Course Summary

Mechanical Engineering is the application of physical science to practical problem solving. As a Mechanical Engineer you could be working on anything from a simple component such as a switch, to more complex machines such an internal combustion engine or an entire system such as an automobile or a factory production line. The MSc degree in Mechanical Engineering is a 1 calendar year conversion programme that is part of a suite of programmes offered in Mechanical Engineering at Queen Mary University of London. This programme is aimed at students who already have a science background (e.g. biology, mathematics, chemistry, physics), and who wish to convert to a career in Mechanical Engineering. The methods of assessment are coursework and formal examinations, which take place in May. Many courses will include continuous assessment so that some or all of the work you do during the course counts towards the final mark. As a student in the School of Engineering and Materials Science (SEMS) you will be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, laboratory practical’s, and a variety of coursework.
