Introduction to the Mechanical Engineering MSc Programme
The Mechanical Engineering MSc is designed to offer an advanced level of study in specific aspects of mechanical engineering that are in demand from industry. The degree comprises study in analysis and design of power machinery systems, engineering structures, vibration, control and the use of computers in advanced engineering analysis.
The taught part of the course comprises 7 subject modules – 6 compulsory and one optional. These modules consist of lectures, seminars, tutorials, and example classes. Each module is assessed by coursework submission alone or a combination of examination and coursework. Some include oral presentation of project/assignment work.
The first two academic terms consist of taught modules, followed by examinations at the end of term 2 in March. In term 3, students continue work on their group project and their individual project under the supervision of a member of academic staff. The Project Management exam is also in term 3. After May, students work full time on their individual projects.
