Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc(Eng)
Particular emphasis is placed on the application of computational methods and packages in mechanical engineering analysis, design and manufacture. The course 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. It is aimed at graduate engineers who wish to pursue a career in industry using advanced engineering techniques. The course also aims to provide in depth knowledge in specific subject areas to those graduates who are considering a career in research either in industry or academia. On completion of the course a graduate should be able to:
-Demonstrate an advanced level of knowledge and understanding in his/her chosen subject areas.
-Apply this knowledge in analysing and solving complex engineering problems requiring a combination of theoretical, experimental and computational techniques.
-Demonstrate skills of communication, time and resource management and project planning in order to successfully complete his/her chosen project
12 months full-time; 48 months part-time
What you study
The programme offers a broad range of advanced subjects across the mechanical engineering disciplines. Particular emphasis is placed on the application of computational methods and packages in mechanical engineering analysis, design and manufacture. Through selecting modules from a wider range of options, the course can be individually tailored to each student to ensure that it meets their particular needs and interests.
Sample modules include: robotics; vehicle design and performance; automotive chassis engineering; combustion and pollution chemistry; aerodynamics; biomedical engineering simulation; microfluidics; combustion in engines; computational and experimental methods and propulsion..
As well as studying taught modules, students also undertake a professional project which is chosen by the student and undertaken in association with one of the School's world class research groups. A member of staff is assigned as supervisor.
How you study
The School uses a wide range of teaching methods as appropriate to the topic. Modules may be 100% lecture based and assessed by examination, or 100% self-study based and assessed through report and presentation
