Our MSc in Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Management aims to create engineering professionals with strong technical and leadership skills, and is tailored towards engineering students interested in pursuing a management career within industry.

The 12 month course combines advanced mechanical engineering subjects with management modules which have been specially designed for engineers. The engineering topics covered include structural dynamics, experimental stress analysis and fluid mechanics, alongside which you'll learn essential management techniques in areas such as marketing, business planning and entrepreneurship.

As part of the course you'll undertake an individual research project that brings together both technical and management issues, giving you the opportunity to apply business skills to an engineering context.

You'll also take part in a group project to design and market a commercially viable solution for a real customer, such as developing assistive aids for people with disabilities.
