Course description

The Thermal Power and Fluid Engineering MSc is a highly successful course which has been offered here for almost forty years. The aim of this postgraduate course is to train and educate thermofluid engineers to enable them to meet present and future demands of the industry and to equip them with the necessary skills to engage in employment or further research.

The course is suitable for engineering/science graduates and professionals who not only wish to enhance their expertise in thermofluids but also to develop their competence in the use of state-of-the-art analytical, computational and experimental methods; advanced methods which are specifically designed for the analysis of heat and fluid flow in both industrial and research applications.

The objectives of this course are to produce postgraduate specialists with:

  • advanced understanding of heat and fluid flow processes and their role in modern methods of power generation
  • in-depth understanding of numerical and experimental techniques in heat and fluid flow

Teaching on the course is delivered by academics from our world-leading research group in the field of turbulence modelling and heat transfer.

Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD), the University of Manchester's new £400m purpose built home for engineering and material science , is nearing completion. The physical move to the new development is scheduled to take place between January 2021 and December 2021. Whilst it is anticipated that access to equipment, or work on projects for which such access is required may be limited during the period of the move, plans are underway to ensure that any disruption caused is minimised, a wide selection of dissertation projects will continue to be available, and excellent student experience remains pivotal. If you have any questions about how the move may affect you, please contact pg-mace@manchester.ac.uk .

Open days

The next open day will take place on Wednesday 6th November 2019. Further details will be published nearer the time but to register your interest please visit  The University of Manchester website.
