We're one of the largest and most respected mechanical engineering departments in the UK. In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise we came second in the league table of departments in our field.
About the course
1 year full time
This degree programme covers the fundamental areas of mechanical engineering at an advanced level. Subject areas include:
* Fatigue and fracture
* Experimental stress analysis
* Structural dynamics
* Fluid mechanics
This highly flexible course offers a wide selection of optional modules, allowing you to tailor your study to reflect your interests.
Our courses are designed to meet the needs of industry. Youll gain practical experience of research, including training in research methods and management that will prepare you for a career in industry.
Recent graduates have gone on to work for Arup, the Royal Navy and Balfour Beatty. Alternatively, our courses are ideal preparation for further research at PhD level.
"I am working on Detached Eddy Simulation of aerodynamic flows in CFD. I think my MSc brought me to a stage where I had a plethora of options to excel in my profession. After gaining my MSc degree with distinction, I continued on to a PhD.
I have enjoyed the unique experience of Sheffield as a beautiful, safe and friendly city, as well as its academic excellence. I have been using the world-class computational facilities along with extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff. Overall, it has been an experience I shall always cherish." - Naveed Durrani, Graduate
Our MSc (Research) programmes include a substantial research project that is at least 50 per cent larger than standard MSc programmes. It gives you the opportunity to address in depth a challenging and relevant topic.
We offer a wide selection of advanced-level taught modules that will support your project topic and suit your individual needs. You'll have regular contact with at least two academics: your personal tutor and project supervisor.
We have recently finished refurbishing a large section of our laboratory space and have invested over £350,000 in equipment for our teaching labs and mechanical engineering workshop, including new fatigue testing facilities and a 3D printer.
The department also has its own computer suite, where students can access the Universitys computing facilities through dedicated Linux PCs.
Good Honours degree or equivalent, in Mechanical Engineering or related area, or appropriate science subject. Applicants with other qualifications or appropriate professional experience will also be considered.
