About this course

We've changed some parts of this course for the 2020 to 2021 academic year due to coronavirus (COVID-19). These changes may affect how we'll teach you and which modules you'll take.

The programme specification addendum (PDF, 1,328 KB) has all the latest details.

Learn how to take a product from initial concept, to design and manufacture. Our 4-year master's in Mechanical Engineering with industry placement will put you on the path to becoming a chartered engineer. You'll learn about mechanical design, structures and materials, then select specialist topics to study. Project work throughout the degree provides the opportunity to apply your design skills to real-world problems.

This integrated master's lets you select a specialist theme pathway for years 3 and 4, or stay on in this generalised Mechanical Engineering theme. This general theme lets you take optional modules from the specialised courses in years 3 and 4.

You'll cover the essential principles of engineering, and learn about:

  • modelling and computing

  • systems design

  • law

  • management

In your third year you'll complete an individual research project and in year 4 you'll take part in a group design project. These projects are often linked to current research or topics that have practical relevance to industry.

As part of this course you can:

  • use our design workshops and studios

  • develop your design and computing skills

  • showcase your work in our annual Engineering Design Show

  • apply your knowledge to your choice of specialist areas, from automobiles to mechatronics

  • go on site visits to experience engineering in practice

You can take this course with an additional year-long, paid placement. Apply with UCAS code 30HH for the Industrial Placement Year option.

This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) as meeting the academic requirement, in full, for Chartered Engineer registration.
