- The University of Glasgow has been delivering world-class engineering education and research since 1840. Mechanical Engineering is a core engineering discipline that has a long history in the University dating back to the 1760s with academic contributors such as James Watt.
- The School of Engineering has extensive contacts with industrial partners who contribute to several of their taught courses through active teaching, curriculum development, and panel discussion. Recent contributors in the area of mechanical engineering include Babcock, Howdens and Terex.
- Mechanical Engineering at Glasgow is ranked 9th in the UK (Complete University Guide 2020).
- This MSc is accredited in the “Further Learning” category accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). This means that a student with an accredited BEng undergraduate degree can take the accredited "Further Learning" MSc to top-up their academic qualifications in order to meet the full academic requirements for conferral of the title of Chartered Engineer. This is an alternative route to the 5-year undergraduate MEng route.
- This taught MSc/PgDip offers a wide exposure to the philosophy and practice of engineering design whilst simultaneously enabling the students to deepen their knowledge of certain engineering disciplines, which have largely been chosen on the basis of the research and design teaching strengths of the discipline. The choice includes Materials and Mechanics, Dynamics and Control, Desalination Technology and Thermal Science.
- The compulsory design part deals with innovation aspects of industrial and mechanical design and the integration of design methods and techniques. Not only is design taught in this way, but also practised in its research activities, both explicitly and implicitly. It is practised explicitly through research in, for instance rapid design and manufacture, and implicitly through the design of, for instance, heart assist devices, paraplegic assist devices and mountain bike components together with apparatus for experiments and for demonstration.
- You will broaden and/or deepen your knowledge of selected engineering disciplines, which have been chosen on the basis of our research strengths, including materials, vibration, control and desalination.
- The school has an Athena Swan Bronze Award, demonstrating the school's commitment to supporting women in scientific studies and careers, and to improving the working environment for all.
- This programme has a September and January intake for suitably qualified candidates.

About this university
Students travel from around the world to study at the university and its website has country-specific information available. The International Student Support Team is a dedicated advisory service to help students on a range of subjects including immigration, finding employment and dealing with financial matters. For those to whom English isnâ€™t a first language there is also English language courses available through the University Language Centre who also provide language support during the length of study. Student life is organised differently at Glasgow than many universities meaning there isnâ€™t a single student association but rather a number covering different areas. There are two separate studentâ€™s unions, dating from the times when one was for male students and the other for female, called the Glasgow University Union (GUU) and the Queen Margaret Union (QMU). There is also a Students Representative Council that is the legal body representing studentsâ€™ interests in the university and in wider terms. The two unions organise a number of social and cultural groups and events including providing facilities for debating, dining, socialising and meeting rooms. Sports are handled by the Glasgow University Sports Association (GUSA) that operates both sports clubs as well as fitness classes and drop in sessions.
