About the course

This course has been designed to enhance your career as an engineering designer and aims to advance to positions in design management in a short period of time.

The course offers a balanced suite of modules that will explore technical deepening, technical broadening and management. In addition, you will undertake a substantial project that will allow you to develop your own particular interests within the broad area of mechanical engineering design.

You will have the opportunity to study in one of the most advanced precision engineering laboratories in the UK, with a range of ultraprecision surface measurement, coordinate measurement and machining equipment. You may have the opportunity in the Mechanical Science laboratory to access a range of mechanical test and analysis equipment, to enable fatigue, modal and thermal analysis.

Course detail

  • Additional information

Technical broadening within a module covering Finite Element Analysis and Dynamic Analysis is used to ensure that you are equipped to effectively study the more advanced analytical elements of the course. Further technical broadening is provided within modules covering Computer Aided Design and Air Management.

Building on this, Advanced Mechanical Analysis takes you much deeper into these subject areas. You should become equipped to undertake non-linear solid and complex dynamic and analysis using computer aided modelling techniques. Non-technical broadening is included in the course with the study of Project Management and New Product Development. This provides you with a good basis to undertake your project and a framework for your future career development.

Professional links and accreditations

This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).

The Master’s qualification is regarded as the professional benchmark for engineers and it gives those who show potential the opportunity to study Master’s level modules, meeting all the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

Career support

Previous graduates from this course have gone on to roles such as Consultant Design Engineer and Mechanical Design Engineer in organisations such as Beacon India, Rolls Royce and Baldwin and Francis Ltd.*

Further study
