The Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc focuses on key skills required for a career in mechanical engineering. Warwick's School of Engineering, ranked 5th in the UK, will provide you with versatility and depth of knowledge, enabling you to proceed to Chartered Engineer status. Our Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc focuses on the key skills required by the modern mechanical engineer. It aims to provide education in mechanical engineering that will enable you to proceed to Chartered Engineer status. You will develop the versatility and depth of knowledge to deal with new and unusual challenges across a wide range of disciplines, within engineering and beyond. Teaching is underpinned by research in automotive systems, biomedical engineering, solid and fluid mechanics, electrical and thermal energy systems, energy conversion/storage and sustainable cities. You’ll also complete an individual research project – an in-depth experimental, theoretical or computational investigation of a topic chosen by you in conjunction with your academic supervisor.

Course details


Five core modules focus on essential advanced level aspects of solid and fluid mechanics, precision engineering, modelling and simulation. You will apply your learning to a range of complex systems, developing theories of interaction and representing these with mathematical formulae. There is a strong emphasis on using computational methods and industry standard software packages for mechanical engineering analysis.

Assessment method

Modules are assessed by a combination of coursework and written examinations.

Entry requirements
