Master of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering

Departmental Special Regulations for the MSc Degree Programme in Mechanical Engineering

Preamble

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers MSc degree programmes by course work and research thesis (Dissertation). Subject to the General Regulations for Master’s and Doctor of Philosophy Degrees 40.0 and to General Regulations specific for Master’s Degree Programmes 41.0 the following Departmental Special regulations shall apply:

Entrance Requirements

Applicants for the MSc programme in Mechanical Engineering should have obtained a Bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering with at least GPA, on a 5-point scale) from a recognized university or institution of higher learning.

Programme Structure

The MSc degree programme in Mechanical Engineering shall be a modular based programme offered as coursework and Dissertation. The degree will be offered through full-time or part-time study.

The programme shall consist of course work and Dissertation/thesis extending over 4 semesters of full-time study or 6 semesters of part-time study.

The course work will extend over two semesters and shall consist of three Departmental common courses, one core course and four optional courses. Each stream in the second semester shall consist of four optional courses, where all of them can be chosen from the same stream or two of them from the same stream, and the other two from any of the streams/department/faculty.

The Departmental common courses will be taken in the first semester and the remaining courses will be taken in semesters one and two

The course work structure shall comprise of Departmental common courses, Stream core courses and Optional courses as follows:

Semester 1 (12 credits)

Two Departmental Common Courses (2 x 3 = 6 credits). One Common Course from other Departments (1 x 3 = 3 credits). One Stream Core Course (1 x 3 = 3 credits).

Semester 2 (12 credits)
