Top 5 Cheapest PG Mechanical Engineering Degrees In The UK!




Since you loved our last blog on "The Top 5 Cheapest MBAs in the UK”, we’re back again. This time, however, we’ll be letting you know the Top 5 Cheapest Mechanical Engineering degrees in the UK.


Now, one thing we need to point out before we carry on. The 5 Mechanical Engineering degrees we talk about my not be cheapest by tuition fee alone.


We’ve factored in the cost of living and even the value for money from that particular degree.


We’ve also tried to include the most cost-effective degrees in London. We felt this was important because a lot of students out there want to be in London, no matter what!


Although the degree may not be the cheapest in the UK (London is an expensive place to live), it will be a cost-effective London based one.

1. De Montfort University

Mechanical Engineering MSc - £16,100 - One year full-time (with optional one-year placement available)


This course is very popular amongst Indian students. When I worked at DMU, this is one of the courses that would fill up FAST!


First, it's accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). This ensures that graduates leave with recognised and relevant skills for several industries. This includes automation, machine vision, automotive, consumer products and material processing.

Based in Leicester means that DMU is around 100 miles from London. Leicester is considered a smaller city but has everything a student needs to have a great time. Affordable accommodation, great food and it’s based in the city centre - perfect!

2. Coventry University

Advanced Mechanical Engineering MSc - £14,250 - One year full-time (with optional one-year placement available, +£4000)


This course seeks to produce postgraduates with versatility and a depth of understanding to deal with new and unusual challenges in mechanical engineering. As well as the necessary imagination and creativity to innovate.

Coventry University offers modern facilities in their £50 million Engineering and Computing building. Facilities include a:

  • Mercedes AMG Petronas wind tunnel

  • Composites lab

  • Metrology lab

  • Shaker rig

  • Flow lab

  • Engine test cell

  • Automotive workshop

  • Fatigue and tensile testing (Instron)

  • A full-size Harrier Jet

  • Three further simulators

  • Civil engineering specialist testing equipment

  • A range of Computerised Numeric Control (CNC) machinery

  • A laser workshop

  • And more

The city of Coventry is also cheap to live in. Super affordable accommodation and cheap living costs. A great ‘outside of London’ option for students looking to enhance their career in Mechanical Engineering.

3. Anglia Ruskin University

Mechanical Engineering MSc - £14,500 - One year full-time


The Faculty of Science & Engineering here is one of the largest of the four faculties at the University.


This course will equip you with transferrable skills, including IT and management as well as data analysis.

As a result, you’ll be very employable in the mechanical engineering industry. This gives graduates a choice of different careers available to them.


The facilities at Anglia Ruskin include a:

  • CAD/CAM centre,

  • Industrial-scale CNC milling machine,

  • CNC lathe, rapid prototyping machine,

  • Scanning electronic microscope,

  • Instron bi-axial fatigue-testing machine,

  • Tensile-testing machine,

  • Material-preparation facilities,

  • Welding, electronic testing and measuring equipment

  • And more

Anglia Ruskin isn’t too far from London. For those looking for a balance between London and cheap living costs, this might be the option for you.

4. University of Hertfordshire

Mechanical Engineering MSc - £13,950 - One year or 18 months full time

The University of Hertfordshire has a worldwide reputation for excellence in applied mechanical engineering.


This programme was developed to meet the growing need for postgraduate skills within the engineering industry. Along with the demand for professional development for graduate engineers.


The programme integrates mechanical engineering subjects with critical skills in management and research.


This approach will help to develop the critical thinking skills needed for future engineering managers. You will also become a technical specialist enabling graduates to analyse technical and management issues.

Hertfordshire is also VERY close to central London. It is slightly more expensive to live here than Anglia Ruskin. But for the convenience of getting into London, it’s worth it.

5. University of East London

Mechanical Engineering MSc - £13,920 - One year full-time (with optional one-year placement available)


Mechanical engineering - the mother of all engineering disciplines - is one of the most popular courses in the UK.

This MSc course is designed to meet the increasing demand for general engineering professionals with advanced technical skills in mechanical engineering.


This interactive programme will provide you with fundamental and advanced engineering knowledge with hands-on skills.

Professional engineers need such skills for solving technically complex issues with a multi-disciplinary and strategic approach.


Offering a placement year as well, the programme is designed using the Engineering Council’s attributes of Chartered Engineer.


This is ensuring the core skills required for a 21st-century competent engineer, as elaborated by the Engineering Council, are well-integrated into the programme’s curriculum.


For a London based university, the course fee is very affordable. UEL is also a very popular university for Indian students.
