Master of Engineering (Hons) MechanicalAwarded by: Teesside University, UK

Programme Objectives

The overall aims of the programme are to:

• Produce graduates with an enthusiasm for mechanical engineering, a wide appreciation of its application in different contexts and to involve them in an intellectually stimulating and satisfying experience of learning and studying in depth.
• Produce graduates with the ability to apply their knowledge and understanding in order to be competitive and innovative to exploit opportunities.
• Produce graduates with the mechanical engineering knowledge and skills required to critically evaluate information, assumptions and concepts to make argued conclusions and informed judgements for solving real engineering problems and continuous improvement.
• Produce graduates with the professional qualities and skills for employability enabling them to either pursue programmes of high level research or to move directly into their chosen employment in industry and/or consulting/research organisation where they will become the problem solvers, innovators and leaders of the future.

Distinctive Features

This programme is delivered using a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars, student-led sessions and self-study; together with hands-on laboratory and practical sessions. There is extensive use of group project work and during the final years students undertake substantial research-based individual projects.

Two key themes run each year: professional skills and career development; and a group project to foster problem-based learning and to encourage both team working and interpersonal skills. The group projects will provide an opportunity for interested students to become involved in the Formula Student initiative.

Learning is supported throughout by the University’s virtual learning environment; and the Library and Information Services, which provide extensive access to physical, electronic and online resources.

Study Overseas

Upon successful completion and passing of year 1 and year 2, students will have an opportunity to study at Teesside University, UK campus for year 3 and year 4 of the programme. Fees and details to be advised.
