Advanced Mechanical Engineering at University of Warwick - UCAS

Course summary

The Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc focuses on key skills required for a career in mechanical engineering. Warwick's School of Engineering, ranked 6th in the UK (Guardian University Guide 2022 for General Engineering), will provide you with versatility and depth of knowledge. This course is accredited by the IET, and IMechE and InstMC. Our Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc focuses on the key skills required by the modern mechanical engineer. 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 will 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.
