Course Summary


This course offers a broad range of advanced subjects to develop your knowledge across the mechanical engineering disciplines. If you’re a graduate engineer who wishes to pursue a career in industry using advanced engineering techniques, or want to gain in-depth knowledge for a career in research or academia, this course will help you do that.

We emphasise the application of computational methods and packages in mechanical engineering analysis, design and manufacture to solve complex engineering problems. You’ll choose from a wide variety of modules that allow you to tailor your studies to suit your own interests or career ambitions.

You’ll be taught in world-class facilities by researchers who are making breakthroughs in their fields. It’s an excellent opportunity to gain a wide range of knowledge and skills that will prepare you for an exciting and challenging career.

Learning and teaching

Our groundbreaking research feeds directly into teaching, and you’ll have the opportunity to be taught by academics who are at the forefront of their disciplines.

You’ll have regular contact with teaching staff through lectures, seminars, tutorials, small group work and project meetings. Independent study is also important to the programme, as you develop your problem-solving and research skills as well as your subject knowledge.

On this course you’ll be taught by our expert academics, from lecturers through to professors. You may also be taught by industry professionals with years of experience, as well as trained postgraduate researchers, connecting you to some of the brightest minds on campus.


You’ll be assessed using a range of techniques including case studies, technical reports, presentations, in-class tests, assignments and exams. Optional modules may also use alternative assessment methods.

Career opportunities

Our graduates have secured positions at companies such as:

  • Airbus
  • Bentley Motors
  • Cummins UK
  • DePuy International
  • E-ON UK
  • Ford Motor Company
  • Jaguar Land Rover
  • Nissan Motor Company
  • Siemens


On completion of this module, students should be able to: undertake a thorough review of the literature on which they can plan a suitable project and provide context in which this new body of knowledge sits; apply an appropriate blend of theoretical, computational and experimental skills to the solution of an engineering problem of direct relevance to the programme of study; define clear objectives, plan and execute a schedule of work; assimilate and critically assess complex and contradictory knowledge from the literature; independently evaluate and analyse results leading to conclusions relevant to the project aims and objectives.

Entry requirements

A bachelor degree with a 2:1 (hons) in a related engineering discipline. Successful applicants will have strong grades in relevant modules including advanced mathematics, fluid mechanics, strength of materials and dynamics. We may ask for further detailed module information if these are not clear on your transcript. Some optional modules will also require studies covering thermodynamics but this is not essential to gain entry onto the course. All applicants will need to have GCSE English Language at grade C or above, or an appropriate English language qualification.
