This course is suitable if you are seeking a postgraduate qualification to enhance your knowledge base and skills, and want to maximise your employment opportunities. Mechanical Engineering is broad and challenging, and offers content and skill sets that are required by industry worldwide. The course includes a number of advanced modules in core subject areas. These are supported by modules in business and electromechanics, providing you with an insight into the engineering business environment and broadening your understanding of other engineering disciplines. You will gain an understanding of the methodology used in research and an awareness of the numerical techniques underpinning the tools employed in mechanical and thermal analysis.

Entry requirements

You should have the equivalent of a British Honours degree (2.2 minimum) in a relevant subject. If you have no formal academic qualifications, but do have extensive industry experience, we will consider your application on an individual basis. International students must also have a valid Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate to enrol on this course. English language requirements: IELTS 6.0 with no component below 5.5 or equivalent.

Course modules

Modules studied: electromechanics; business environment and energy studies; numerical methods techniques in engineering; advanced thermodynamics and heat transfer; advanced solid mechanics; engineering systems dynamics and control; advanced materials and design; research methods; individual research project.

Assessment methods

The modules are delivered through a mixture of lectures, tutorials and laboratories. This ensures a good balance between theory and practice, so that real engineering problems are better understood through an underpinning of strong theoretical and analytical knowledge translated into practical skills.
