NOTE Are you a student from outside the EU? If you are an international student we have designed a version of this award especially for you! It is called the Extended International Master in Mechanical Engineering. It includes an extra semester of preliminary study to prepare you for postgraduate learning in the UK. We strongly recommend that all international students take this option as it is proven to improve your chances of success. Take a look at this alternative course here.
Engineering is a major wealth creator for the UK and many other economies worldwide. Highly qualified engineers command a high salary and are much sought after. This course will provide you with significant skills in the major engineering functions allowing you to work in a senior technical or project management role within industry.
The course consists of 8 taught modules plus a major personal project leading to a written thesis. The taught modules cover the broad range of activities involved in designing and validating new products and machinery. You will study topics such as solid and surface modelling, rapid prototyping, Finite Element Analysis, advanced materials and thermodynamics. The subject area of your final thesis can be selected to suit your own aspirations and interests. You will be assigned a supervisor with whom you will work closely to develop an academically challenging portfolio of work.
Project Option Modules are: -Industrial Robotics & Control -Control System -Sustainable Design & Manufacture -Industrial Placement
This course can be completed within 1 year. However this timescale is dependent on students starting the course in September, passing all modules, undertaking their project during the summer semester and experiencing no other delays (such as health issues). Many students choose to delay their project start and enjoy a well-deserved summer break to ‘re-charge their batteries’ which also has academic benefits. In this case a more realistic duration is 15 months.
Accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council (partial CEng). 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.
Upon graduation you will be ideally placed to work in a manufacturing or engineering company at a senior level working towards Chartered (CEng) status. If you prefer the course also gives a good grounding in research techniques which could allow you to continue your personal research interests to PhD level.
