University of Sussex
Advanced Mechanical Engineering
A 1st or 2nd Class undergraduate Honours degree in engineering, mathematics or physics; the undergraduate Honours degree should normally be in mechanical or automotive engineering, or in a closely related discipline that has covered topics such as mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid flow. Applicants with relevant work experience will also be considered on an individual basis.
Core modules: advanced manufacturing technologies; advanced thermofluids; computational fluid dynamics; heat transfer applications; and choose a further 4 modules from a range of options in mechanical and automotive engineering: advanced turbo machinery; automotive systems; cybernetics and neural networks; finite element analysis; gas turbines and turbocharging; mechanical dynamics; strategic management - engineering module; testing and modelling for automotive power systems. In addition, you undertake a substantial individual MSc project.
Modules are assessed by a range of methods, including laboratory reports, essays and unseen examinations. The MSc project is assessed typically by an interim report, a presentation and a substantial dissertation. The project is designed for you to excel in your personal and professional development and to consolidate the material covered in your modules. It exposes you to issues of project management, resourcing, planning, scheduling, documentation and communication, and demands individual responsibility, critical awareness and creative thinking. Some projects are undertaken in groups and replicate the type of professional teamwork expected in industry. Topics are generated from the academic research and industrial collaborations in the Department, and the project is supervised by a member of faculty.
