What Will You Study
The MSc Mechanical Engineering course comprises advanced topics in mechanical engineering with modules spanning engineering science, design and technology. The modules have been developed to complement departmental research and academic strengths, along with our strong industrial links. Modules and projects are delivered by academic staff having international expertise in their discipline and are complemented by specialist lecture content from industrial experts. This course will appeal to students progressing directly from undergraduate study in engineering or related fields; to more experienced professionals wishing to update their skills; to engineering graduates/professionals holding an accredited undergraduate degree and seeking to fulfil the academic requirements for Chartered Engineering (CEng) registration with the UK Engineering Council (ECUK) .
The knowledge and practical experience that you will acquire during your MSc study will position you well placed to take advantage of the many senior engineering and technology employment opportunities available at home and abroad. At the same time, you'll be developing capabilities that are much valued by employers more generally, where your problem solving, analytical skills and team working abilities will be in demand.
The MSc Mechanical Engineering is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), on behalf of the Engineering Council, as fully meeting the academic requirement for Further Learning for Chartered Engineer (CEng) level registration.
