Course summary

What is special about this course?

Are you interested in developing your mechanical engineering knowledge and skills? If so, this new MSc Mechanical Engineering will help you progress to the next level of engineering education and help towards attainment of professional registration as a Chartered Engineer: the course is designed to fulfil the further learning component of CEng professional registration.

The course will develop your understanding of the roles of research, design, analysis and optimisation in advanced engineering careers. You will gain the knowledge and understanding to apply existing and emerging technology and gain the appropriate theoretical and practical methods to design, develop, manufacture, construct, commission, operate and maintain engineering products, processes, systems and services.

Specialist modules will allow you to pursue areas of particular interest to you and may include: study of advanced mechanical engineering topics such as fluid flow, aerodynamics, tensor stress, and parametric analysis; study of advanced mechanical engineering systems such as intermittent combustion or continuous combustion engines, and hypersonic propulsion; study of finite element modelling theory and application of mechanical engineering software analysis packages such as MATLAB or ANSYS; study of advanced applications of mathematical solutions for engineering problems such as transfer function approaches, state space methodology and stability analyses; application of optimisation approaches to the design of mechanical engineering systems; and a mechanical engineering design project.

Special features

  • The course is delivered fully online, allowing you the flexibility to fit your studies around your personal and professional commitments.
  • Provides a combination of general engineering knowledge and specialisation in mechanical engineering knowledge and understanding to prepare you to apply existing and emerging technology.
  • You will develop your ability to demonstrate effective graduate skills and a personal commitment to professional standards, recognising obligations to society, the profession and the environment.
  • Opportunity to study individual modules for personal or professional development, or work towards a PgCert, PgDip, or full masters degree.

What can I do on completion of my course?

On successful completion, you will have acquired the general and specialist engineering knowledge, understanding and skills that are relevant to employment within the engineering industry, specifically the mechanical engineering field. You will also have developed essential employability skills enhancing your opportunities for relevant careers in the industries such as:
