MSc - Master of Science
Mechanical Engineering (General) Mechanical Engineering Design
From silicone chip production to the development of electric vehicles and jet aircraft, mechanical engineers connect innovation to everyday activities. Enhance your existing engineering qualifications, move into research, or gain advanced engineering techniques, with our highly-practical and challenging MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering Design postgraduate course.
Relevant for both graduates with a relevant engineering degree and experienced professionals, the course will guide you through latest methodology and practice. You will review the design, development, commission and maintenance of engineering systems. With a focus on your future career, you will also assess the social, legal and environmental issues associated with senior engineering roles.
You will learn using a combination of lectures, seminars and laboratory practicals. Seminars featuring smaller groups will enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures. In addition, you have timetabled meetings with your personal tutor./p>
During your studies, you will use industry-standard design software and have access to engineering and computer laboratory facilities.
Mechanical engineering is a gateway to influencing the structures and systems that support everyday life. Equipped with advanced engineering knowledge and skills, you will be able to pursue careers in a wide range of industry sectors, including aerospace, automotive, energy generation and manufacturing.
As a course graduate, you may choose to apply your skills working in computer aided product design and development, computer modelling and simulation, materials engineering industries and automation in manufacturing companies.Students Can also exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
