Sara is responsible for delivering a number of engineering management-related modules to our undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students.

Applied learning

Live projects

We encourage you to learn through the application of theories, concepts and knowledge to real-life situations (such as your own organisation) or by using case studies.

Our part time students can find that their masters projects are typically of significant importance to their companies and can raise their profile in the organisation.

The international product development module involves working in multidisciplinary teams to develop a new product in a global market. This develops much sought after advanced technical and business skills. The project provides a supported environment to develop your ability in an area of your interest.

Competitions

You can design, build and fly a remote-controlled aircraft as part of the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Challenge in Snowdonia.

Apply to design, build and race a car as part of the Formula Student competition. This year our SHURacing team had its best ever performance.


Future careers

This course prepares you for a career as a

  • technical specialist in mechanical engineering
  • manager in industrial and manufacturing companies
  • engineering researcher

Accreditation

This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration.

It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme who do not also have an appropriately accredited Honours degree, will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council; and will need to have their first qualification individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.

Overseas students

Overseas applicants from countries whose first language is not English must normally produce evidence of competence in English. An IELTS score of 6.0 with 5.5 in all skills (or equivalent) is the standard for non-native speakers of English. If your English language skill is currently below an IELTS score of 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in all skills we recommend you consider a Sheffield Hallam University Pre-sessional English course which will enable you to achieve an equivalent English level.

India

• a first class BE in an relevant discipline, or a good second class BE with a strong performance in mechanical and manufacturing subjects

China

• a four year Bachelors degree in an relevant discipline, with an overall average of at least 80 per cent or equivalent

Other countries

• a good honours degree or equivalent in an relevant subject
