Students will learn project management, design, computer-aided engineering, operation and optimisation of machinery, structural mechanics and integrity.

Who is it for?

Advanced Mechanical Engineering at Cranfield is unique in that it offers you a broad range of mechanical engineering projects with the added component of a management flavour. This provides the opportunity for you to enhance your mechanical engineering skill with a view to developing your career in the management of large engineering projects.

In addition to management, communication, team work and research skills, you will attain at least the following learning outcomes from this degree course:

  • Demonstrate knowledge, fundamental understanding and critical awareness of advanced mechanical engineering techniques necessary for solutions in the transport and energy sectors
  • Demonstrate systematic knowledge across appropriate advanced technologies and management issues to provide solutions for international industries and/or research organisations
  • Demonstrate the ability to acquire, critically assess the relative merits, and effectively use appropriate information from a variety of sources.

Why this course?

The MSc in Advanced Mechanical Engineering is differentiated from other courses available primarily by its industrial context through the strong links we have with national and international industry. We build our industrial links through research and consultancy, which allows us to provide practical and current examples to help illustrate learning throughout the course.

This course is also available on a part-time basis for individuals who wish to study whilst remaining in full-time employment. This enables students from all over the world to complete this qualification whilst balancing work/life commitments. We are very well located for visiting part-time students from all over the world, and offer a range of library and support facilities to support your studies. This MSc programme benefits from a wide range of cultural backgrounds which significantly enhances the learning experience for both staff and students.

Informed by Industry

This degree is particularly industrially focused; although the course does not at present have an industrial advisory board, the course staff are heavily involved in industrially funded and oriented research and development.

The Head of Department, for example, sits on the IMechE Offshore Engineering committee, two BSI committees, the Engineering Integrity Society and is Chairman of the International Ship and Offshore Structures Congress Offshore, Renewable Energy Committee. Course content is reviewed annually by the course team and project/group work is by and large related to the Department's industrially funded research.

Accreditation

Course details

The taught programme for the Advanced Mechanical Engineering masters is generally delivered from October until March and is comprised of eight compulsory taught modules. Students on the part-time programme will complete all of the compulsory modules based on a flexible schedule that will be agreed with the Course Director.

Group project

The group project undertaken between October and April enables you to put the skills and knowledge developed during the course modules into practice in an applied context while gaining transferable skills in project management, teamwork and independent research. You will put in to practice analytical and numerical skills developed in the compulsory modules.

The aim of the group project is to provide you with direct experience of applying knowledge to an industrially relevant problem that requires a team-based multidisciplinary solution. You will develop a fundamental range of skills required to work in a team including team member roles and responsibilities, project management, delivering technical presentations and exploiting the variety of expertise of each individual member. Each group will be given an industrially relevant assignment to perform. Industry involvement is an integral component for the group project, to give you first-hand experience at working within real life challenging situations. 

It is clear that the modern design engineer cannot be divorced from the commercial world. In order to provide practice in this matter, a poster presentation will be required from all students. This presentation provides the opportunity to develop presentation skills and effectively handle questions about complex issues in a professional manner. All groups submit a written report and deliver a presentation to the industry partner.

Individual project

The aim of the individual research project is to provide you with direct experience in undertaking a research/development project in a relevant industrial or research area. You will make a formal presentation of your findings to a panel of academics and industry experts and submit a research thesis.

The individual research project component takes place from March to August.

For part-time students it is common that their research thesis is undertaken in collaboration with their place of work and supported by academic supervision.

INTRODUCTION

Whilst there is probably not a serious shortage of theoretically oriented practitioners in mechanical engineering, there is a shortage of highly skilled practically oriented mechanical technologists and engineers in the world today, due to the new technologies only recently becoming a key component of all modern plants, factories and offices. The critical shortage of experts in the area has been accentuated by retirement, restructuring and rapid growth in new industries and technologies. This is regardless of the recession in many countries.

Many businesses throughout the world comment on the difficulty in finding experienced mechanical engineers and technologists despite paying outstanding salaries. For example, about two years ago a need developed for mechanical technologists and engineers in building process plants. The interface from the traditional SCADA and industrial automation system to the web and to mechanical equipment has also created a new need for expertise in these areas. Specialists in these areas are few and far between.

The aim of this 18 month e-learning program is to provide you with core skills in working with mechanical engineering technology and systems and to take advantage of the growing need by industry here.
