awarded by The University of Northampton, UK
- Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE)
- Composed of compulsory and elective (designated) taught modules, together with an independent research Case Study and the MSc dissertation.
- The learning materials are available and students communicate with tutors on-line via the Northampton Integrated Learning Environment (NILE) which is the institutional virtual learning platform providing access to web based and web enhanced courses at the University of Northampton.
Introduction to the Course
The MSc Lift Engineering course aims to provide a detailed, academic study of lift engineering and related management issues, together with a higher level qualification for persons employed in lift engineering as well as in allied industries.
The course will benefit lift engineers and consultants as well as members of senior management in the lift industry. You will gain an in-depth understanding of advanced technical issues arising in lift design, maintenance and contract management. The course teaches the skills required in electrical and mechanical science, together with mathematics and other engineering areas associated with the lift industry.
Candidates are expected to demonstrate skills required in electrical and mechanical sciences, together with mathematics and other relevant science/ engineering areas associated with the lift industry.
For the MSc award students must accumulate 180 FHEQ level 7 credit points. The compulsory modules cover the fundamental areas that are essential to lift engineering, including the codes and standards to which lifts and their design must adhere. Option modules allow you to pursue your particular interests and specialise within the industry.
