Mechanical Engineering

Your studies will span advanced mechanical sciences theory, simulation and practice. You will build complex models of dynamics, static and thermo fluid systems using latest industry-standard software such as ADAMS. You will use finite element analysis to evaluate heat, stress and fluid flow problems. Failure mechanisms in real world systems and components will be investigated through fatigue analysis; you will also examine multi-body dynamic systems and turbulent fluid dynamic motion. Your chosen specialist Masters project makes up one third of the overall course.

Entry requirements

At least a 2nd-Class UK Honours degree in engineering or science is usually required. EU/international equivalents or equivalent usually professional qualifications, or unclassified degrees in engineering or science with relevant professional experience are also accepted. Other equivalent qualifications will be considered on merit.

Course modules

Modules include: Manufacturing engineering; Master�s research project; engineering structural integrity; power, renewables and sustainability; sensing and imaging; bioengineering; computational mechanics; energy distribution and management.

Assessment methods

You will be assessed combination of written reports, oral presentations, practical assignments and written examinations.
