Design and Manufacturing Engineering

The Design and Manufacturing Engineering MSc develops your knowledge and skills in mechanical engineering as well as materials and manufacturing engineering. You have the opportunity to undertake in-depth studies through your research projects. This one year course is intended for honours graduates (or an international equivalent) in mechanical or mechanical-related engineering, maths, physics or a related discipline, eg automotive, aeronautical or design. A two year MSc is also available for non-native speakers of English that includes a Preliminary Year. The taught part of the course consists of major engineering themes such as: sustainable energy management; manufacturing materials and processes; engineering design; computational methods; engineering software. Your project is chosen from an extensive range of subjects. Project work can range from fundamental studies in areas of basic engineering science to practical design, make and test investigations. Recent areas for project work include: design and manufacture; thermo-fluid dynamics; composite materials; bioengineering and biomaterials; microelectronic-mechanical systems; mathematical and computational engineering modelling. Some research may be undertaken in collaboration with industry.

Entry requirements

12 month MSc: A 2.2 Honours degree, or international equivalent, in mechanical engineering, maths, physics or a related discipline, such as automotive, aeronautical or design engineering. We will also consider applicants with a BTEC in mechanical engineering or an engineering degree of a comparable level in a less relevant discipline, such as agricultural engineering or electrical engineering. 24 month MSc A 2.1 Honours degree, or international equivalent, in mechanical engineering, maths, physics or a related discipline, such as automotive, aeronautical or design engineering.
