Important: if you are an international student requiring a Tier 4 student visa to study in the UK you will also need an ATAS certificate for this course.
Choose Kingston's Mechanical Engineering MSc
This course, accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, is designed to provide you with the latest technological knowledge and industrial management skills, at an advanced level of study, in specific aspects of mechanical engineering that are in demand from industry. The course also provides you with a strategic overview of engineering and management skills necessary to take on leadership roles in major engineering projects.
The MSc 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.
-Teaching in many technical modules is backed up by appropriate hands-on experience and workshops, which can be transferred directly to your working environment.
-Academic teaching is complemented by visits from industry experts. You will also have plenty of opportunities to attend relevant technical seminars, both within and outside the University.
-You can tailor your course to enhance your career ambitions through your module choices, whilst the project dissertation gives you the opportunity to choose a field of study in which to establish yourself as a specialist.
What will you study?
This course will provide a broad and in-depth understanding of mechanical design engineering, modern materials application and advanced manufacturing technology. You will employ advanced computer-based mechanical engineering design analysis and problem solving, using cutting-edge technologies such as finite elements analysis (FEA), computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and mechanism design analysis and control. What's more, you will develop the entrepreneurial management and business skills necessary to take on leadership roles in major engineering projects.
The project dissertation challenges you to investigate a theoretical area in depth and solve a real-world problem.

Work placement schemeKingston University
has set up a scheme that allows postgraduate students in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing to include a work placement element in their course starting from September 2017. The placement scheme is available for both international and home/EU students.
-The work placement, up to 12 months; is optional.
-The work placement takes place after postgraduate students have successfully completed the taught portion of their degree.
-The responsibility for finding the placement is with the student. We cannot guarantee the placement, just the opportunity to undertake it.
-As the work placement is an assessed part of the course for international students, this is covered by a student's tier 4 visa.
Details on how to apply will be confirmed shortly.
Please note that this is an indicative list of modules and is not intended as a definitive list.
-Engineering Research Techniques, Entrepreneurship and Quality Management
-Computational Fluid Dynamics for Engineering Applications
-Advanced Stress Analysis and Materials
-Engineering Individual Project
Option modules (choose one)
-Advanced CAD/CAM Systems
-Green Engineering and Energy Efficiency
-Mechatronics Design and Automation
Good honours degree or equivalent in a relevant engineering discipline accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in partial fulfilment of the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer status, and/or suitable industrial experience. We will consider applicants not requiring Matching Section under SARTOR 3 but interested in advanced study at MSc level on an individual basis. Typically these applicants must have a relevant good honours level degree and/or industrial experience.
