Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc

Course Introduction

Overview

Brunel?s Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc degree allows you to specialise in one of two streams, thermofluids or solid body mechanics, and will give you the thorough learning experience you need to take your career in these areas to the next level.

This advanced course will help you to develop the versatility and depth to deal with complex challenges in fluid or solid engineering faced by senior engineers. It will provide you with the advanced knowledge and understanding to apply your scientific skills to solve problems and design machines that help us enjoy a better lifestyle.

Brunel?s expert academics are conducting some of the latest research in the field and this feeds directly into the course teaching. They collaborate with major oil companies, vehicle manufacturers, and leading industrial firms and government laboratories. We also work with universities around the world.

You?ll have access to our well-equipped laboratories with dedicated areas for fluid mechanics, internal combustion engines, vibrations and structural testing, and will use our high-tech computing facilities for simulation and modelling of fluid and solid research.

Course content

In this postgraduate engineering degree, you will study the taught modules in terms one and two, each term being 12 weeks of full-time study. Four modules are the same for both streams, and the other four will cover your elective specialism in either thermofluids or solid body mechanics. You then move on to your individual project and prepare your dissertation. This will be an advanced piece of research relevant to either fluid or solid engineering.

Careers and your future

With Brunel?s Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc degree you will be ideally placed for employment in mechanical and related engineering. Typical roles include design, consultancy, maintenance, operations and project management.

Some graduates progress to research and development roles in manufacturing, aerospace, energy, automotive, micro/nano technology, nuclear and defence.
