Mechanical Engineering

Suggested Masters in Mechanical Engineering

M.Sc. Mechanical Engineering

Today's society relies on mechanical engineering for effective and safe solutions everywhere. The field spans the broadest range of activities and technology sectors, including energy, transportation, materials, machinery, and industrial production, but also consumer goods, sports, medical devices, and environmental protection. The Mechanical Engineering course is offered by Aalto University.

School of Engineering
M.Sc. Applied Mechanics

The aim of this programme at the Chalmers University of Technology is to provide an internationally competitive education and prepare students for a professional career in any area of engineering and development. This requires an advanced knowledge of modelling, computational and experimental issues in Applied Mechanics.

Masters Programmes
M.Sc. Environmental Fluid Mechanics

The Master's programme in Environmental Fluid Mechanics offered by Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA) is a high level two-year (M1 and M2) training in fluid dynamics of natural media, complemented with numerical and experimental methods. Natural fluid media involve lakes, rivers, the ocean from the coast to the abyss or the atmospheric boundary layer.

Mechanical engineering is a branch of engineering that concentrates into the design, production and usage and operation of machines, from small individual parts and devices (small sensors) to large systems (spacecraft). Mechanical engineering aims at controlling the principles of motion, energy, and force through mechanical solutions and also deals with analysing problems to see how mechanical and thermal devices might help solve a particular human/social problem, thus inventing new devices.

Mechanical engineering uses concepts of material theory and physics and combines knowledge of maths, technology, business and management. Important sub-disciplines of mechanical engineering are mechanics, mechatronics and thermodynamics.

Many universities provide Bachelor’s and Master’s degree, particularly Master of Science programmes in mechanical engineering. Students will learn how to assembly and install new and modified mechanical assemblies, components, or machine tools and how to collect and analyse engineering data. They will also develop design skills, as they have to prepare drawings, plans and designs for mechanical engineering work.

Graduates from a mechanical engineering degree can take contracting or consulting jobs on the design, implementation, operation and maintenance of equipment and machinery and choose from career options like: mechanical engineer, maintenance engineer, instrumentation engineer, contracting civil engineer, engineering/energy consultant, engineering technician, engineering draftsperson.
