Course summary

At a time when there is an international shortage of mechanical engineers, there has never been a better time to enter this dynamic and rewarding industry. This course has been developed in close partnership with employers, focusing on the development of key skills that employers specifically demand. New learning and teaching facilities are an integral part of a recent £10m investment at the University of Wolverhampton’s Telford Innovation Campus - a significant and carefully targeted investment to meet all the teaching and learning needs of students on this postgraduate course. Our state-of-the-art specialist equipment used in the delivery of this course including Solid Mechanics and Fluid Mechanics laboratories, Subsonic and Supersonic Wind Tunnels, Advanced Materials and Composites Analysis and Advanced Additive Manufacturing facilities are available at our Innovation Campus. The course will be underpinned by high quality teaching, highly experienced and qualified members of academic staff who are at the cutting-edge of research in their respective fields. This two-year master’s degree with an integrated Professional Practice Placement enhances your qualification by adding a vocational or research-based placement to the traditional taught master’s programme. A vocational internship is a superb way to gain work experience and give your CV a competitive edge and make you more attractive to international employers, whilst a research internship provides you with the opportunity to develop your analytical, team-working, research and academic skills by working alongside a research team in an academic setting. By studying this two-year master’s degree with Professional Practice, you will enjoy a wider experience of study and culture whilst living in the UK also benefiting from a vacation period when you can gain extra work experience, enjoy travel, or relax. The course has been developed according to the UK Engineering Council's benchmark requirements for professional engineering, to ensure that our students enter the workforce with the broad expertise and relevant capabilities that employers’ value.
