About the course
You'll specialise in mechanical and manufacturing engineering, and develop the skills and knowledge you'll need to apply for registration as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) when you graduate.
Chartered Engineers use a range of fundamental scientific principles to:
* research, develop and apply new technologies
* develop and promote advanced designs and design methods
* introduce new and more efficient production techniques
* initiate marketing and construction concepts
* pioneer new engineering services and management methods.
This course is flexible, so you'll have lots of choice in the specialist subject modules you take and the ways you learn. So you'll study some modules through lectures and tutorials, some online and others in your workplace. You'll study both on your own and as part of a group.

We've got close links with local businesses - including Rolls-Royce, Toyota, Balfour Beatty, Bombardier, Coors breweries, Novartis, Pektron, and Vinci - sector skills councils, professional bodies and the Regional Development Agency, EMDA. Our Industrial Advisory Panel is drawn from these industries and means we can keep up to date with the current developments in the industry and pass them on to you in our teaching.
If your undergraduate degree is not accredited by the Engineering Council as part of their requirements for the CEng, or you're unsure about studying a postgraduate course, you can do the Preparatory Programme - Preparing for Postgraduate Study in Arts, Design and Technology (Engineering) - before you start the MSc. If you're an international student you can combine this with an appropriate English course if you need to reach the international entry requirements.
You can study this course full time or part time.
When you graduate you'll be able to apply current technology to a variety of areas in mechanical and manufacturing engineering. You'll be able to move into a responsible job, with lots of professional satisfaction.
