Lancaster University's Advanced Mechanical Engineering is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), our MSc Mechanical Engineering programme comprises of advanced topics in mechanical engineering and industry linked project work. You will benefit from the teaching of some of the world’s experts in their fields, a state-of-the-art working environment, and networking opportunities to enhance your career prospects.
Over the course of the year, you will study six taught modules and undertake a major individual project. These will provide you with advanced knowledge while allowing you to develop your specialist skills, which will enable you to take advantage of the many senior engineering and technology employment opportunities available at home and abroad. You will become familiar with stress analysis, finite element analyses and modelling; renewables including wind, tidal and hydro-power; mechanisms and mechanical design; control and self-learning systems; systems analysis, advanced materials and manufacturing, application of artificial intelligence in engineering, among other topics. At the same time, you will develop capabilities that are highly valued by employers more generally, such as problem-solving, analytical skills and team-working abilities.
A major element of the programme is a dissertation project during which you will undertake independent research and receive one-to-one supervision from an academic specialist, and possibly be working with one of our industry partners. During this project, you will bring together everything that you have learnt and apply it to an advanced individual project. This will allow you to practise your skills and demonstrate your professional competences, thereby improving your employability.
Additional to the dissertation project, you will also complete an industry linked project. This exciting project will both challenge you and allow you to apply your abilities to real-world problems. You will gain experience of working in real professional environments, while gaining and developing highly employable skills, such as communications, team-working and project management.
