This innovative MSc course provides an advanced understanding of mechanical engineering, with the aim of producing postgraduates who can overcome the new and exciting challenges of the subject, and encourage imaginative and creative innovation. Balancing academic theory with practical considerations, this course covers key areas of the mechanical sciences such as stress analysis, CFD and heat transfer, along with product design, advanced materials, research methods and computer-aided engineering. A principal component of the course is the dissertation project, which is usually associated with current research activity or industrial consultancy in the School of Engineering, allowing students to gain substantial expertise in one specific area. You will pay attention to the development of investigative modelling and computational strategies. This will allow you acquire advanced knowledge and a systematic understanding of contemporary finite element modelling techniques, to analyse the behaviour of complex engineering systems and components. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of advanced solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and other analytical techniques used in product development and sustainability, and to apply these techniques to synthesise novel designs for a range of engineering applications.
How to apply
This course has a subject classification which requires students whose nationality is outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland to have an ATAS certificate, irrespective of country of residence at the point of application.

Students should normally be educated to honours degree level, with a minimum of a 2.2, in Mechanical Engineering, Technology or a closely related discipline. International Students will require approval from the Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS). Its aim is to help stop the spread of knowledge and skills that could be used in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their means of delivery. The ATAS is specifically designed to ensure that those applying for postgraduate study in certain sensitive subjects do not acquire knowledge that could potentially be used in WMD courses.
