Course content

The Masters programme in Mechanical Engineering specialises within two study options - 'Design' and 'Manufacture'. These options share a number of common modules that directly reflect the activities of a professional Mechanical Engineer. The development of these Masters options is in direct response to the specification of benchmark requirements for professional competence by the UK's Engineering Council(UK_SPEC). This programme requires ATAS Certification.

Mechanical engineers have traditionally been not only specialists, but also generalists, who have the breadth of expertise necessary for operation as project managers, leaders and innovators. In addition to advancing the core knowledge base of the discipline in your selected option, the programme will provide the necessary and continuing development of appropriate inter-personal skills at this level to enable management of resources and planning objectives.
