About

Rotating machinery is employed today in a wide variety of industrial applications including oil, power, and process industries. With the continuing expansion of the applications of rotating machinery, qualified personnel are required by the increasingly large numbers of users.

Rotating Machinery, Engineering and Management is a specialist option of the MSc in Thermal Power providing a comprehensive background in the design and operation of different types of rotating equipment for power, oil, gas, marine and other surface applications.

Who is it for?

Designed for those seeking a career in the design, development, operation and maintenance of power systems. Graduates are provided with the skills that allow them to deliver immediate benefits in a very demanding and rewarding workplace and therefore are in great demand. This course is suitable for graduates seeking a challenging and rewarding career in an international growth industry.

Why this course?

The MSc option in Rotating Machinery, Engineering and Management is structured to enable you to pursue your own specific interests and career aspirations. You may choose from a wide range of optional modules and select an appropriate research project. An intensive two-week industrial management course is offered which assists in achieving exemptions from some engineering council requirements. You will receive a thorough grounding in the operation of different types of rotating machinery for aeronautical, marine and industrial applications.
