Course content

Embrace ground-breaking innovation with world-leading researchers on our IMechE accredited course. We’ll equip you to think adventurously, overcome problems and be part of the process of enabling society to advance. You’ll test your practical skills in our brand new industry-standard workshop.

You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of advanced design and analysis techniques, the use of modern materials and manufacturing technology. We’ll expand your knowledge in a wide range of mechanical engineering areas and related fields, giving you the scope to be creative and scientific in equal measure.

Our course will equip you with transferrable skills, including IT and management as well as data analysis. As a result you’ll be highly employable in the mechanical engineering marketplace, with a choice of different careers available to you.

Our facilities include a CAD/CAM centre, industrial-scale CNC milling machine, CNC lathe, rapid prototyping machine, scanning electronic microscope, Instron bi-axial fatigue-testing machine, tensile-testing machine, material-preparation facilities, welding equipment and electronic testing and measuring equipment such as oscilloscopes and signal generating and testing facilities.

Students completing an IMechE accredited degree are deemed to have met, part or all, of the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered or Incorporated Engineer and are in a strong position to move on to achieve professional engineering status after a period of initial professional development in industry. The MSc will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng(Hons) accredited for CEng will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration.

It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme who do not also have an appropriately accredited Honours degree will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council; they will need to have their first qualification individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.
