Advanced Mechanical Engineering

MSc (H1S3)


Mechanical Engineering is the application of physical science to practical problem solving. As a Mechanical Engineer you could be working on anything from a simple component such as a switch, to more complex machines such an internal combustion engine or an entire system such as an automobile or a factory production line. The programme has a choice of modules enabling you to select a Solid Mechanics, Robotics and Automation or Thermofluids and Combustion pathway thereby allowing you to follow your interests.

The Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc at QMUL is delivered by a large number of specialist academic staff, who, in addition to their teaching, are involved in internationally recognised research in a wide range of topics, including:

  • Energy generation and conversion, including alternative and sustainable sources
  • Heat transfer and fluid mechanics
  • Computational engineering, both solids and fluids
  • Control engineering
  • Robotics
  • Materials science, including structural and functional materials

A 60 credit research project will be undertaken supervised by staff working in a wide range of research areas and students will have access to our state of the art facilities. Several high performance computing clusters owned by the university support a full spectrum of computational research. Our well equipped laboratories include a wide range of IC engines, heat transfer facilities, wind tunnels, an anechoic chamber, a UK CueSim Flight Simulator and France-Price Induction Jet engine test bench, and materials synthesis and characterisation labs. Nanotechnology research is further supported by the facilities and expertise provided by Nanoforce, a company directly associated with the School.
