Course content

By combining theory and hands-on learning, our postgraduate Mechanical Engineering master’s degree helps you get ready for a career in the field. Our facilities, which include our High Voltage Energy Storage lab and Joining Technology Research Centre, double as teaching and research spaces.

Use your dissertation and extra-curricular activities to explore your passion and sharpen your skills. And let visiting professionals from the industry show you what a career in this discipline has to offer.

You’ll analyse and test your designs using industry standard CAD and simulation packages, before moving onto design implementation. Our tutors are experts in their fields, and their collective research spans design and simulation, sustainable engineering, materials and joining technology. This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
