We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Mechanics offer advanced study of the behaviour of matter and material systems when subjected to different forces.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research-based MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant Engineering subject.
Courses in this field are highly interdisciplinary, with most offering opportunities for you to specialise in a particular area of Mechanics.
For example, you may wish to focus solely on designing linear equipment or rotating machinery for use in manufacturing and farming. Or, you might examine the mechanics of assistive technology, including furniture design and facilities management. You could even branch into robotics, sensor and imaging systems, or astronautics.
You will utilise methods such as digital modelling, computational techniques such as algorithms, and experimental methods such as material testing to undertake structural analysis of various kinds of equipment. This includes examining power generation, heat transfer and recovery through thermofluids.
Careers may include facilities management or maintenance of machinery across a range of public and private spaces and buildings, or design and manufacture of mechanical products.
