Course content

Our Mechanical Engineering MSc programme is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). It comprises advanced topics in mechanical engineering and features our popular industrially linked projects. You will benefit from the teaching leadership of some of the world experts in their fields, in a state-of-the-art working environment, and will receive a number of networking opportunities to enhance your career prospects.

Mechanical engineering combines scientific principles, mathematics and realisation. Scientific principles underpin all aspects of engineering, while mathematics is the language used to quantify and optimise solutions. Realisation encapsulates the whole range of creative abilities which distinguish the engineer from the scientist; that is, to conceive, make and actually bring to fruition something which has never existed before.

The course comprises advanced topics in mechanical engineering, with modules that have been developed to complement departmental research, along with our strong industrial links. Modules and projects are delivered by academic staff who have international expertise in their discipline.

The knowledge and experience that you will acquire during your MSc study will enable you to take advantage of the many senior engineering and technology employment opportunities available at home and abroad. At the same time, you will be developing capabilities that are much valued by employers more generally, where your problem solving, analytical skills and team working abilities will be in demand. During your Masters degree, you will participate in exciting projects that are both challenging and linked into real industrial need, and where possible, connected to an industrial partner. These projects have led to employment for many alumni of the course. Examples are:

  • Control design for a mobile robot used for nuclear decommissioning tasks
  • Fire resistance of FRP-Concrete columns
  • Wave powered eddy current heat generator for sea water desalination technologies
  • Investigation of advanced air cooling using synthetic jets
  • Exploration of Stability and Buckling of Various Structural Configurations of Composite Materials Under Different Environmental Loads
  • Design and Control of High Performance Cars with Active Aerodynamic Systems
  • Improved solar thermal system
