We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Thermodynamics offer advanced training in the relationships between different forms of energy and forces, particularly regarding industrial machinery and their outputs.
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 subject with a high mathematical element, such as Engineering or Physics.
Thermodynamics explores the effects of forces such as pressure and heat in various contexts, particularly in the use of different types of machinery and vehicles. Understanding these effects, and how to alleviate or encourage them, helps us to ensure the safety and efficiency of many objects which we rely on.
Training will encourage you to engage in the design, development and testing of internal combustion engines, turbines and power producing devices. A key part of understanding Thermodynamics is analysis of thermofluids, which include liquids and gasses.
As such, you will explore experimental methods, investigating heat transfer through techniques in advanced fluid mechanics, power engineering and computational fluid dynamics.
Careers may include roles in the manufacturing of automotives, aviation maintenance, or maritime engineering.
