Course summary

Course Overview

Engineering is a multifaceted and continually evolving subject, as such this programme has been designed for engineers wishing to advance to a level appropriate for a professional engineer at the cutting-edge of the discipline, and looking to progress into technical-managerial roles.

Designed to meet the diverse demands faced by modern engineers, this MSc programme combines advanced mechanical engineering with project management. Benefiting from the teaching of some of the world’s experts in their fields, you will engage with technical modules that will increase your understanding of a range of evolving mechanical engineering topics. This will allow you to develop greater breadth and depth of technical knowledge, problem-solving and analytical skills. At the same time, you will develop project management and team-working abilities, which are highly valued by employers. The expertise you gain will be vital as you continue in your career development.

The course contains a blend of theory and practical, hands-on learning, which will both increase your understanding of the diverse range of topics and give you the confidence to apply the skills you learn in a professional environment. Engineering modules are very different in content and include case studies, workshops, group and individual exercises.

Alongside these technical modules, you will be introduced to many areas of project management, and will develop management and leadership skills while gaining experience of working in a team environment. In exploring topics such as project planning, project control, risk and resource management, you will gain the understanding required for senior engineer roles. In common with the technical modules, the emphasis is on practical application of the skills.

The programme also includes an industry-led group project and culminates in a substantial individual project, usually guided by an industrial partner. This will enable you to become familiar with applying the technical and project-management skills you have learnt in a real environment.

Assessment

Engineering is more than just theory and, as a result, you will experience labs/practical sessions, workshops and group tutorials, alongside lectures. This contact is with academic staff that are internationally recognised and work alongside global companies.

In addition, our technicians and admin support team are very approachable and have many years of experience in helping students achieve success.

Assessment varies between modules, allowing students to demonstrate their capabilities in a range of ways. Typically you can expect assignments such as coursework, presentations and formal examinations.

Career

Our MSc in Mechanical Engineering with Project Management is designed to support your career ambitions and progression. By enabling you to develop your technical and professional skills to an advanced level, and allowing you to apply what you have previously learnt to real-world problems, this programme equips you with the knowledge and experience for a range of engineering careers, and will put you ahead of the competition.

There is a wide range of sectors where mechanical engineering is relevant, and starting salaries are highly competitive. Roles include:

  • Mechanical Engineer
  • Production Engineer
  • Aerospace, Automotive, Manufacturing (etc.) Engineer
  • Technical Team Leader, Manager or Director.

Alternatively, our programme will provide you with the skills, knowledge, and experience to take up further study at PhD level and begin a career in research, exploring innovative, cutting-edge areas of the engineering discipline.
