Program Information

Degree Offered:

M.Sc.-Mechanical Engineering

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The course has two stages: the taught course stage, which takes up the first and second semesters and gives 120 credits, and the dissertation stage, which takes up the remainder of the 12 months course duration, and gives 60 credits. The M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering has a number of core and optional modules. The second stage of the course consists of a major project, which normally arises from our research work or from industry, and which is undertaken over the summer. The project is based on the application of the mechanical engineering disciplines to a practical problem. You will be expected to write a 15,000 word dissertation based on the project work, to be submitted by mid-September, a year after starting the course. Modules: Interdisciplinary Competitive Design, Design Optimisation, Mobile Robotics and Wireless Sensors, Mechanical Vibration, Control Systems Design, Materials Failure Mechanics, Computer Application of Numerical Methods, Finite Element Methods, Transport Process Modeling, Energy Studies, Advanced Solid Mechanics, Modeling & Simulation of Manufacturing Systems, Environmental Computational Fluid Dynamics, Risk Management, Reliability Engineering, Vehicle Dynamics.
