MSc Mechanical Engineering

MSc Mechanical Engineering

There is strong demand for high-quality engineers with a postgraduate qualification in mechanical engineering and a good range of skills. This MSc Mechanical Engineering has been designed to help you achieve Chartered Engineer (CEng) status and will develop the technical and non-technical skills needed to succeed in this industry.

The range of modules will enhance the depth of your knowledge, while developing the skills to manage people and projects. You will use state-of-the-art engineering analysis software, and employ appropriate analytical and computer-based techniques. Additionally, you will gain an awareness of wider issues such as environmental management and safety. Your dissertation will allow you to research a specific topic, based on real issues that organisations face. Staff are active in research and/or consultancy, which brings relevant case studies and context to the subjects you will study.

Teaching

The MSc Mechanical Engineering is delivered in two major blocks that offer an intensive but flexible learning pattern, with two entry opportunities for applicants each year (February and September). Modules are taught through lectures, tutorials and practical laboratory work.

We have excellent links with employers in Wales, the UK and beyond. Through regular consultation with practising professionals, we keep our mechanical engineering courses up-to-date with industry standards. Our strong links also mean you’ll have opportunities for site visits, industrial placements and, for students on sandwich courses, practitioner mentoring. Our lecturers are experts in their subject areas, having worked in, or with, industry, conducting research, presenting at conferences, publishing their work, and informing your studies with the latest insights. Not only will you be taught by academics who are specialists in their fields, but you will also benefit from guest speakers from the engineering world

Assessment

The Mechanical Engineering Masters is continually assessed by coursework or a mixture of coursework and exams. The dissertation has three assessment elements: a thesis, a poster presentation and an oral examination (viva voce).
