About

The Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc course offered by Durham University will provide graduates with advanced knowledge and understanding of Mechanical Engineering in three ways.  Firstly, high-quality taught modules will introduce advanced Mechanical Engineering topics such as turbomachinery design, computational stress analysis, plates and shells, contact and friction.  

Overview

Durham University has many researchers tackling problems relevant to industry and society. These are organised into three research challenges: sustainable infrastructure, future energy systems and next generation materials and microsystems. These are broad interdisciplinary challenges and will form the topics of many of the substantial projects that student will undertake.  Durham students are uniquely placed to take advantage of a broad range of expertise in a general engineering department. 

Course Structure

The Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc course offered by Durham University consists of five core modules to provide an advanced engineering education in Advanced Mechanical technologies alongside an optional module that allows students to increase their understanding in an area suited to their interests and needs. In addition to these taught modules you will also complete a group design project and a major, individual research and development project working closely with an academic in your chosen subject area.

This is a 12-month full-time course beginning at the start of the academic year and finishing with you submitting a report and completing an oral examination on your chosen research and development project. The course consists of four core modules to provide a solid education in a broad range of Advanced Mechanical Engineering technologies. A choice of one from two optional modules allows you to choose a study course most suited to your interests and needs. The modules include lecture courses, a group design project and an individual research and development project.

You will select one of two optional modules. These modules typically include 38 hours of lectures in addition to coursework and laboratory experiments, allowing you to develop research skills in parallel with lectures. The modules are designed to increase your understanding of either fluid dynamics and thermodynamics or applied mechanics.  You are advised to select the module which you feel would best support your learning needs.

General requirements

  • Subject requirements, level and grade

To be admitted to the MSc course in Advanced Mechanical Engineering, you need the equivalent of a UK Honours degree to at least an upper second class standard (2:1). This should normally be in an appropriate Engineering or Engineering-related subject including modules in Applied Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics and Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists.  Although in some instances we can consider industrial or other relevant experience if you have a different first degree.

If you are an international student who does not meet the requirements for direct entry to this degree, you may be eligible to take a pre-Masters pathway programme at the Durham University International Study Centre.
