Months of entry
The programme will include 9 subject-specific technical modules of 10 credits each covering vehicle engineering, mechanics, thermal systems, energy, computational geometry, manufacturing processes, robotics, biomechanics, and micro electro-mechanical systems. A 20-credit synoptic mechanical engineering module has been integrated into the programme and provides research-focused teaching of selected novel case studies from various research areas being carried out within the School in order to enhance the relevant knowledge base of the students.
A further 10 credit module covering research skills, project management and business enterprise will provide the necessary training to enhance the competencies in professional skills that modern mechanical engineers are expected to possess. The latter part of the programme will include a 60 credit summer project module. The project can either be based at the University, or be carried out in industry.
