Course content

This course provides you with advanced knowledge and understanding in one or more of the many areas of mechanical engineering in which our Department has acknowledged expertise.

The MSc course provides students with a knowledge and understanding of the state-of-the-art in one or more of the many areas of mechanical engineering in which the Department has acknowledged expertise.

This combines with the potential for students to develop their abilities in subjects such as numerical analysis and signal processing, which are useful in all areas of mechanical engineering and are associated with the application of computers in engineering practice.

The principal component of the course is the individual project, which is usually associated with current research activity or industrial consultancy, allowing you to gain substantial expertise in one particular area.

Further expertise is developed by taking taught course modules. Students can study an unusually broad range of subjects in the Department as a result of our position as one of the largest university engineering departments in the UK.
