This course provides broad-based knowledge of the latest technological developments in mechanical engineering:
* Internal combustion engines
* Renewable energy and alternative fuel
* Computational fluid dynamics
* Gas turbine engineering
* Vehicle engineering
* Computer aided design.
You will be trained in structured design process using the latest version of industry standard CAD tools; CATIA, Ansys, Cambridge Engineering Selector (CES), Fluent and solid work.
Our cutting edge academics deliver modules in mechanics, structures, dynamics of structures, materials, fluids, thermodynamics and mechatronics. These modules are designed to improve your knowledge in science and technology, but they also help to develop transferable skills such as communication, team work, leadership, multi-tasking, planning and management. These important skills will help you to become successful in your future career and initiating new innovative technologies.
The course requires that each student completes a research project which will:
* Focus your research interests
* Develop your report writing
* Enhance your presentation, critical thinking and analytical skills.
There are a wide range of project areas to choose from which include materials, energy conversation, compressors, expanders, energy efficient vehicle technologies and appropriate technologies. These projects are often the result of a collaboration between our students and either local, national or global companies.
The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics has international reputation for the excellence of its research which is funded by many national and international bodies, including the Royal Society, the Leverhulme Trust, Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), Technology Strategy Board (TSB), Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTP), European Research Council (ERC) and European Commission (EC).

Teaching and Assessment
The course is taught by staff from the School of Mathematics, Computer Science & Engineering and some external industrial experts. Teaching methods include lectures, tutorials and seminars. Throughout the programme, teaching and learning strategies are designed to encourage independent self study and teamwork, creativity and critical thinking.
Assessment is based on marks obtained throughout the year for courseworks, class tests, and end-of-year examinations. Modules, based on coursework only, are assessed through substantial individually designed courseworks, assignments and small projects. IT skill is assessed through submitted work on CATIA design reports and computational courseworks.
City's Mechanical Engineering MSc has been accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and provides a path for graduates to gain Chartered Engineer status. Blending theory and practice, this course develops the broad skills and knowledge base required by mechanical engineers, providing a platform for career development. You will be equipped with the skills and confidence needed to fulfil leading engineering roles with critical thinking and creativity.
Our academic staff are at the cutting edge of their field and many have research collaborations with different organisations including:
These connections often lead to employment opportunities but many students also find employment in other companies.
Where are they now? Employment destinations of graduates include:
Transport for London
These companies actively participate in developing and monitoring our course content and student research projects. The course has been designed and developed in collaboration with industry and the professional bodies so that in addition to strong academic qualifications, students will gain the important skills and knowledge for a successful career.
Applicants should hold a lower second class honours degree in mechanical or automotive engineering or a related scientific or engineering discipline, or the equivalent from an international institution. Consideration is given to candidates who can demonstrate work experience in an appropriate field.
