Program description

Advanced Mechanical Engineering

The MSc course provides students with the knowledge and understanding of the state-of-the-art in one or more of the many areas of mechanical engineering within our department.

Our Department of Mechanical Engineering is one of the largest mechanical engineering departments in the world, with topics ranging from the traditional, such as aerotechnologies and engine performance, to more recent engineering topics, such as medical engineering, robotics, clean energy and fire science. The course allows for students to develop abilities which are transferable to all areas of mechanical engineering.

The principal component of the course is the individual project, which is usually associated with current research activity or industrial consultancy, allowing you to gain substantial expertise in a particular area.

Further expertise is developed by taking taught course modules. Students choose 6-10 modules according to their envisaged career path and from a broad range of taught subjects available in the department.

This course also delivered in the study pace of part-time with duration of 2 to 3 years.
