Study type Taught


Course summary

  • Develop your understanding of current best practice in the leading edge technologies, processes and systems of mechanical engineering.

  • Enhance your employability through achieving higher-level technical knowledge and personal skills.

  • Study on a course that meets the Engineering Council’s UK-SPEC requirements for further learning.

  • Meet the academic requirements for Chartered Engineering (CEng) status.

  • Qualify on a course accredited by the IMechE.

This course is suitable for you if you wish to develop your technical expertise in mechanical engineering and is ideal if you are preparing to move to a more technically demanding role.

How you learn

You will study a combination of technical modules addressing advanced aspects of mechanical engineering, complemented by two management modules and a masters project.

Optional modules are in the subject areas of manufacturing, design, design analysis (i.e. element analysis) and sustainability, energy and environmental management.

You learn through:

  • lectures

  • seminars

  • tutorials

  • laboratory sessions

  • problem solving

  • critical reflection

  • independent study

  • group project work

  • coursework

  • assessments

There are opportunities to study abroad at one of our partner universities with the possibility of funding through the Erasmus programme (subject to the UK’s continued participation in the Erasmus programme following the Brexit transition period).

Applied learning

Live projects

We encourage you to learn through the application of theories, concepts and knowledge to real-life situations (such as your own organisation) or by using case studies.

Our part time students can find that their masters projects are typically of significant importance to their companies and can raise their profile in the organisation.

The international product development module involves working in multidisciplinary teams to develop a new product in a global market. This develops much sought after advanced technical and business skills. The project provides a supported environment to develop your ability in an area of your interest.


You can design, build and fly a remote-controlled aircraft as part of the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Challenge in Snowdonia.

Apply to design, build and race a car as part of the Formula Student competition. This year our SHURacing team had its best ever performance.


This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration.

It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme who do not also have an appropriately accredited Honours degree, will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council; and will need to have their first qualification individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.
