By studying this programme you will engineer a better future. Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), our Mechanical Engineering degree can help you gain chartered status, as well as equipping you with a range of skills.
What's covered in the course?
Advance your knowledge and understanding, develop your critical thinking and prepare to work across a range of organisations with our MSc Mechanical Engineering course.
You will engage in independent study and systematic enquiry at an advanced level, developing new skills and becoming capable of undertaking mechanical engineering tasks using the latest technologies.You'll also work on industry-standard complex analytical tools such as Matlab/Simulink, CATIA, Ansys and ADAMS Mechanisms. You will work collaboratively with tutors, practitioners, theorists and designers, equipping you with everything you need to launch your career.
In the UK, companies such as Jaguar Land Rover, BMW and Honda require a constant supply of highly-skilled engineers with the kind of fully-rounded experience which our course will give you.
In addition to further academic research opportunities, career prospects are expected to keep pace with the rapid advances in computer aided methods and intelligent technologies, hence, there is expected to be continuing demand for competent, versatile postgraduates who can design and implement innovative solutions for industry.

Course in depth
You will acquire knowledge and understanding of the subject through formal lectures, tutor-led seminars and practical activities, as well as a range of independent learning activities. The course structure emphasises guided, self-directed and student-centred learning with a progressively increasing independence of approach, thought and process.
Lectures will introduce themes, theories and concepts, which are further explored in seminars. You will benefit from technology-enhanced learning, where appropriate, through online resources, discussion forums and other activities. You will consult advanced textbooks, together with professional material and journal articles, in order to ensure that you develop a critical understanding of work at the forefront of your discipline.
A range of assessment methods are employed with associated assessment criteria. Knowledge and skills are assessed, formatively and summatively, by a number of methods such as coursework, examinations (seen and unseen, open and closed-book), presentations, practical assignments, vivas, online forums, podcasts, and project work.
There are many challenging and rewarding career opportunities for practitioners able to operate at a senior level in the mechanical, automotive, aeronautical and offshore engineering industries. Never has the need been greater for highly skilled, innovative engineers.
