" It’s a great feeling to see something develop from the virtual into reality – it’s a fascinating process."

We use industry-standard software including Ansys and SOLIDWORKS which allows us to design real simulations.

I chose Manchester Metropolitan because of the facilities, the workshops, the labs and the lecturers. The access to tutors at this University is great and has definitely enhanced my learning. The University works closely with major companies like Rolls-Royce and Bosch. Some Masters students are working on live projects with Bentley.

What I like most about the course is coming into the workshop, gathering data, looking at progress on my project and seeing where I’ll be taking it to next.

My future aspirations are to work in the automotive field, at the cutting edge of engineering.

I’ve had a great time at Manchester Metropolitan and my advice to anyone considering a Masters in Engineering is to just go for it!

“Manchester Met offers many resources to help you get the most from your degree."

I have travelled to conferences and taken courses to improve my IT, writing and leadership skills.

At the start of my degree, I was assigned a supervisor and together we developed a long-term research plan. My supervisor is very supportive and we meet to discuss my work regularly. All the teaching staff are very approachable, even if they are not directly connected to your project. Make sure you plan your work and your time well, and remember that staff and resources are available to help you if you are struggling.
