This course spans advanced mechanical sciences theory, simulation and practice. Using industry standard software, you will develop complex models to simulate topics such as multibody dynamic systems; thermo-fluid systems and advanced stress and structure simulations. Failure mechanisms in real-world systems and components will be investigated through fatigue analysis; you will also examine multi-body dynamic systems and turbulent fluid dynamic motion. Your chosen specialist Masters project makes up one-third of the overall course.
You will also learn from industry case studies. All units provide real-world engineering problems, case studies and practical techniques using state-of-the-art hardware and the latest, industry-standard software for design, experimentation and evaluation. The units typically have a good balance of practical and theoretical work. Much of the practical work is computer based.
Features and benefits of the course
- Engineering facilities are excellent with a dedicated £4m heavy engineering workshop for research and teaching in surface engineering, materials and dynamics, with a state-of-the-art kit including rapid prototyping machines and water jet cutters.
- Research in the School of Engineering was rated 'internationally excellent' in the Research Excellence Framework 2014.
- You will learn from industrial case studies and use the latest, industry-standard software.
Our engineering Masters programmes are designed to meet the needs of an industry that looks to employ postgraduates who can learn independently and apply critical thinking to real-world problems. Many of the staff who teach in the School also have experience of working in the industry and have well-established links and contacts in their industry sector, ensuring your education and training is relevant to future employment.
This course starts in September 2017 and January 2018. Please note that January starters will have a course duration of approximately 15 months.
