MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering

Whether you’re a practising engineer or a graduate, this course can help you to develop as a technical specialist or manager in industry and manufacturing. You study both management theory and technical aspects of mechanical engineering. You then learn to combine these new skills with your subject interest in a project to develop a new product for the global marketplace.

Course length 12-36 Month(s)
Location City Campus

Course description

This course is for practicing engineers or graduates who want to become technical specialists or managers in industrial and manufacturing companies.

It increases your career potential by improving your
• knowledge and experience of mechanical engineering
• technical and problem solving skills
• management skills
• ability to take on greater responsibility

You also develop your understanding of current best practice in the theory and application of leading edge technologies, processes and systems in mechanical engineering.

You study
• two management modules
• five technical modules
• one optional module

Option modules include • advanced manufacturing technology • competitive design for manufacture • computational flow dynamics (CFD) • sustainability, energy and environmental management.

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.

Professional recognition

This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council 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.
