MECHANICAL ENGINEERING - MSC

By studying the MSc Mechanical Engineering course you will engineer a better future.  A highly-respected course, our course will enhance your strategic management and leadership capabilities. The course builds on sustainable futures and the Government's STEM agenda, helping you to gain the knowledge and attributes needed to thrive in this ever-changing industry, and you'll work on industry-standard complex analytical tools such as Matlab/Simulink, CATIA, Ansys, and ADAMS Mechanisms.

WHAT'S COVERED IN THIS COURSE?

Advance your knowledge and understanding, develop your critical thinking and prepare to work across a range of organizations with our MSc Mechanical Engineering course. Overall the course aims to produce skilled engineers capable of undertaking mechanical engineering tasks within and across organizations utilizing the latest tools and technologies.

The course will encourage creative thinking and the development of engineering leadership skills. Building on a foundation of the generic skills required by tomorrow’s engineers, the courses explore the wider context of engineering, as well as the application of advanced engineering principles to solve problems through research. You will engage in independent study and systematic inquiry at an advanced level and take responsibility for the conclusions drawn from it.

There will be an opportunity to integrate and differentiate a variety of traditions and bodies of knowledge to continue to advance their knowledge and understanding and develop new skills at an advanced level through research-led modules. In addition to further academic research opportunities, career prospects are expected to keep pace with the rapid advances in computer-aided methods and intelligent technologies, hence, there is expected to be continuing demand for competent, versatile postgraduates who can design and implement innovative solutions for industry. The course has previously achieved academic accreditation from IMechE and IET. This accreditation has been maintained in recognition of demonstrating that key principles have been incorporated and integrated into the curriculum design and module development of the courses.
