if you are an international student requiring a Tier 4 student visa to study in the UK you will also need an ATAS certificate for this course.
This course, accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, is designed to provide you with the latest technological knowledge and industrial management skills, at an advanced level of study, in specific aspects of mechanical engineering that are in demand from industry. The course also provides you with a strategic overview of engineering and management skills necessary to take on leadership roles in major engineering projects.
The MSc will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng(Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration.
Teaching in many technical modules is backed up by appropriate hands-on experience and workshops, which can be transferred directly to your working environment.
Academic teaching is complemented by visits from industry experts. You will also have plenty of opportunities to attend relevant technical seminars, both within and outside the University.
You can tailor your course to enhance your career ambitions through your module choices, whilst the project dissertation gives you the opportunity to choose a field of study in which to establish yourself as a specialist.
What will you study?
This course will provide a broad and in-depth understanding of mechanical design engineering, modern materials application and advanced manufacturing technology. You will employ advanced computer-based mechanical engineering design analysis and problem solving, using cutting-edge technologies such as finite elements analysis (FEA), computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and mechanism design analysis and control. What's more, you will develop the entrepreneurial management and business skills necessary to take on leadership roles in major engineering projects.
The project dissertation challenges you to investigate a theoretical area in depth and solve a real-world problem.
