Course summary

Course summary

Career prospects for graduates are excellent. The programme puts practical engineering modelling, research and project management skills in to the hands of graduates.

Course outline

This MSc Mechanical Engineering offers highly relevant modules in sought-after engineering and scientific subjects. The programme aims to develop students' performance prediction skills required in the modern engineering environment, especially design, performance estimation and optimisation processes. It gives students the opportunity to apply state-of-the-art methods to industrially-relevant products, and to explore the process of design and development and the value of the design and evaluation cycle.

This programme is designed for engineering and science graduates, providing a wide exploration of new and advanced technologies.

Learning, teaching & assessment

The modules in this programme are delivered with lectures and lab-based tutorials giving a good balance between scientific methodologies and hands-on practice. There is a heavy emphasis on the use of predictive models and state-of-the-art methods to industrially-relevant products, components or systems and this is reflected in the way the programme is delivered and assessed.Modules are assessed through either course work or exams. The major project is assessed by dissertation; examples of past major projects include development of CFD code, aero and structural dynamics of vehicles and aircraft, and analysis of development of industrial machines.

Professional accreditation

The MSc Mechanical Engineering is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) for the purpose of meeting the educational requirements of Chartered Engineer (CEng).

Career prospects

Career prospects for graduates are excellent. The programme puts practical engineering modelling, research and project management skills in to the hands of graduates. This helps career progression in industries where computer-based technology is required including manufacturing, R&D, science, IT, design and academia.Recent graduates have been employed in a range of jobs including:

  • Product development with a manufacturer of domestic heating products.
  • Computer aided design with a manufacturer of military/surveillance equipment.
