MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering

Course Description

Mechanical Engineering in the UK is a major contributor to the economy, and there is evidence of increasing demand for professional engineers in the field. Furthermore, as recent reports show, median salaries are also on the increase. As the President of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers puts it “…if humanity is to somehow manage to adjust its behaviour in any controlled way to a position of sustainability, we have limited time in which to do it, and we will need to do it with products and processes based on today’s technology and not tomorrow’s.”

There is an increasing demand therefore for high-quality engineers with flexible postgraduate experience and a good range of transferable skills in the broad field of mechanical engineering. This demand has been demonstrated by recent surveys indicating salaries for young Professional Engineers significantly outpacing national averages.

The primary aim of this programme is to create master’s degree graduates with qualities and transferable skills for demanding employment in the engineering sector. The graduates will have the independent learning ability required for continuing professional development and acquiring new skills at the highest level.

Specific aims are as follows:

To provide education at postgraduate level in mechanical engineering that will enable graduates to proceed to Chartered Engineer status;
To develop the versatility and depth to deal with new and unusual challenges across a range of engineering areas;
To develop imagination and creativity to enable graduates to follow a successful engineering career with national and international companies and organisations.
