Introduction:

UK is one of the best places to learn engineering given its rich and long history. There are many universities in UK which offer top-quality degrees in mechanical engineering. Here is a list of five such universities where you can pursue master’s in mechanical engineering (order does not denote ranking).

Imperial College London:

Course offered: MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering

The Imperial College London is the highest ranked university in UK in 2019. The Advanced Mechanical engineering course is 50% theoretical and 50% research. In the research part of the course, the students choose a research project in any subject related to the course and work on it. The department of Mechanical engineering at the university houses several research facilities for the students. These facilities can be categorised under three groups:

University of Bristol:

Course offered: MScR in Mechanical Engineering

Being one of the top 10 UK university, the University of Bristol is associated with about 13 Nobel laureates. It is also the second most preferred university by employers recruiting graduates straight out of college, according to the High Fliers Research. The research at the Department of Mechanical Engineering can be categorised into the following areas:

University of Leeds:

Course offered – MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering

The Advanced Mechanical engineering course at University of Leeds focusses on using computational methods to solve industry relevant problems. The programme covers a wide range of subjects across mechanical engineering and allows the students to choose their specialisation in any of the subjects like robotics, automotive, aerospace etc. The course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). In terms of research, the University of Leeds is ranked among the top 10 university for research power in UK. Some of the research institutes at the university that are used for researching in the field of mechanical engineering are:

Cranfield University:

Course offered – Advanced Mechanical Engineering

Cranfield is ranked by QS World University rankings 2019 as the 5th best university in the UK for mechanical, aeronautical and manufacturing engineering. The Mechanical engineering programme largely focusses on energy sector. The course is largely relevant to the industry in context and is delivered such that the learners use their knowledge to evaluate and manage industry relevant issues. The coursework is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). The Research Excellence Framework (REF) rated that 81% of research at Cranfield University was internationally excellent. The university has several research centres and facilities including but not limited to:

University of Sheffield:
