The MSc in Advanced Mechanical Engineering is intended to focus on the key skills required by the modern mechanical engineer. Students will develop the qualities and transferable skills required for demanding employment in the engineering sector. The course fosters the independent learning ability required for continuing professional development and acquiring new skills at the highest level.
Particular emphasis is placed on the understanding and skills necessary for correct application of computational methods and packages in mechanical engineering analysis. Through selecting modules from a wider range of options, the course can be individually tailored to meet the particular needs and interests of each student. It is aimed at graduate engineers who wish to pursue a career in the industry using advanced engineering techniques or those wishing to gain in-depth knowledge for a career in research.
The primary goal of the course is to provide education at postgraduate level in mechanical engineering that will enable graduates to proceed to Chartered Engineer status. Students will develop the versatility and depth of knowledge to deal with new and unusual challenges across a wide range of disciplines within engineering and beyond. Students will also attend seminars on project planning/management, ethics, health & safety, report writing, library skills and career management, to help prepare them for the demands of the course and for future study or employment.
Teaching is underpinned by research activities in automotive systems, biomedical engineering, solid and fluid mechanics, electrical and thermal energy systems, energy conversion/storage and sustainable cities. Staff generate numerous publications, conference presentations, patents and spin-out companies. The University has links with a wide range of institutions both within the UK and internationally and the School benefits from research collaboration with many of these other academic and industrial organisations.
A minimum of a Second Class Honours degree in a relevant branch of engineering or science from a UK university, or an equivalent qualification from an overseas university. For overseas students, an English language certificate is also required.
Industrial experience is not a requirement for entry but in cases where the candidate does not satisfy the requirements, it may be taken into account.
Chartered Engineer status
The MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering meets the academic requirement for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status when combined with an accredited first degree.
