This course is for practicing engineers or graduates who want to become technical specialists or managers in industrial and manufacturing companies.
It increases your career potential by improving your
knowledge and experience of mechanical engineering
technical and problem solving skills
ability to take on greater responsibility
You also develop your understanding of current best practice in the theory and application of leading edge technologies, processes and systems in mechanical engineering.
two management modules
five technical modules
one optional module
Option modules include • advanced manufacturing technology • competitive design for manufacture • computational flow dynamics (CFD) • sustainability, energy and environmental management.
The international product development module involves working in multidisciplinary teams to develop a new product in a global market. This develops much sought after advanced technical and business skills. The project provides a supported environment to develop your ability in an area of your interest.
This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council and will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration. It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme, who do not also have an appropriately accredited Honours degree, will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council; and will need to have their first qualification individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.
