About

Many things rely on mechanical engineering – from mobile phones and biomedical devices, to aircraft and power plants. If you're ready to take your engineering studies further, our MSc Mechanical Engineering degree course will give you the skills you need to advance your career.

Overview

On this course, you'll develop an advanced understanding of core mechanical engineering disciplines, including design and critical evaluation of structural integrity, computational fluid dynamics, advanced materials, energy and control systems. You'll also pick up valuable transferable skills in creative thinking, critical analysis and team working.

You'll plan and produce a personal research project, and we'll provide the expertise and support so you can develop your professional practice. Once you graduate, you'll have all the tools you need for a career as a mechanical engineer.

On this course you'll:

  • Get hands-on laboratory experience using our experimental and computational facilities dedicated to mechanical engineering, including advanced simulation and modelling software
  • Study structural integrity, control systems, advanced materials, energy systems, structural application of finite elements and computational fluid dynamics
  • Benefit from our links with industry partners in the UK and abroad, and have the opportunity to investigate real-life industrial problems
  • Tie-in your individual project with one of our research groups, and benefit from the expertise of our experienced research staff.
  • Research topics including aerospace materials, design engineering, polymers and composites, and energy engineering

Career

When you graduate, you'll be qualified to work as a mechanical engineer in fields including design, research and development, manufacturing or the Armed Forces. You could choose to work in a small business within the mechanical engineering sector, or start your own specialist company.

Career opportunities include:

  • Mechanical engineer
  • Product design engineer
  • Aerospace engineer
  • Application engineer
  • Product manufacture
  • Project management

We'll provide you with as much support as possible in finding employment through close industrial contacts, careers events, recruitment fairs and individual advice.

Accreditation

This course meets the UK Engineering Council's Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC), and is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). You'll also be on the path towards registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).
