This well regarded MSc in Mechanical Engineering Design provides students with the latest technological knowledge in the mechanical engineering design field. The programme has a practical orientation and aims to produce engineers with theoretical and practical knowledge that will allow them to analyse and investigate problems at an advanced level. The subjects available within the course provide a blend of analytical subjects and creative design courses to develop design ability that is applicable to a wide range of challenging applications with an emphasis on creativity and problem solving.
You follow a number of compulsory and optional course units in the first two semesters which typically include:
* Engineering Design
* Reliability and Maintainability
* Finite Element
* Research Method
Optional units (3 from 5)
* Advanced Vibration
* Solids, Structures and Fracture Mechanics
* Impact and Explosion Engineering
* Design Optimisation
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
