This highly flexible course is designed to strengthen your knowledge and understanding of mechanical engineering. It offers a wide selection of optional modules, allowing you to tailor your studies to reflect your interests, and graduates go on to work in many areas of engineering. You'll also have the chance to further explore a subject that interests you through your individual research project.
To give you a fair chance of succeeding on your course, we need to make sure you have enough experience in relevant subjects. All of our MSc courses are designed for students who have completed a degree similar to our BEng Mechanical Engineering.
Many of our MSc students come from different subject backgrounds, including aerospace, automotive, civil and marine engineering courses, as well as mechatronics, manufacturing, mathematics and physics.
We would like to see evidence of experience in the key subject areas listed below:
We would normally expect to see these subjects on your transcript. If you have studied these topics as part of modules with very different titles, you will need to indicate this on your application form.
This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and meets, in part, the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer status. Our MSc graduates who also have an accredited BEng (Hons) will be able to show they have met all the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
