Course Introduction

This course is designed to help you meet the challenges of the rapidly changing global market, with a focus on advanced thermal power, systems and processes. As a result, your studies will prepare you for a successful career in a wide range of engineering enterprises. The programme has been developed from our research strength in fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, mathematical modelling in CAD, renewable and sustainable energy, gas turbine engineering, IC engines and powertrain, and advanced heat transfer.

The Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc will help you: gain advanced knowledge of the latest technological developments in advanced mechanical engineering, particularly in thermo-fluids applications; acquire an in-depth understanding of the fundamentals, practical skills and an appreciation of the latest developments in engineering solutions in the energy and transport sectors; demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of the general areas of Mechanical Engineering subjects and to extended knowledge of underlying principles of modern methods of control and design of vehicle and power train systems; assess the behaviour of mechanical, aeronautical or electrical systems; apply advanced methods of analysis to mechanical, aeronautical or electrical systems; gain extended knowledge of the underlying principles of modern methods of design of mechanical, aeronautical or electrical systems with appropriate methods; appreciate advanced computer methods, e.g. CFD and CAD, using different software techniques.

Assessment is based on marks obtained throughout the year for courseworks, class tests, and end-of-year examinations followed by dissertation. Modules, based on coursework only, are assessed through substantial individually designed courseworks, assignments and small projects. IT skill is assessed through submitted work on design reports and computational courseworks. This Masters is geared towards preparing you for a successful career in mechanical engineering, providing you with highly sought-after, in-depth knowledge of fundamental theory and hands-on experience in the field of mechanical technology. The course also features industry-based projects that can provide you with employment opportunities.
