Society today places a huge range of demands on the engineering community. These range from the desire for ever more sophisticated consumer goods to the challenges imposed by the need for clean forms of power and transport. Faced with these demands, engineering industries in the UK are continually seeking professional engineers with high levels of expertise and skills.
If you are graduate from an engineering or closely related science discipline and you would like to extend your knowledge, skills and ability to the level required for senior positions in industry and for Chartered Engineer status, this course can help you achieve these goals.
By providing you with a greater depth of knowledge and skills in engineering science and expanding your technical skills into previously unfamiliar areas of mechanical engineering and related subjects this course can help you to broaden your skills and knowledge and develop the management know how for you to succeed as a manager within an engineering organisation.
You will also have the opportunity to undertake a substantial project that will allow you to develop your own particular interests within the broad area of mechanical engineering.
There may be opportunities to work in an advanced precision engineering laboratory with a range of ultra-precision surface measurement, coordinate measurement and machining equipment. A range of mechanical test analysis equipment is also provided. Within our automotive lab a range of engine test beds, a wind tunnel and a four-post ride simulator are also available for students that undertake their project in this area.
A postgraduate qualification is a great way to stand out from your colleagues and position yourself for a promotion or pursue a career change. In fact, here at Huddersfield, 90% of our postgraduate students go on to work in professional or managerial roles.*
