We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The School of Mechanical Aerospace and Civil Engineering has a rich engineering heritage and a tradition of excellence in research, teaching and links with industry. We have over 100 members of academic staff in the School supported by dedicated professional and technical support staff. The School has over 800 taught postgraduate students and over 250 postgraduate research students.
The School performed very well in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) with our impact case submissions being ranked 3rd in the UK in grade point average (GPA) for both Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering and Civil & Construction Engineering. This is an excellent achievement that highlights the practical nature of our research, our success with industry and our ability to influence government policy.
We have a range of accredited postgraduate taught MSc courses, which are designed to support both research activities and industrial needs. The range of research topics studied by our students cover all areas of engineering, and includes theoretical and computational research, experimental studies, systems, design and management. Our work is applicable to diverse industry sectors and interests, for example: aerospace, manufacturing, civil, structural, process industries, medical, nano-engineering, energy, environment, transport and nuclear. We have an extensive range of interests within which cross-disciplinary work can flourish.
Studying with us is an investment in your future – our graduates are targeted by employers from across the globe. We offer an unrivalled opportunity to progress within your chosen discipline and become well equipped for a career in engineering and related fields.
