Course content

The MSc in Mechanical Engineering at LSBU is a broad-based course which will enable you to deepen your knowledge and understanding in core mechanical engineering disciplines, combined with research and business skills demanded by Industry and the Professional accrediting body (IMechE). The modules studied are informed by applied research from within the department and close links with industry and enterprise organisations. This MSc course builds on LSBU's rich history in engineering, where it has been studied for over 100 years.

LSBU offers sophisticated practical facilities including a virtual reality suite, advanced CAD-CAM capability including multi-axis milling, turning, and coordinate-measuring machine (CMM). Laboratories are well equipped for experimentation in solids, solid-mechanics and thermofluids. In addition to structured sessions, you'll be encouraged to utilise the facilities for your major project.

Research and business skills are developed through specific modules, using engineering examples and case-studies and our course incorporates a management-related module focused on entrepreneurship and project management. This management module develops our graduates' commercial awareness and ensures that they have the skill-set valued by industry employers. The major project offers the opportunity to specialise in one area, which may be relevant to your future employment or further research aspirations. You'll be offered a wide range of projects supported by academics with expertise in the field, or you can propose your own project.

We're the number one London modern university for graduate prospects in Mechanical Engineering (Complete University Guide 2019).
