This is an accredited five-year course leading to a masters level qualification covering all the essential topics in engineering science and engineering design, as well as the opportunity to develop interpersonal and management skills. Optional modules will allow you to specialise and focus on your strengths and interests. The course provides technical, management and project content at a higher level and breadth than the BEng degree and is an ideal qualification for engineers who intend to become chartered. You will get ‘hands-on’ experience in our workshops, turning designs into reality and conducting investigations and experiments in our well-equipped labs to complement theoretical learning.
The first two years provide a good grounding in the broad fundamentals of mechanical engineering science and engineering design. The science subjects studied include thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, dynamics and electro-mechanical systems. The third year of this course is spent on a group design-and-make project, when, depending on the stream you have selected, you will study a number of core and optional modules. The fourth year of this course is spent in industry. In your final year you will undertake a major individual project. You will also study compulsory modules in advanced engineering topics along with a range of optional modules, allowing you to tailor the course to your interests.
