From the production of silicone chips to the development electric vehicles and jet aircraft, mechanical engineers connect us to a wide range of everyday activities.   If you want to enhance your existing engineering qualifications, move into research, or use advanced engineering techniques, this highly practical and challenging postgraduate course will guide you.

Delivered through a modular programme, you’ll blend theory with the latest methodology and practice. You’ll review the design, development, commission and maintenance of engineering systems. You’ll learn about the social, legal and environmental issues associated with senior engineering roles.

This course is relevant for graduates with a relevant engineering degree, or relevant professional experience, who want to develop their skills as mechanical engineers. Throughout the course, there is a strong management theme, so you understand the nuances of holding a senior engineering role.
