Course summary

This programme aims to provide you with a sound understanding of Advanced Mechanical Engineering principles and the ability to undertake teamwork and communicate ideas. The core modules studied on the programme will develop your understanding and knowledge of the principles of Advanced Mechanical Engineering to an advanced level. They include specialist knowledge in thermo and fluid dynamics, combustion in IC engines, alternative and conventional energy generation methods and nuclear engineering. You will be taught techniques for managing projects and research, giving you highly desirable skills for working in industry. This programme is fully accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. This programme aligns with the current accredited Undergraduate integrated Masters MEng 4th year in Mechanical Engineering with co-taught M level modules from the existing programme organised in two 12-week semesters with examinations at the end of each semester worth 120 credits from a total of 180. This is then combined with an MSc advanced research project over the summer term worth the remaining 60 credits. Projects Project work which contributes 60 credits, will be based on a topic of industrial or scientific relevance, and will be carried out in laboratories in the University or at an approved placement in industry. The project is examined by dissertation, and award of the MSc (Eng) degree will require evidence of in-depth understanding, mastery of research techniques, ability to analyse assembled data, and assessment of outcomes.


Entry requirements

Normally a UK 2.1 or equivalent but students graduating from a UK university with a 2.2 degree can be considered on a case by case basis. This should be in Engineering or Science with appropriate knowledge of core engineering science topics at bachelor degree level. International qualifications Applications from international students are welcome. International qualifications will be evaluated in line with the National Recognition Information Centre (NARIC) guidelines.
