A bachelor degree with a 2:1 (hons) in a related engineering discipline. Successful applicants will have strong grades in relevant modules including advanced mathematics, fluid mechanics, strength of materials and dynamics. We may ask for further detailed module information if these are not clear on your transcript. Some optional modules will also require studies covering thermodynamics but this is not essential to gain entry onto the course.
All applicants will need to have GCSE English Language at grade C or above, or an appropriate English language qualification.
Months of entry
This course offers a broad range of advanced subjects to develop your knowledge across the mechanical engineering disciplines. If you’re a graduate engineer who wishes to pursue a career in industry using advanced engineering techniques, or want to gain in-depth knowledge for a career in research or academia, this course will help you do that.
We emphasise the application of computational methods and packages in mechanical engineering analysis, design and manufacture to solve complex engineering problems. You’ll choose from a wide variety of modules that allow you to tailor your studies to suit your own interests or career ambitions.
You’ll be taught in world-class facilities by researchers who are making breakthroughs in their fields. It’s an excellent opportunity to gain a wide range of knowledge and skills that will prepare you for an exciting and challenging career.
We have an impressive range of world-class facilities to support your studies. In addition to our advanced CAD facilities for design work, we have the latest industry-standard software for computational fluid dynamics and finite element modelling of material stress analysis. There’s also a well-equipped workshop with CNC machinery, 3D printing facilities and wire EDM for building parts and extensive lab facilities for solid and fluid dynamics, erosion, corrosion, tribology, combustion, control and dynamics, robotics and optical measurement.
This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.
