The distance learning courses allow you to complete a MSc in Advanced Mechanical Engineering (Distance Learning) at The University of Strathclyde online, without studying at our Glasgow campus. This means you can study for a postgraduate degree while balancing your existing work and family commitments. This option is suitable for students located anywhere in the world.
Modules are taught using online material (e.g. by video, podcasts, webinars and presentation), meaning you can study at a time that suits you.
You’ll have full access to all class materials and will be able to chat with your class tutors and fellow students via email, online forums and live webchats. We also have dedicated staff who can answer any questions you have, supporting you through your studies.
MSc students take on an individual project which allows study of a selected topic in-depth. This may be an industry-themed project or one aligned to engineering research at Strathclyde.
What you’ll study
Students select from a combination of specialist and generic modules. The specialist modules focus on different technical aspects allowing tailored learning to suit individual needs. The generic modules provide other skills which are considered necessary for professional engineers.
A list of optional classes available as distance learning can be found in the 'course content' tab.
To qualify for the MSc, students undertake an individual project which allows study of a selected topic in depth, normally industry-themed or aligned to engineering research at Strathclyde.
We work closely with the University's Careers Service. They offer advice and guidance on career planning and looking for and applying for jobs. In addition, they administer and publicise graduate and work experience opportunities.
