The course provides an academically challenging exposure to modern issues in Advanced Mechanical Engineering Science giving you the opportunity to specialising in Mechatronics. It is suitable for engineering, mathematics or physical sciences graduates who wish to specialise in advanced mechanical engineering science or to support continued professional development. It offers a sound understanding of the relevant fundamental science, methods, analysis and engineering applications.
The taught element of the programme consists of a maximum of 8 modules and is followed by a substantial research project leading to a dissertation. The specific goals are:
- To enable you to acquire advanced knowledge and practical skills needed for a professional career in mechatronics and to provide you with specialist knowledge and skills relevant to this theme.
- To provide you with a sound understanding of the fundamental principles, operation requirements, design criteria and engineering applications in advanced mechanical engineering science.
- To enhance your transferable skills, including critical analysis, problem solving, project management, decision making, leadership, and communication by oral, visual and/or written means.
- To equip you with specialist knowledge, scientific and technical expertise and research skills for further research in advanced mechanical engineering science, and mechatronics in particular.
The full-time MSc programme lasts for 12 months. The first 8 months are normally spent mainly on the taught component, with lectures divided into two 12-week periods (Semesters 1 and 2), and with exams at the end of each semester. The final 4 months are spent full-time on a research project, for which some preparation is done in Semester 2.
