Mechanical Engineering

Course overview

A postgraduate major in Mechanical Engineering will provide you with an advanced understanding of the design of mechanical components, whole machines, mechanical systems and mechanical processes.

You will learn how to analyse mechanical design, using the principles of motion, energy, and force to ensure the safety and reliability of products, and you will understand how efficient systems and processes support the manufacture of products at a competitive cost.

Areas of study include advanced computational fluid analysis, experimental robotics, advanced combustion and computational nanotechnology.
