Welcome to MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering
This programme aims to provide the opportunity for graduates to join the industry with a broad understanding of mechanical engineering, power generation, and the associated control and economics that make such technologies successful.
Our Master's in Advanced Mechanical Engineering has been developed around the key strands of energy conversion, system design, system control, and sustainability. Graduates have the chance to develop the necessary knowledge and skills required to work on the engineering challenges of the 21st Century.
You can be part of a thriving hub of research and development within the School of Engineering, where you will have the chance to work alongside academics on projects and gain exposure to industrial partners.
How You Study
The course is a taught postgraduate programme consisting of 180 credits. The programme is delivered on both a full-time (1-year) and part-time (2-year) basis. The delivery of the modules for this MSc programme run over a full academic year in a block structure. Students will complete a series of taught modules comprising 120 credits of study and an engineering-based project making up the remaining 60 credits.
While on the programme, students will have the opportunity to select from three clearly defined pathways. These pathways aim to equip students with the knowledge and skills required to address the engineering challenges of the 21st Century. In addition to the standard MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering route, students can select pathways which lead to the awards of MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering with Sustainable Energy or MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering with Intelligent Systems.
Postgraduate level study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the materials covered in lectures and seminars. As a general guide, for every hour in class, students are expected to spend at least two to three hours in independent study.

How you are assessed
The assessment strategy adopted within the programme reflects the programme's emphasis on applied practice and the development of a range of skills.
Assessment methods will vary from module to module, and this will include both coursework and examinations. Students will also be expected to complete a major research project following the taught modules.
The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to you promptly - usually within 15 working days after the submission date.
Please note that this programme is now closed for international applications for September 2023 entry.
Entry Requirements 2023-24
2:2 Honours degree (UK or equivalent) in Mechanical Engineering or related disciplines, particularly those who have demonstrated relevant industrial working experience. The related disciplines could be a degree in Physics, Mechatronics, Robotics, Manufacturing, Materials, Industrial, or Automation Engineering etc. Please contact the programme leader for more for information.
If you have studied outside of the UK, and are unsure whether your qualification meets the above requirements, please visit our country pages https://www.lincoln.ac.uk/home/studywithus/internationalstudents/entryrequirementsandyourcountry/ for information on equivalent qualifications.
If you are an overseas student, you may require an ATAS (Academic Technology Approval Scheme) certificate in order to enrol on this course.
Overseas students will be required to demonstrate English language proficiency equivalent to IELTS 6.0 overall, with a minimum of 5.5 in each element. For information regarding other English language qualifications we accept, please visit the English Requirements page https://www.lincoln.ac.uk/home/studywithus/internationalstudents/englishlanguagerequirementsandsupport/englishlanguagerequirements/.
If you do not meet the above IELTS requirements, you may be able to take part in one of our Pre-session English and Academic Study Skills courses.
These specialist courses are designed to help students meet the English language requirements for their intended programme of study.
Fees and Funding
For eligible students, there are more ways than ever before to fund your postgraduate study, whether you want to do a taught or research course. For those wishing to undertake a Master's course, UK students can apply for a loan as a contribution towards the course and living costs. Loans are also available to those who wish to undertake doctoral study. The University offers a number of scholarships and funded studentships for those interested in postgraduate study. Learn how Master's and PhD loans, scholarships, and studentships can help you fund your studies on our Postgraduate Fees and Funding pages.
Programme-Specific Additional Costs
For each course you may find that there are additional costs. These may be with regard to the specific clothing, materials or equipment required. Some courses provide opportunities for you to undertake field work or field trips. Where these are compulsory, the cost for travel and accommodation will be covered by the University and so is included in your fee. Where these are optional, you will normally be required to pay your own transport, accommodation and general living costs.
With regards to text books, the University provides students who enrol with a comprehensive reading list and you will find that our extensive library holds either material or virtual versions of the core texts that you are required to read. However, you may prefer to purchase some of these for yourself and you will be responsible for this cost.
Highly skilled engineers are in demand in the UK and overseas. Through teaching methods and high levels of employer collaboration, this programme aims to prepare graduates for careers in the power, energy, and mechanical engineering industries.
