The MSc in Propulsion and Engine Systems Engineering is a broad based 1 year MSc programme, that provides you the opportunity to specialise in the engineering sciences that are key to the design, monitoring and analysis of propulsion and engine systems. You will do compulsory modules on gas turbine, internal combustion, electrical and hybrid engines for a range of transport applications. You will be able to further specialise by selecting optional modules in related technologies including condition monitoring, materials, engine tribology, noise control, environmental aspects, batteries, fuel cells and spacecraft propulsion. After completing the taught section (8 modules) you will complete the MSc programme through an individual project. Projects will be available in a wide range of topics including engine materials, combustion modelling, electrical motors, engine noise control and engine tribology.
The MSc in Propulsion and Engine Systems Engineering is part of the MSc Advanced Engineering Sciences Programme.

Programme structure

This programme aims to provide science and engineering graduates from diverse backgrounds with an academically challenging exposure to current Advanced Mechanical Engineering Science.

The aims of the programme are to:

• Enable you to acquire advanced knowledge and practical skills needed for a professional career in your chosen specialist theme and to provide you with specialist knowledge and skills relevant to that theme.
• Provide you with a sound understanding of the fundamental principles, operation requirements, design criteria and engineering applications in advanced mechanical engineering science
• Enhance your transferable skills, including critical analysis, problem solving, project management, decision making, leadership, and communication by oral, visual and/or written means.
• Equip you with specialist knowledge, scientific and technical expertise and research skills for further research in advanced mechanical engineering science.

The full-time MSc programme lasts for 12 months. The first 8 months are normally spent mainly on the taught component, with lectures divided into two 12-week periods (Semesters 1 and 2), and with exams at the end of each semester. The final 4 months are spent full-time on a research project, for which some preparation is done in Semester 2.
