Mechanical engineering plays an essential role at every level in society.
Our course is for you if you’re a newly qualified or practising engineer looking to improve your expertise in specialist areas.
Our MSc will enhance both your theoretical knowledge and practical skills in areas such as: -Computational fluid dynamics -Advanced thermofluids -Advanced manufacture techniques -Heat transfer
You’ll develop your academic and professional excellence. Our options cover a range of application areas – you’ll be able to specialise in your area of interest.
A combination of taught modules and project work provides an excellent platform to further your career in mechanical engineering.
How will I study?
There are core modules and options, and a supervised project. Modules are taught in the autumn and spring terms, with examination periods in January and May. Your project is undertaken over the spring term and the summer. It leads to submission of your dissertation and project presentation.
Modules are assessed via: -Laboratory reports -Essays -Unseen examinations
The project is assessed by: -An interim report -A presentation -A substantial dissertation
On our Masters courses, you’ll complete a substantial MSc project, which is often practical as well as theoretical. The project is designed for you to excel in your personal and professional development and to consolidate the material covered in your modules.
It demands individual responsibility and exposes you to issues of: -Project management -Resourcing -Planning -Scheduling -Documentation and communication -Critical awareness and creative thinking
In Engineering and Design, project assessment can include interim reports, presentations and a dissertation. Some projects are undertaken in groups and replicate the type of professional teamwork expected in industry. Topics are generated from the academic research and industrial collaborations in our Department, and a member of faculty supervises the project.
Our aim is to ensure that every student who wants to study with us is able to despite financial barriers, so that we continue to attract talented and unique individuals.
