Masters degrees in Electromechanical Engineering offer advanced study of electrically-operated mechanical devices.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Mechanical Engineering.
Courses in this field are often highly interdisciplinary, combining methods and techniques from disciplines such as Graphic Design, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Physics.
Training includes the processes involved with Electromechanical production, from graphic design and materials selection, to prototyping, simulation and manufacture. You will cover processes such as control systems design, computational fluid dynamics, kinetics and energy conversion, with the aim of improving their energy efficiency and sustainability.
Theory and practices will cover a broad range of systems, from electrical controls in smart technologies, to automation, power plants and large combustion engines. You may specialise your studies depending on your interests, focussing perhaps on computerised systems and data communication, or production techniques and business strategies.
Careers are highly varied and may include manufacturing management, consultancy for transport and utilities companies, or policy and regulation within public services.
