The Masters in Mechanical Engineering (ME) (60 ECTS Level 9 Masters) course follows on from the four-year undergraduate BE programme in Mechanical Engineering, providing students with the opportunity to take a first step in advanced mechanical engineering education and research skills within the framework of the academic and professional requirements for Chartered Engineer status. This course combines advanced taught modules and transferable skills modules with a significant (Semester 1 & 2) research and development project. This large group development project, which is the capstone of the ME, is conducted in collaboration with an engineering industrial partner and is aligned with specific research themes.
