Master of Engineering Studies in Mechanical Engineering

MEngSt (Mechanical Engineering)

The Master of Engineering Studies in Mechanical Engineering provides graduates with an in-depth understanding of this discipline, sometimes referred to as 'the engineering of making things happen'.

Mechanical engineers are improve systems that shape our modern society, while also possessing the abilities to develop innovative new technologies. Their knowledge is extremely relevant in a society that demands systems that are capable of efficiency, speed and safety.

Extend your present skills in analysis, design and problem solving – because the Master of Engineering Studies allows you to focus on specific aspects of your chosen specialisation, you'll be able to boost your already-valuable knowledge with an in-depth understanding of both theory and practice.
