Course Summary

Mechanical engineering plays an essential role at every level in society.

Our course is for you if you’re a newly qualified or practising engineer looking to improve your expertise in specialist areas. Our MSc will enhance both your theoretical knowledge and practical skills in areas such as:

  • computational fluid dynamics
  • advanced thermofluids
  • advanced manufacturing techniques
  • dynamics of solids
  • heat transfer.

We offer well-equipped research and teaching laboratories where you will develop your academic and professional excellence. develop your academic and professional excellence. Our options cover a range of application areas - you will be able to specialise in your area of interest.

You will be supervised by research-active faculty and become part of our vibrant international community. A combination of taught modules and project work provides an excellent platform to further your career in mechanical engineering. We also have strong links with industry and will help you with your professional development.


Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.


There is a demand for highly qualified engineers worldwide.

Graduates of our courses in mechanical and automotive engineering have the choice of careers in the transportation, manufacturing, energy-supply and sustainable-energy industries, telecommunications, electronics, automotive and control.


In this module, topics covered include: heat exchanger theory, design, analysis and applications; applications of convective heat transfer to changes of phase (boiling and condensation); boundary layer theory, integral equations and scale analysis; applications of heat transfer instrumentation, temperature and heat flux, and associated errors.
