About Mechanisms & Machines
Masters degrees in Mechanisms & Machines equip postgraduates with the skills to assemble and structure moving parts within machinery, to modify force and functions.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant Engineering subject.
Mechanisms & Machines can be found in all aspects of daily life; from the accessories we wear to the objects which we use. Courses in this field are therefore highly interdisciplinary in nature, combining methods from practices in Ssolid Mmechanics, Ddynamics, Mmechatronics and Bbiomechanics in some cases.
Training includes a range of techniques, from graphic design, 3D modelling and simulation, to materials testing and experimental modal analysis (EMA) - testing the durability of mechanisms during use. You may also explore machine communication and control, and the development of algorithms to test their efficiency.
Careers may include the design and manufacture of commercial products such as smart technology and wearable devices, to facilities management in a range of public spaces and buildings, or the maintenance of industrial machinery.
