The MSc course offers you the opportunity to study advanced topics in mechanical engineering, covering engineering science, design and technology. From abroad base, it builds on our key research and academic strengths and concludes with an individual project in the summer term. You will develop skills including the ability to solve problems using both logic and creative/innovative approaches, excellent numerate, computer and analytical skills, the ability to plan, prioritise and work to deadlines under pressure and the proficiency to communicate with others.
The MSc Mechanical Engineering consists of 70 credits of core modules and 50 credits of optional taught modules, along with a 60-credit summer individual project often linked with industrially sponsored research. Projects include experimental analyses, design-oriented studies and the development of mathematical or computational models. The compulsory modules will teach you about the latest, cutting-edge developments in engineering from our world-leading research groups. You will also be able to choose from a number of optional modules which will allow you to focus your studies on your areas of interest.
