Program Overview

Would you like to stand out in the employment job market by advancing your current qualification to achieve a Mechanical Engineering MSc?

 

The MSc Mechanical Engineering course will provide you with advanced knowledge and skills in key aspects of mechanical engineering. Throughout the duration of this course you will develop a critical awareness of ethical and environmental considerations, in addition to learning about advanced mechanical engineering practice and theory.

 

Accredited by the Institution ofMechanical Engineers (IMechE), this course fully meets the academic requirements to become a Chartered Engineer.

 

At a time when there is an international shortage of mechanical engineers there has never been a better time to enter this dynamic and rewarding industry.

 

Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.

 

Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council as the course meets the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.

 

Mechanical Engineering overlaps with a number of engineering disciplines meaning there are many career paths available to you once you have completed this course.

 

Many graduates choose to pursue a career in the expansive engineering sector, in roles such as designers, analysts, project managers or consultants. You may also wish to progress your knowledge to PhD level and this course will provide you with a solid foundation that you can easily build on and advance to an even higher level.

The initial semesters of this course focus on taught subjects that cover topics such as computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer, multidisciplinary design and engineering optimisation, composite materials and lightweight structures, advanced stress and analysis and thermo-mechanical energy conversion systems.


Teaching is primarily delivered by lectures, seminars and workshops, all of which are assessed by methods such as assignments, exams and technical reports. All of this course’s assessments have been devised to closely mirror the outputs required in a real working environment.

 

On completion of the taught modules you will undertake a substantial piece of research related to an area of mechanical engineering that particularly interests you. Our teaching team will be on-hand to offer support and guidance throughout every stage of your course.
