MSc Mechanical Engineering

Course Description


This course spans advanced mechanical sciences theory, simulation and practice. Using industry standard software you will develop complex models to simulate topics such as multibody dynamic systems; thermo-fluid systems and advanced stress and structure simulations. Failure mechanisms inreal-worldsystems and components will be investigated through fatigue analysis; you will also examine multi-body dynamic systems and turbulent fluid dynamic motion. Your chosen specialist Masters project makes up one third of the overall course.

You will also learn from industry case studies. All units provide real-world engineering problems, case studies and practical techniques using state-of-the-art hardware and the latest, industry-standard software for design, experimentation and evaluation. The units typically have a good balance of practical and theoretical work. Much of the practical work is computer based.

Core units

- Engineering Structural Integrity
- MSc Engineering Project

Option units

- Automotive Engineering and Vehicle Dynamics
- Bioengineering
- Computational Mechanics
- Management Practice
- Manufacturing Systems Management
- Rail Infrastructure and Engineering Strategy
- Smart Technologies for Power Management
- Sustainable Energy Systems
- Sustainable Integrated Power Systems

Optional units listed in the following curriculum structures are all approved for delivery, but may not all run/be available in any one academic session.

You will be assessed through a combination of written reports, oral presentations, practical assignments and examinations.

Career prospects

Gaining this MSc can lead to greater professional recognition and accelerated career development. Cross-sector from rail and aerospace to the manufacturing and utilities industries, employers are keen to take on postgraduates who can learn independently and apply critical thinking and advanced problem-solving skills to real-world problems. Work could include everything from thermodynamic analysis of a high-pressure gas line to fatigue analysis of a train suspension component. The job market in engineering and technology fields is buoyant with most maintaining good economic performance. You will also be well placed to pursue further study such as a PhD or an Engineering Doctorate.
