The School Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering already teaches a broad range of modules at Masters level through its MEng degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Aerospace Engineering. The aim of this MSc programme is therefore to provide a broad technical education to:
A good Honours degree in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent recognised qualification.
Applicants who are non-EEA nationals must satisfy the UK Border Agency (UKBA) immigration requirements for English language for visa purposes, normally by providing evidence of one of the following:
1 year full-time or 2-3 years part-time
Morning and afternoon.
Funding for industrial and research placements during the thesis study is sought. If available, these will be awarded on a competitive basis. All students are responsible for obtaining their own financial support. However, the School offers a limited number of scholarships to top-ranked non-EU students. Each scholarship is worth up to £3,000 and will be deducted from programme fees.
The degree programme will consist of 120 CATS points of core and optional taught courses from the list below, plus a dissertation of 60 CATS points. The main programme subjects are:
Advanced IC Engines
Aircraft Structures and Optimisation
Compressible Flow and Fluid Machines
Computational Fluid Dynamics
Design and Simulation Integration
Design for Manufacture
Engineering Innovation and the Legal Framework
Finite Element Analysis
Operations Management in the New Economy
Research Methods for Managers
Project and Dissertation
Written examinations and/or continuous assessment in each taught module. Written thesis for assessment of final MSc project.
This MSc programme offers a broad range of advanced subjects in mechanical engineering, including modules in management. It is designed to be individually tailored by the student to suit their particular needs and interests, by selecting modules from a wide range of options.
The programme is aimed at graduate engineers who wish to pursue a high-level career in industry exploiting advanced engineering techniques. It can also provide in-depth knowledge in specific subject areas to those graduates who are considering a career in research, either in industry or academia.
