Advanced Mechanical Engineering - MSc (Full-Time, 2018 Entry)


Our one-year MSc in Advanced Mechanical Engineering aims to deepen and broaden your skills equipping you to tackle new and unusual challenges within the field of engineering and beyond.

Core Modules:
Five core modules focus on essential advanced level aspects of solid and fluid mechanics, precision engineering, modelling and simulation. You will apply your learning to a range of complex systems, developing theories of interaction and representing these with mathematical formulae. There is a strong emphasis on using computational methods and industry standard software packages for mechanical engineering analysis.

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Precision Engineering and Microsystems
  • Dynamic Analysis of Mechanical Systems
  • Finite Element Methods
  • Systems Modelling and Simulation

Optional Modules:

Three optional modules allow you to follow your personal interests and provide you with advanced knowledge and understanding in one or more of the many areas of mechanical engineering in which the School has renowned expertise, such as advanced fluid dynamics, energy technologies, computational modelling and biomedical engineering.

  • Advanced Fluid Dynamics
  • Mathematical and Computational Modelling
  • Heat Transfer Theory and Design
  • Renewable Energy from the Environment
  • Fuel Cells and Energy Storage
  • Biomechanics

* The modules mentioned above may be subject to change. Please read our terms and conditions for more detailed information.

The degree comprises eight taught modules and a project.

A research project enhances specialism in your chosen field. You will devise the project with guidance from your academic supervisor. Typically this is associated with current University research activity or industrial collaboration relevant to society. Examples of previous projects include:

  • Developing and testing an improved solar thermal collector for hot water
  • Gearbox design for wind turbines to withstand electrical faults
  • CFD for electric car battery cooling system design
  • Modelling and Simulation of Biological Control Systems

Modules are assessed by a combination of coursework and written examinations.


Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.
