Module overview

This module consists core mechanical engineering topics to cover the six themes in Advanced Mechanical Engineering Sciences (AMES) MSc program, i.e. Engineering Materials, Biomedical Engineering, Mechatronics, Computational design, Propulsion and Engine Systems, and Advanced tribology. Fundamental knowledge relevant to each theme is included as part of module. Current issues in these advanced mechanical application areas are considered. Key laboratory skills in mechanical characterisation of engineering materials, biomedical engineering, computational design and tribology are taught and practiced. Literature review, proposal writing and presentation skills for research projects are taught and evaluated.
