The Course

The University of Lincoln’s Master’s in Mechanical Engineering has
been developed around the key strands of energy conversion, system design using computer-aided engineering, system control, and sustainability.

The study is based on inquiry and action learning, where students are introduced to a topic and then have the opportunity to develop their understanding through problem-based scenarios. Modules are taught in week-long blocks, allowing the participation of part-time students in full-time employment.

You can be part of a thriving hub of research and development within the School of Engineering, where you will have the chance to work alongside academics on projects in collaboration with industry.

How You Study

The MSc is taught using a block delivery structure, which makes it suitable for attendance by part-time students as well as those wanting to study individual module blocks for the purposes of continued professional development (CPD).

You will be taught through a mixture of lectures, laboratory, and practical sessions, and seminar work in the new purpose-built Engineering School.

Contact and Independent Study

Weekly contact hours on this programme may vary depending on the individual module options chosen and the stage of study.

The postgraduate level study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the material covered in lectures and seminars. As a general guide, for every hour in class students are expected to spend at least two-three hours in an independent study.

How You Are Assessed

Assessment comprises completely of coursework conducted throughout the programme, and you will be expected to complete a major research project after the taught modules.

Assessment Feedback

The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to you promptly – usually within 15 working days after the submission date.

Entry Requirements

Honours degree in a relevant subject or equivalent professional experience.
