The courses is aimed at students who want to study advanced topics in mechanical engineering with a focus on power plant technologies. It provides mechanical engineering graduates with an in-depth technical understanding of advanced mechanical engineering topics relevant to the power generation industry. You’ll also develop generic skills that allow you to contribute effectively in developing company capabilities. The course helps to make you more employable and also satisfies the further learning requirements necessary to obtain Chartered Engineer status.
Compulsory classes: Electrical power systems; gas and steam turbines; boiler thermal hydraulics. Optional classes: Engineering composites; pressurised systems; aerodynamic performance; aerodynamic propulsion systems; machinery diagnosis and condition monitoring; spaceflight mechanics; advanced topics in fluid systems engineering; polymer and polymer composites; materials for high temperature applications; energy and resources and policy; energy modelling and monitoring; industrial metallurgy. All MSc students will do an Individual Project. Generic modules: Design management; project management; risk management; financial engineering; sustainability; environmental impact assessment;
Assessment is by written assignments, exams and the individual project.
