Advanced Mechanical Engineering

The aim of our taught courses is to develop academic and professional excellence both for newly qualified and practising engineers who wish to extend their professional expertise in specialist areas. Mechanical engineering plays an essential role at every level in society. This MSc aims to enhance both your theoretical knowledge and practical skills in areas such as computational fluid dynamics, advanced thermofluids, advanced manufacture techniques and heat transfer. Our options cover a range of application areas and allow for individual specialisation. You benefit from our mechanical engineering expertise in the Thermo-Fluid Mechanics Research Centre (TFMRC) and in the dynamics, control and vehicles research group. These groups have excellent experimental and analytical facilities and strong collaborations with industry, including GE Aviation and Jaguar Landrover. Facilities available for practical and project work include, in the TFMRC, a wide range of air supplies including a 0.8 kg/s, 7.5-bar screw compressor, two 1 kg/s, 1.5 bar blowers, and a 10 kg/s, 3-bar centrifugal compressor; a variety of jet engines including a 2400-hp engine and several microturbines; and comprehensive instrumentation and measurement systems with both high- and low-speed data loggers and high-speed pressure sequencers. The Centre develops computational fluid dynamics methods for general flow problems, with emphasis on turbomachinery and aerodynamics, and benefits from the University's high-speed computing capability. The combination of taught modules and project work provides an excellent platform to further your career in mechanical engineering.
