Study at the forefront of ground-breaking innovation with world-leading researchers on our IMechE accredited postgraduate Mechanical Engineering course in Chelmsford.
Already have an ARU degree? You may be eligible for our Alumni Scholarship for students starting postgraduate courses.
We’ll equip you to think adventurously, overcome problems and be part of the process of enabling society to advance. You’ll test your practical skills in our industry-standard workshop.
You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of advanced design and analysis techniques, the use of modern materials and manufacturing technology. We’ll expand your knowledge in a wide range of mechanical engineering areas and related fields, giving you the scope to be creative and scientific in equal measure.
From September 2024, you have the option to gain vital experience with a choice of professional experience modules.
Our course will equip you with transferrable skills, including IT and management as well as data analysis. As a result you’ll be highly employable in the mechanical engineering marketplace, with a choice of different careers available to you.
Our facilities include a CAD/CAM centre, industrial-scale CNC milling machine, CNC lathe, rapid prototyping machine, scanning electronic microscope, Instron bi-axial fatigue-testing machine, tensile-testing machine, material-preparation facilities, welding equipment and electronic testing and measuring equipment such as oscilloscopes and signal generating and testing facilities.
Students completing an IMechE accredited degree are deemed to have met, part or all, of the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered or Incorporated Engineer and are in a strong position to move on to achieve professional engineering status after a period of initial professional development in industry. The MSc will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration.
It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme who do not also have an appropriately accredited Honours degree will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a Chartered Engineer with the Engineering Council; they will need to have their first qualification individually assessed through the Individual Case Procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.

Our Mechanical Engineering MSc is accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). Provided you meet certain conditions, upon graduation you'll be able to satisfy the educational base for CEng registration.
Our course will help you find your career in engineering, or give you an additional skills boost if you’re already working in the industry.
You may want to work directly in engineering and design or use this degree as a step towards a career in a related area, such as consultancy.
Graduation doesn’t have to be the end of your time with us. You might choose to embark on a postgraduate research programme, such as our Engineering and the Built Environment PhD. Take advantage of our Alumni Scholarship and save £400 on your fees.
