Course content

This programme aims to provide the opportunity for graduates to join the industry with a broad understanding of mechanical engineering, power generation, and the associated control and economics that make such technologies successful.

Our Master's in Advanced Mechanical Engineering has been developed around the key strands of energy conversion, system design, system control, and sustainability. Graduates have the chance to develop the necessary knowledge and skills required to work on the engineering challenges of the 21st Century.

You can be part of a thriving hub of research and development within the School of Engineering, where you will have the chance to work alongside academics on projects and gain exposure to industrial partners.

The course is a taught postgraduate programme consisting of 180 credits. The programme is delivered on both a full-time (1-year) and part-time (2-year) basis. The delivery of the modules for this MSc programme run over a full academic year in a block structure. Students will complete a series of taught modules comprising 120 credits of study and an engineering-based project making up the remaining 60 credits.

While on the programme, students will have the opportunity to select from three clearly defined pathways. These pathways aim to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to address the engineering challenges of the 21st Century. In addition to the standard MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering route, students can select pathways which lead to the awards of MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering with Sustainable Energy or MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering with Intelligent Systems.

Postgraduate level study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the materials covered in lectures and seminars. As a general guide, for every hour in class, students are expected to spend at least two to three hours in independent study.
