MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering

Course Description

This course will appeal to you if you wish to develop the versatility and depth of knowledge to deal with new and unusual challenges across a wide range of disciplines within engineering and beyond. The programme consists of five core modules including essential advanced level aspects of solid and fluid mechanics, precision engineering, modelling and simulation.

You can tailor the course to your interests through your individual project and by choosing three optional modules drawing in subjects such as biomechanics, heat transfer, renewable energy, energy storage technologies, mathematical and computational modelling, or further advanced fluid dynamics. Along the way you’ll develop skills in the understanding and modelling of a range of complex systems.

You’ll be based within a forward-thinking learning environment addressing industry focused research activities. Our activities include: automotive systems; biomedical engineering; solid and fluid mechanics; electrical and thermal energy systems, energy conversion and storage, and sustainable cities.

Recent graduates are now working in senior technical engineering, academic research, global consultancy, management positions, and roles in business, finance and accountancy.

Course structure

The MSc degree (totalling 180 credits) comprises:
-Eight taught modules (15 credits each)
-A research project (60 credits)

The five core modules of the course focus on essential advanced level aspects of solid and fluid mechanics, precision engineering, modelling and simulation. These topics develop skills in understanding and modelling a range of complex systems, developing the theories of interaction and representing these with mathematical formulae. Solution of these models is covered through analytical solution, writing computer code and using proprietary (industry standard) software. These skills are useful in all areas of mechanical engineering and are associated with the application of computers in engineering practice.

Three optional modules allow a focused study of topics directed towards the students’ own interests and provide students with a knowledge and understanding of the ‘state-of-the-art’ in one or more of the many areas of mechanical engineering in which the School has acknowledged expertise. The optional modules are run in subject areas for which Warwick has a very strong research background and are led by academics who are experts in the field.

Projects can be chosen in any available subject area. The project allows students to specialise further in their chosen field of interest, gaining substantial expertise in one particular area. Although the School offers a broad range of project topics, the individual project is usually associated with current research activity or industrial consultancy. Students therefore benefit from working at the cutting edge of their chosen field, doing work that is of direct relevance to society or industry.
