Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses
This accredited four-year course leading to a master’s level encompasses a broad foundation in engineering science and engineering design, as well as the opportunity to develop interpersonal and management skills. Optional modules will allow you to specialise and focus on your strengths and interests. The course provides technical, management and project content at a higher level and breadth than the BEng degree and is an ideal qualification for engineers who intend to become chartered. You will get hands-on experience in our workshops, turning designs into reality and conducting investigations and experiments in our well-equipped labs to complement theoretical learning. Our strong links with companies such as Rolls Royce, Ford, BP and Shell, guarantee that teaching is relevant and meaningful.
The first two years provide a firm foundation in engineering design, materials, basic manufacturing processes, engineering science, engineering maths and management as well as group-based design, make and test projects. Course flexibility opens up in the third and fourth years, with optional modules to help you tailor your degree to your interests and aspirations. You can choose the broad mechanical engineering programme, or you can pick one of the specialist streams (aerospace, automotive, bioengineering, management, manufacture, materials, mechatronics or sustainability). You will undertake a major group design-and-make project in your third year and an individual research project in your final year.
