There are few machines and other mechanical systems which do not include rotating components. This course provides you with training in the area of complex machine system design, from concept to final product, and undertaking extensive monitoring of rotating machinery.

The MSc in Design of Rotating Machines is a high quality mechanical engineering course. The syllabus and teaching style has been shaped by feedback from industrial partners and former students for over thirty years. Industry has exciting opportunities for well-trained engineers capable of combining technical insight, design and analysis skills, and a practical problem-solving attitude. Typical class intakes include students from a wide range of nationalities and experience levels, from experienced practicing engineers (typically part-time students) to recent graduates.

Programme structure

The taught programme for the Design of Rotating Machines postgraduate course is generally delivered from October to March and comprises nine compulsory taught modules. The modules are delivered over one to two weeks of intensive delivery with the later part of the course being free from structured teaching to allow time for more independent learning and reflection.

Career opportunities

Graduates of the MSc in Design of Rotating Machines have found employment in the £30bn rotating machinery industries encompassing aerospace, automotive, engineering design, manufacturing, power generation, mechanical integrity and health monitoring, propulsion, and transmission engineering sectors. Part-time students progress their career path as a direct result of enhancing their technical competence and enrich their employer’s competitive advantage.

Employers of the graduates include: – Rolls-Royce plc – Alstom Power – Ford – Total -QinetiQ – JCBBMW – ProDrive – Siemens – Renault – Hyundai – Shell – French Air Force.

The depth and breadth of the course equips graduates with knowledge and skills to tackle one of the demanding challenge of securing Cranfield future energy resource. Graduates of the course can also be recruited in other upstream and downstream positions. Their knowledge can also be applied to petrochemical, process and power industries.
