This is a 12-month full-time course beginning at the start of the academic year and finishing with students submitting a report and completing an oral examination on their chosen research and development project. The Advanced Mechanical Engineering course offered by Durham University 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 students to choose a study course most suited to their interests and needs. The modules include lecture courses, a group design project and an individual research and development project.
Students select one of two optional modules. These modules typically include 38 hours of lectures in addition to coursework and laboratory experiments, allowing students to develop research skills in parallel with lectures. The modules are designed to increase a student’s understanding in either fluid dynamics and thermodynamics or applied mechanics. Students are advised to select the module which they feel would best support their learning needs.
The core lecture modules typically involve 38 hours of lectures and cover topics such as computational stress analysis, fluid mechanics and turbomachinery design.

- 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.
