This programme aims to provide science and engineering graduates from diverse backgrounds with an academically challenging exposure to current Advanced Mechanical Engineering Science.
The aims of the programme are to:
• Enable you to acquire advanced knowledge and practical skills needed for a professional career in your chosen specialist theme and to provide you with specialist knowledge and skills relevant to that theme.
• Provide you with a sound understanding of the fundamental principles, operation requirements, design criteria and engineering applications in advanced mechanical engineering science
• Enhance your transferable skills, including critical analysis, problem solving, project management, decision making, leadership, and communication by oral, visual and/or written means.
• Equip you with specialist knowledge, scientific and technical expertise and research skills for further research in advanced mechanical engineering science.
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.
