Course Summary

Course overview

This MSc programme offers you an advanced level of study in specific aspects of mechanical engineering which are in demand from industry. You study develop knowledge and key skills in CAD/CAM and Product Development, Finite Element Methods and Machine Design and options available include Automotive Engineering and Vehicle Design, Manufacturing Systems, Supply Chain Management and Applied Continuum Mechanics.

There are three routes you can select from to gain a postgraduate master’s award:

  • MSc Mechanical Engineering – one year full time
  • MSc Mechanical Engineering – two years part time
  • MSc Mechanical Engineering (with Advanced Practice) – two years full time

The one-year programme is a great option if you want to gain a traditional MSc qualification. The two-year master’s degree with advanced practice enhances your qualification by adding a vocational or research-based internship to the one-year master’s programme. A vocational internship is a great way to gain work experience and give your CV a competitive edge. A research internship provides you with the opportunity to develop your analytical, team-working, research and academic skills by working alongside a research team in an academic setting. We guarantee a research internship but cannot guarantee a vocational internship. We will, however, provide you with practical support and advice on how to find and secure your own vocational internship position should you prefer this type of internship.

Professional accreditation

Our MSc Mechanical Engineering is accredited to CEng level by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).

The accredited Masters-level award will provide you with the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills in preparation for your registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.

How you are assessed

Assessment varies from module to module. It may include in-course assignments, design exercises, technical reports, presentations or formal examinations. For your MSc project you prepare a dissertation.

Your Advanced Practice module is assessed by an individual written reflective report (3,000 words) together with a study or workplace log, where appropriate, and through a poster presentation.

Career opportunities

Mechanical engineers typically work in structural engineering, research and development, automotive engineering and design, the aerospace industry, manufacturing, processing and chemical industries as well as management positions.

Modules

Advanced Practice is normally undertaken over a one semester period and has been developed to enable a student to gain real-world practical experience to enhance their employability and academic learning. Students will receive preparatory sessions to enable them to apply to internship opportunities, which normally include: Vocational internships with external organisations based offsite; Research or development internships based on campus; Employer-led internships based on campus; Students will undertake an appropriate advanced practice opportunity to meet their skill set and aspirations, related to their course. All students will be assigned an academic supervisor to provide academic and pastoral support throughout their internship. Students will be assessed through a reflective report on a pass/fail basis. This module does not count towards the overall classification of the degree.
