How to apply:
- Select a College (for example Ustinov College)
- Read up on the School web pages about your preferred course

To be admitted to an MSc course, you need the equivalent of a UK Honours degree to at least a second upper class standard in an engineering or engineering-related subject. Sometimes, we can accept industrial or other experience if you have a different first degree. We have considerable experience of international qualifications, so if you are not sure, please do contact us.
All applications are carefully scrutinised. We'll acknowledge receipt of your application, and decisions are normally made within about three weeks. If you want to find out how your application is progressing, please do contact us.
- Make your application early on using the official online postgraduate application form
- Provide a full curriculum vitae (in English) and an English language transcript of the degree/diploma documentation. Supporting information can be sent after the online application.
- Offer evidence of proficiency in spoken and written English, usually by a TOEFL or IELTS certificate.
- Give the names and addresses of two referees
- Send a letter, normally from a bank, confirming that your course fees will be paid by you or your sponsor.
- The Colleges require appropriate financial guarantees before issuing formal acceptances.
At the successful end of any of these courses, you will:
Receive an MSc degree from a highly prestigious University and department
Be taught by staff who are active researchers in the field and who have wide industrial collaboration, so your knowledge is up to date
Be in a position to take up employment in your field
