This course offers a broad range of advanced subjects to develop your knowledge across the mechanical engineering disciplines. If you’re a graduate engineer who wishes to pursue a career in industry using advanced engineering techniques, or want to gain in-depth knowledge for a career in research or academia, this course will help you do that.

We emphasise the application of computational and experimental methods, and packages in mechanical engineering analysis, design and manufacture to solve complex engineering problems. You will be supported in developing advanced engineering skills, selecting particular modules based on your own background and will also choose from a wide variety of modules that allow you to tailor your studies to suit your own interests or career ambitions.

Entry Requirements

A bachelor degree with a 2:1 (hons) in a related engineering discipline. Successful applicants will have strong grades in relevant modules including advanced mathematics, fluid mechanics, strength of materials and dynamics. We may ask for further detailed module information if these are not clear on your transcript. Some optional modules will also require studies covering thermodynamics but this is not essential to gain entry onto the course.
