Taught Masters Courses

Postgraduate Study is an integral part of the teaching activities that take place in the Department of Engineering with over 100 students studying on one of our taught masters courses each year. Our postgraduate students come from a wide range of backgrounds, with students from the Africa, The Americas, Asia, Europe and, of course, the UK.

The Department of Engineering offers an extensive range of postgraduate study courses including traditional Master of Science (MSc) courses, Master of Research (MRes) courses and a Master in Engineering Management (MEM) course. Full-time and part-time campus-based study is available in a variety of disciplines. Part-time courses, however, are only available to Home/EU students owing to visa restrictions. Most of our courses are available to be taken with a Year in Industry.

The Study With Us website offers comprehensive details on the taught masters courses that are offered by the Department of Engineering, and provides information on the experience that students can expect when studying at the University of Leicester.

Master of Science (MSc) programmes:

A two year part-time, distance-learning course is also available:

Master of Research (MRes) programme:

A Master of Research (MRes) course is available in the Department of Engineering. This one-year degree will allow you to explore an area of Engineering research which you have previously explored at undergraduate level, through an in-depth research project.

Master in Engineering Management:

A new offering for Autumn 2016, the Master of Engineering Management (MEM) is a new qualification designed for those who are looking to add practical business and leadership skills to their existing technical knowledge for a management career in an engineering or technological organisation. If you see yourself as an engineering leader of the future, then this is the course for you.
