Course Summary

Overview

This full-time Master's programme will deepen your technical ability, broaden your understanding of other branches of engineering, and enhance your research skills.

It is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, and develops leadership and managerial strengths that can lead to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

You’ll develop an advanced understanding of:

  • Mechanics
  • Materials selection
  • Manufacturing
  • Mechatronics
  • Computer-aided engineering design
  • Developing integrated mechanical systems

You'll learn the principles underpinning the design and control of mechanical systems, along with computational and simulation methods used to ensure the reliability and robustness of mechanical systems.

You will use industry-standard computational tools and analysis packages for the analysis, design and evaluation of complex systems, and numerical methods for modelling and analysing engineering problems.

Learning and assessment

Your learning experiences are varied - a mixture of:

  • formal lectures
  • tutorials and seminars
  • group work
  • an individual project

Independent study is supported by our Virtual Learning Environment, Canvas. Reading lists and suggested resources for independent study provide you with clear direction, while regular contact hours and informal feedback throughout the programme provide all the support you may need.

Career prospects

Mechanical Engineering is a very diverse sector and graduate engineers are in high demand around the world. Our graduates find employment in a wide range of engineering and manufacturing environments, from the aerospace, transportation and automotive sectors, to construction and manufacturing, to process industries such as oil, gas and utility companies - as well as research and development. The sector offers a wide range of exciting careers in positions such as:

  • Computer Aided Design Engineer
  • Product Development Engineer
  • Modelling and Simulation Analyst
  • Project Manager

Recent graduates from this programme have gone onto work for Jaguar Land Rover, Ford Motor Company, Horiba MIRA, Cummins, Precision Casting Corporation, Denso Marston, Carnaud MetalBox, and Sulzer.
