The MSc Mechanical Engineering programme provides practical skills and an understanding of fundamental theory to prepare students for the rapidly changing global market.
Who is it for?
The programme is aimed at both new graduates and engineering professionals who wish to develop advanced skills in thermofluid, structural analysis, heat conversion and recovery, design and technology that are taught by leading experts in the field; all modules are updated by the latest advancements in technology.
This course is designed to meet the challenges of the rapidly changing global market; with the focus on well-designed systems and processes that are key to successful commercial enterprises.
This course provides a broad-based knowledge of the latest technological developments in mechanical engineering. This includes thermos-fluids, structural mechanics, renewable energy, gas turbine, IC engines and advanced heat transfer.
Students not only gain an in-depth understanding on fundamental theory, but also acquire practical skills and can appreciate impending developments in the Mechanical fields of technology.
The Dissertation provides a stimulating and challenging opportunity to apply knowledge and develop a deep understanding in a specialised aspect of your choice. Dissertations can be institution or industry based and company sponsored students have the opportunity to develop their career. Successful industrial projects often lead to the recruitment of students by the collaborating company.
Teaching and learning
The programme comprises lectures, assessed assignments and technical visits.
Teaching by academics and industry professionals whose work is internationally recognised. Seminar series and talks are conducted by visiting speakers.
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.
There are eight taught modules equating to 120 credits, plus a dissertation of 60 credits. The taught part of the MSc is structured into modules of 15 credits each.
The mode of delivery will follow a weekly teaching structure delivered at City, distributed through the year at the rate of four days per week. This course develops the broad skills and knowledge base required by mechanical engineers and provides a platform for career development.
Completion of modules and examinations will lead to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma. The completion of modules, examinations and dissertation will lead to the award of a Masters degree. Specialisations include computer-aided design, energy systems and management, combustions, IC engines, screw compressors and expanders, experimental techniques, mechatronics and dynamics of structures.

Why did you choose to study at City University London? I chose City University London because of the convenient location, the breadth and depth of module options and the MSc is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Also, the enthusiasm the academics have for their respective fields, industry driven dissertation topics, and the consistently good ranking in league tables for engineering made City University London the perfect choice for me.
What do you enjoy most about your course? I enjoy the challenge of working on projects that are new to me and learning how to apply computer software for solving complex engineering problems. The course offers numerous industrial site visits to compliment the teaching and the diversity of the module choices gave me a much broader understanding of sciences that I would not otherwise have learnt about. The lecturers are very helpful and approachable and the resources that are available are fantastic.
What has been a highlight of your course so far? Working with Dr Qiang Zhang on my dissertation has been the highlight of my course. The research has made me more analytical and critical and encouraged me to think logically when working through problems. The scope and potential application of the energy harvesting concept we are working on, modelled using CFD, is a very exciting novel field of research.
What do you plan to do after you graduate? I am working as a Mechanical Engineer for WSP | PARSONS BRINCKERHOFF designing energy centres and plant rooms for high rise buildings and progressing towards becoming a Chartered Mechanical Engineer. I want to use my engineering skills that I have developed at university to reduce the amount of energy we consume as the urban population steadily increases.
