English Language Requirements: IELTS 6.0 or equivalent. If your first language is not English, you may need to provide evidence of your English language ability. If you do not yet meet our requirements, our English Language Teaching Unit (ELTU) offers a range of courses to help you to improve your English to the necessary standard.
MATLAB and CAD
Option modules, choose one option module from:
Advanced Fluid Dynamics
Advanced Solid Mechanics
Understanding Surfaces in Engineering
Plus two option modules from:
Modelling and Classification of Data
Systems Engineering and Spacecraft Systems
Current Trends in Aerospace
Option modules, choose four option modules from:
Computational Fluid Dynamics
Advanced Materials Modelling

After completing all the modules, you will apply the knowledge you have gained throughout the course to solving an engineering problem at a professional level. You will define the nature of the problem and draw up plans for tackling it, presented as a formal proposal (including a financial costing). Your project supervisor will meet regularly with you for feedback on the project.
Industry placement (optional)
You may, if you wish, choose to study for an MSc in Advanced Mechanical Engineering with Industry, which includes the opportunity to apply for a range of industry placements arranged by the Department. Your placement, of between three and nine months, will be undertaken after the taught part of the course, allowing you to acquire industrial experience and develop an appreciation of how the new skills you have acquired relate to problems in industry.
