Mechanical Engineering

This MSc Mechanical Engineering offers highly relevant modules in sought-after engineering and scientific subjects. The programme aims to develop students' performance prediction skills required in the modern engineering environment, especially design, performance estimation and optimisation processes. It gives students the opportunity to apply state-of-the-art methods to industrially-relevant products, and to explore the process of design and development and the value of the design and evaluation cycle. This programme is designed for engineering and science graduates, providing a wide exploration of new and advanced technologies.

Entry requirements

MSc: A first or second class UK Honours Degree in engineering, physical science, mathematics or a related subject or overseas equivalent. Applicants whose first language is not English will be required to provide evidence of an English language qualification. Please provide at least one reference (preferably academic).

Assessment methods

The modules in this programme are delivered with lectures and lab-based tutorials giving a good balance between scientific methodologies and hands-on practice. There is a heavy emphasis on the use of predictive models and state-of-the-art methods to industrially-relevant products, components or systems and this is reflected in the way the programme is delivered and assessed. Modules are assessed through either course work or exams. The major project is assessed by dissertation; examples of past major projects include development of CFD code, aero and structural dynamics of vehicles and aircraft, and analysis of development of industrial machines.
