Advanced Mechanical Engineering

University of Aberdeen


Old Aberdeen Campus


MSc Advance Mechanical Engineering is the latest addition to the university's world-class suite of engineering programmes; opening up a broader range of career opportunities in many areas of Mechanical Engineering.

The programme will provide graduate engineers with an in-depth technical understanding of advanced mechanical topics, particularly in the area of computational mechanics, mechanical response of engineering materials and reliability engineering.

It will enhance the skills of experienced engineers who have been already working in industry and equip graduates with transferable skills required for demanding employment.

The programme emphasises the application of computational techniques and packages to solve complex engineering problems. This will be accomplished by core courses. Since the new MSc programme involves a broad range of applications in Mechanical Engineering, students tailor the programme to their future goals and preferences through their individual project and by choosing two of five optional courses.
