Course summary

The MSc Mechanical Engineering is aimed at both new graduates and industry professionals who wish to broaden and deepen their knowledge in wide range of mechanical engineering subjects, including computational mechanics, thermodynamics, materials technology, computer aided design and engineering simulation. The course is designed as a direct response of growing industry demand and shortage of skilled workforce in mechanical engineering profession.

In addition to technical specialisation, the MSc course will prepare students for professional careers in mechanical engineering requiring high levels of judgement, team-working, leadership, initiative, delegation and decision-making responsibilities.

Professional Accreditation

Accreditation will be sought from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Institute of Engineering Technology (IET).

Learning Environment and Assessment

The course adopts a range of approaches to the delivery of curriculum including case studies, lectures, practical sessions, independent learning guided by a tutor and tutorial sessions.

Assessment of learning is conducted by a range of methods including tutorial questions, examination, use of online assessment via Blackboard questions, extended assignments, presentations, poster defence and written reports.

The course benefits from world-class facilities in computational mechanics, tribology, surface engineering and additive manufacturing with a wide range of equipment (laboratory and industrial scale) and computer modelling facilities relevant in mechanical engineering.

Opportunities

To enhance your work experience, you will have an opportunity to undertake a professional placement as part your MSc. This will extend your study time by six to twelve months depending on the length of the placement. Alternatively, there are opportunities to choose an industry-based project.
