Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering


Emirates Aviation University and Coventry University UK are offering you the chance to study towards a part-time Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering degree. The programme presents an overview of the techniques of modern mechanical engineering themes, presenting examples of use from a wide range of disciplines and industries applicable to the gulf region. Those include : Solar Thermal Energy, Refrigeration and Air-condition, Advanced Materials and Processes, Computer Aided Engineering with Finite Element Analysis, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Engineering Analysis and Simulation, Advanced Structural Analysis and Concepts, and Stress and Dynamics. The programme is taught on a part-time basis, in five day blocks per module, held every two months. Modules are delivered by a specialist team of academics drawn from EAU’s pool of international visiting faculties flying from across the globe.

The following qualification is also available as an exit award:

  • Postgraduate Diploma in Mechanical Engineering

Obtain a PgDip in Mechanical Engineering by completing 8 modules of the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering programme.

Why enrol on this programme?

The Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering will enable you to develop your understanding and analytical skills in various mechanical engineering related topics. It provides advanced postgraduate education in the theory and practice of the specialisation. It includes a broad range of mechanical engineering topics designed to suit the requirements of the region.

The programme’s general aims are:

  • To develop, learn and apply new theories, concepts and methods in new and challenging situations.
  • To develop extensive knowledge and understanding of a wide range of engineering materials, manufacturing processes, systems and components in unfamiliar scenarios.
  • To apply mathematical and computer-based models for solving problems in untried areas and environments.
  • To comprehensively understand the design processes and to generate innovative designs for products, systems, components or processes.
  • To analyse and assess commercial risks, management and business practices, associated with the introduction in new situations and environments.
  • To analyse developing technologies and analytical techniques related to Mechanical Engineering technology and their limitations.


  • This degree has been accredited by the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council. Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC).  An accredited degree will provide you with some or all of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills for eventual registration as an Incorporated (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng).  Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords.

Career Prospects

A wide range of potential careers will be open to you on graduation including the opportunity to work as a mechanical engineer in energy, oil and aerospace industries. You will learn to manage the process of industrial development which is essential to assure future commercial success. Mechanical engineers are employed in all sectors of industrial operation and, in addition, their analytical and management skills are keenly sought in a wider commercial context. 


Eighteen months, part time.

Mode of delivery

The programme is delivered on a part-time basis, in five day blocks per module, held every two months. Modules span the weekend to facilitate minimum disruption for participants in full time employment.
