Mechanical engineering programme from Reykjavik University - Iceland's centre for learning and innovation is concerned with the transfer of mass and energy. As such it is a broad field of study with applications ranging from the design and manufacture of microscale electromechanical devices to the building and operation of powerplants capable of delivering gigawatt output. Mechanical engineering skills are essential in the fields of robotics, automation and control. Mechanical engineers design gas turbine engines and generators based on their knowledge of thermodynamics, fluid flow and advanced materials.

About

Mechanical engineering at Reykjavik University offers an excellent opportunity to explore scientific questions such as the nature of turbulent flow; to work on advanced devices such as autonomous vehicles; to develop novel manufacturing and fabrication methods and to design industrial processes and energy delivery systems. A degree in mechanical engineering is a springboard for intellectual stimulation and professional development. There are two main fields of study offered by the school: Mechanical design and mechatronics; and thermal science and fluids.

Mechanical design and Mechatronics:

Students that focus on mechanical design and mechatronics will acquire knowledge and skills in modern mechanical design, with an emphasis on the integration of mechanical functionality with electronics and automation. The hallmarks of this program are a sound theoretical knowledge, good engineering practice and practical design and experimentation. Dynamics, design and signal processing are the core constituents of this focus field, but students have the option to further add courses ranging from mathematics, computer science and electronics to the mechanics of materials and thermal sciences.

Thermal science and fluids:

Students in this focus field study the transfer of mass and energy. Core courses include partial differential equations, advanced fluid mechanics, heat transfer and computational methods. The emphasis here is on good theoretical knowledge, analysis and practical applications of thermodynamics and fluid dynamics. Students may also elect a number of courses pertaining to harnessing energy and industrial processes.

Programme Structure

The Mechanical Engineering MSc is a 2 year full-time graduate degree. The degree is taken over four semesters, two semester in a year. Students take 30 ECTS each semester. All students are required to complete a 32 ECTS Integrated Project Course, composed of a 18 ECTS design project, one 6 ECTS and two 4 ECTS supporting courses.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score: 6

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

    Take IELTS test
  • Minimum required score: 550

    The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

  • Minimum required score: 79

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).

Academic Requirements

  • Admission requirements are a BSc degree in engineering. Minimum requirements in applied sciences (i.e. mathematics, physics) and in basic subjects fundamental to Mechanical Engineering (i.e. mechanics, design, thermal fluids) have to be fulfilled.
