Additional Information

Everything you need to know about this course!

Our MSc Mechanical Engineering with Professional Practice offers the option of going on a placement, which can be paid or unpaid.  Placement students are valuable to employers and many of our placements are paid.  All applications are on a competitive basis and students secure positions through their own efforts. Some assistance in preparation for applying for placements will be provided, however the employer has the final say. The work undertaken by the student must be of an adequate standard in an area of work strongly related to the content of the MSc Mechanical Engineering with Professional Practice Programme and the appropriateness of any placement will be assessed and approved by a member of the academic team on an individual basis.  Your placement will enable you to boost your learning with hands on experience and apply your theoretical knowledge to real life work experience

Its aim is to help stop the spread of knowledge and skills that could be used in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their means of delivery. The ATAS is specifically designed to ensure that those applying for postgraduate study in certain sensitive subjects do not acquire knowledge that could potentially be used in WMD courses.
