Entry Requirements

  • A good first undergraduate MEng degree or MSc in a relevant subject from a UK university, or a recognised equivalent from an overseas institution.
  • A minimum IELTS score of 6.5.


The Department of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics has strong expertise in the area of Fluids Engineering and with its multidisciplinary roles has made major impact on engineering systems on land, sea, in the air and in outer space; from nano-scale project like medical implants to large-scale projects like aero-space stations.

Among Some Research Areas:

  • Controllability of Saturating Crossflow Vortices
  • Influence of attachment line flow on form drag
  • Cavitation Erosion
  • Singing Propellers: Understanding the mechanisms and developing design
  • guidance
  • The development of a method to estimate ship-produced atmospheric CO2 emissions
  • Numerical Investigation of droplet impingement on non-flat surfaces
  • Simulation of Flight Dynamics of Bee-Shaped Objects
  • Modelling of Cavitation in Diesel Injector Nozzles
  • Profiling for optimal application of screw compressor rotors
  • Evaluation of multiphase flows at the suction of screw compressor
  • Instabilities and Soot Formation in High Pressure Explosion Flames
  • The optical characterisation of cavitation flow in diesel fuel injection equipment
  • Real time simulation system for floating offshore wind turbine
  • Numerical simulations on large ship motions under freak waves
