Programme Description

The MSc in Mechanical Engineering programme offers two specialist two study options: Design and Manufacture. These options share a number of common modules that directly reflect the activities of a professional mechanical engineer. The development of these Masters options is in direct response to the specification of benchmark requirements for professional engineering competence by the UK’s Engineering Council (UK-SPEC).

Mechanical engineers have traditionally been not only specialists, but also generalists, who have the breadth of expertise necessary for operation as project managers, leaders and innovators. In addition to advancing the core knowledge base of the discipline in your selected option, the programme will provide the necessary and continuing development of appropriate inter-personal skills at this level to enable management of resources and planning objectives.

In the School of Engineering and Built Environment, the area of mechanical engineering has very strong industrial links through its industrial advisory board, undergraduate placement scheme and its highly successful part-time undergraduate programmes which all contribute to a highly successful MSc programme.

Why Choose This Programme?

The MSc in Mechanical Engineering has very strong industrial links through its industry advisory board. The school participates in many research activities within the area of mechanical engineering. This includes; advanced materials and manufacturing processes, finite element analysts, computer-aided design and manufacture and machine condition monitoring.


The taught modules are either assessed by coursework only or a combination of coursework and examination. In the later case the final mark is determined by weighted average of the two elements. The MSc project is assessed by project reports, practical operation and an electronic presentation.

Career Opportunities

There are opportunities for graduates in the areas of mechanical design engineering, project engineering, manufacturing engineering or engineering sales. Graduates have found employment in the oil and gas industry, defence, computer-aided engineering and building services.

The programme may also form a part of CPD for engineers working towards chartership.
