Mechanical Engineering

The MSc, or Master of Science, is a popular Master’s degree designation. Internationally recognized, the MSc is typically awarded after about five to six years of rigorous study in what is usually a science-based field.

A wide range of knowledge as well as an assortment of methods and skills are necessary in mechanical engineering. This subject is diverse because it is the foundation of designing and manufacturing everything from small individual parts and devices to large systems.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.
