The MSc Mechanical Engineering and Design is a unique and particularly contemporary course of study, that encompasses knowledge from all areas related to the Mechanical Engineer profession and includes modules that teach the latest industry developments and their application on real Engineering problems. Its aim is to equip students with the necessary technical skills and theoretical background for the development of Mechanical Engineering projects in the field of Construction or Energy.

At the same time, the programme provides students the opportunity to carry out their own research, under the supervision of experienced tutors, which can lead to publications in academic journals and participation in international conferences, or be used by collaborating companies during the design and construction of real projects.

The course can be completed in 1 year (full-time October start), in 1,5 year (full-time February start) or in 2 years (part-time). It includes six 20-credit modules and a diploma thesis of 60 credits. The modules are delivered on a semester basis.

Students specialise on contemporary applications of the Mechanical Engineering science, such as designing and improving high performance engines, failure analysis and prevention, environmental risk assessment, energy conservation and management, heating, cooling and air-conditioning systems, project management strategies and advanced mechanical design of prototypes.

A significant advantage of this course is that as part of their final thesis, students work at a high research level and – under the supervision of experienced academics – produce projects that can lead to publication in international conferences.


Graduates may apply for registration with a UK professional body (e.g. IMECHE – Institution for Mechanical Engineers) or to apply for the professional recognition of their degree in Greece.
