed to provide high-calibre mechanical engineering graduates with an in-depth technical understanding of advanced mechanical topics, together with generic skills that will allow them to contribute effectively in developing company capabilities.

This course will help you to gain expert knowledge in advanced mechanical engineering topics. You'll also have the opportunity to take modules in general skills such as project management and risk analysis. These are necessary skills for any professional engineer.

Specialist pathways

In addition to the Advanced Mechanical Engineering programme, the following specialist pathways are offered:

You’ll study

You can take up to nine technical modules and three generic modules. MSc students also undertake an individual project.

If you're taking the Advanced Mechanical Engineering (without specialisms) you’re free to select from any of the classes below.

  • Energy Systems Compulsory modules
  • Materials Compulsory modules
  • Aerospace Optional modules
  • Energy Systems Optional modules
  • Materials Optional modules
  • Power Plant Optional modules
  • Generic modules

If you’re on a specialist programme, you must include the three compulsory modules from your area of specialism, which you'll find in the 'course content' tab.

MSc students take on an individual project which allows study of a selected topic in-depth. This may be an industry-themed project or one aligned to engineering research at Strathclyde.

Facilities

Our facilities include many laboratories and research centres including:

We have local-access to a 3500 node region supercomputer.

Accreditation

This course, on full-time study, is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and meets requirements for Chartered Engineer.

Learning & teaching

Students select from a combination of specialist and generic modules. The specialist modules focus on different technical aspects allowing tailored learning to suit individual needs. The generic modules provide other skills which are considered necessary for professional engineers.

To qualify for the MSc, students undertake an individual project which allows study of a selected topic in depth, normally industry-themed or aligned to engineering research at Strathclyde.

Assessment

The course is assessed through written assignments, exams and the individual project.

Careers

This course is designed to meet industrial demand for qualified staff in the area of Mechanical Engineering. It is particularly suitable for graduate engineers in the following sectors:

  • chemical & process engineering
  • design engineering
  • power generation
  • manufacturing
  • oil & gas
  • renewable energy
