Engineer a high level career for yourself with this advanced course in Mechanical Engineering. While a graduate degree is a valuable foundation, the journey to the top of your career ladder requires more intensive skills. A post-graduate qualification not only gives you the knowledge and confidence to plan, manage and implement complex projects: it also tells prospective employees that you're serious about your role in the industry.
This course builds on your existing degree-level knowledge of engineering, delving more deeply into areas such design philosophy, the role of stress and strain in structural integrity, design methods and analysis, and the critical environmental impact appraisal of alternative engineering solutions.
This course will add to your existing knowledge to give you the advanced engineering skills demanded by employers. You'll graduate with the ability to critically appraise the environmental impact of alternative engineering solutions, develop a design infrastructure with reference to design systems and their management, and analyse stress in structures using finite element method.
You'll also be able to appraise the impact of current approaches to business and engineering data management, critically explore product development strategies, including concurrent engineering, critically evaluate a given research project and deliver the project proposal involving literature review, analyse management problems and synthesise solutions.
The full-time programme is based over three trimesters, and generally lasts for one year or one year and three months (depending on the intake trimester). The course will involve you in lectures, tutorials, laboratory sessions and independent study.
The programme structure is currently under review and subject to approval. For more information please contact us.
