MSc Mechanical Engineering

MSc Mechanical Engineering

There is strong demand for high-quality mechanical engineers with a postgraduate qualification and a good range of mechanical engineering skills. This MSc Mechanical Engineering has been designed to help you achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status and will develop the technical and non-technical skills needed to succeed in this industry.

The range of modules will enhance the depth of your knowledge, while developing the skills to manage people and projects. You will use state-of-the-art engineering analysis software, and employ appropriate analytical and computer-based techniques. Additionally, you will gain an awareness of wider issues such as environmental management and safety. Your dissertation will allow you to research a specific topic, based on real issues that organisations face. Staff are active in research and/or consultancy, which brings relevant case studies and context to the subjects you will study.
