This innovative MSc in Mechanical Engineering from University of Wolverhampton provides an advanced understanding of mechanical engineering, with the aim of producing postgraduates who can overcome the new and exciting challenges of the subject, and encourage imaginative and creative innovation.


Balancing academic theory with practical considerations, this MSc in Mechanical Engineering from University of Wolverhampton covers key areas of the mechanical sciences such as stress analysis, CFD and heat transfer, along with product design, advanced materials, research methods and computer-aided engineering. 

A principal component of the course is the dissertation project, which is usually associated with current research activity or industrial consultancy in the School of Engineering, allowing students to gain substantial expertise in one specific area.

What you'll learn

You will pay attention to the development of investigative modelling and computational strategies. This will allow you acquire advanced knowledge and a systematic understanding of contemporary finite element modelling techniques, to analyse the behaviour of complex engineering systems and components. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of advanced solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and other analytical techniques used in product development and sustainability, and to apply these techniques to synthesise novel designs for a range of engineering applications.

Potential Career Paths

The course is aimed at students who wish to undertake a career in mechanical engineering administration and management. The examples and case studies used in the course are all designed to increase the students’ knowledge of the theory and practice of mechanical engineering to enhance their employability.

This innovative course offers graduates excellent career prospects in a broad field of mechanical engineering-related industries. It will also provide excellent preparation for those wishing to undertake a PhD. This course is a broad-based programme covering an important and industrially relevant portfolio of mechanical engineering modules including Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer, Stress Analysis, Finite Element Analysis Techniques, Advanced Materials, and Computer-Aided Product Design.

This taught course offers a wide exposure to the philosophy and practice of mechanical engineering design whilst simultaneously enabling the students to deepen their knowledge of certain engineering disciplines, which have largely been chosen on the basis of our research and teaching strengths of the discipline in the School of Engineering.

Effective communication is an important employability skill for the modern professional engineer. This course includes sessions to help develop the ability, both through formal guidance sessions dedicated to good practice in report writing, and through oral/poster presentations of project work. This is designed to support the research project (worth 60 credits) which is undertaken throughout the duration of the course. Project work is assessed by dissertation and oral/poster presentations.

General requirements

  • Students should normally be educated to honours degree level, with a minimum of a 2.2, in Mechanical Engineering, Technology or a closely related discipline.
  • International Students will require approval from the Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS). Its aim is to help stop the spread of knowledge and skills that could be used in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their means of delivery. The ATAS is specifically designed to ensure that those applying for postgraduate study in certain sensitive subjects do not acquire knowledge that could potentially be used in WMD courses.
