MSc Mechanical Engineering

Course Description


Your studies will span advanced mechanical sciences theory, simulation and practice. You will build complex models of dynamics, static and thermo fluid systems using latest industry-standard software such as ADAMS. You will use finite element analysis to evaluate heat, stress and fluid flow problems. Failure mechanisms in real world systems and components will be investigated through fatigue analysis; you will also examine multi-body dynamic systems and turbulent fluid dynamic motion. Your chosen specialist Masters project makes up one third of the overall course.

Core units

- Manufacturing Engineering
- Masters Research Project

Option units

- Engineering Structural Integrity
- Power, Renewables and Sustainability
- Sensing and Imaging
- Bioengineering
- Computational Mechanics
- Energy Distribution and Management

You will be assessed through a combination of written reports, oral presentations, practical assignments and examinations.

Career prospects

Gaining this MSc can lead to greater professional recognition and accelerated career development. Cross-sector from rail and aerospace to the manufacturing and utilities industries, employers are keen to take on postgraduates who can learn independently and apply critical thinking and advanced problem-solving skills to real-world problems. Work could include everything from thermodynamic analysis of a high-pressure gas line to fatigue analysis of a train suspension component. The job market in engineering and technology fields is buoyant with most maintaining good economic performance. You will also be well placed to pursue further study such as a PhD or an Engineering Doctorate. components.
