OVERVIEW

This programme is aimed at high calibre and ambitious Mechanical Engineering graduates who wish to gain expertise in systematically developing complex, multidisciplinary engineering design.

You will learn:

How to design products requiring embedded intelligence and comprehensive engineering analysis
How to use six CAE software packages

Why a program in Engineering Design ?

Engineering Design is the application of engineering principles, the experience of making, and use of mathematical models and analysis. The design and production of complex engineering products often require the use of embedded intelligence and detailed engineering analysis involving mechanical, electronic and control functions. Advanced theoretical knowledge and a wide range of computer driven tools, methods and methodologies are essential for this process.

Thus there is a need for an integrated course where advanced theory, human factors and creativity tools essential to successful product development are taught, training in software, research and/or application is provided and experience in the application of these knowledge and skill components in an integrating real life group project is given. This course has been developed to fulfil this need.

The course is constituted with the following five items:

1) A preparation module called 'Engineering Design in Perspective' (Module 1), delivered in a block fashion during the first two weeks. The module provides an appropriate base level and fulfils the requirements for the group project module.
2) Six other taught modules, each worth 15 credits totalling 90 credits:
Microcontrollers and Digital Control (Module 2)
Advanced Computer Aided Engineering (Module 3)
Structural Design and FEA (Module 4)
Design of Mechatronic Systems (Module 6)
Creative Design and Human Factors (Module 7)
Design of Manufacturing Systems and Economics (Module 8)
3) Design Experience (Module 5), a group project module linked to industry worth 30 credits
4) A dissertation, (Module 9) worth 60 credits
5) Work in a purpose equipped Design Studio with various experiential learning facilities including computers for the exclusive use of the MSc Advanced Engineering Design students
