Course summary

From the production of silicone chips to the development electric vehicles and jet aircraft, mechanical engineers connect us to a wide range of everyday activities. If you want to enhance your existing engineering qualifications, move into research, or use advanced engineering techniques, this highly practical and challenging postgraduate course will guide you.

Delivered through a modular programme, you'll blend theory with the latest methodology and practice. You'll review the design, development, commission and maintenance of engineering systems. You'll learn about the social, legal and environmental issues associated with senior engineering roles.

This course is relevant for graduates with a relevant engineering degree, or relevant professional experience, who want to develop their skills as mechanical engineers. Throughout the course, there is a strong management theme, so you understand the nuances of holding a senior engineering role.

The course provides you with the necessary knowledge and skills to become a Chartered Engineer. Preparations are underway to seek accreditation from the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) and the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).

You will:

  • Develop advanced engineering knowledge for a career in research in industry or academia
  • Develop rapid prototyping skills using our MakerSpace facility
  • Learn about the application of computational methods and packages in mechanical engineering analysis design and manufacture to solve complex engineering problems
  • Gain specialist knowledge in mechatronics, robotics & automation, artificial intelligence and energy utilisation

TEACHING

You will learn using a combination of lectures, seminars and laboratory practicals. Seminars featuring smaller groups will enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures. In addition, you have timetabled meetings with your personal tutor.

During your studies, you will use industry-standard design software and have access to engineering and computer laboratory facilities.

ASSESSMENT

The balance of assessment by examination and assessment by coursework depends to some extent on the optional modules you choose. Typically, the split is 70% coursework and 30% examination.

WHAT ABOUTAFTER UNI?
EMPLOYMENT

A postgraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering Design will enhance your knowledge and skill, and boost your career prospects.

On completion, you'll have the skills suitable for careers in a wide range of industry sectors including aerospace, automotive, energy generation and manufacturing. You could also choose to progress into computer aided product design and development, computer modelling and simulation, materials engineering industries and automation in manufacturing companies.
