About the course

Ask Brunel

Our Advanced Engineering Design MSc degree is described as ‘the doorway to industry’. It is for high-calibre, ambitious engineering or science graduates who wish to gain expertise in developing complex, multidisciplinary engineering design.

The focus of the course is to provide you with advanced theory and skills to give you the essential expert knowledge needed for a career as an advanced designer, a design team leader or a researcher in innovative engineering design working in a computer assisted environment.

You will learn how to design products requiring embedded intelligence and comprehensive engineering analysis, and will be taught by a team of highly regarded academics who will give you a thorough grounding in engineering design.

101.jpg The course was intense and connected the essential points between academic theories and industrial real-time applications. Every theory session had an appropriate hands-on session to support and validate the theories. All the course materials are advanced and industry-oriented. Group projects, individual projects, assignments and programming exercises kept us engaged.
I must say that the staff were very helpful and experienced. The Professors, other lecturers, supervisors and technicians helped us to achieve what we came here for.
I had the opportunity to work with the Placement and Careers Centre (PCC) as an employability representative (part-time job).
I did an industrial project with Subsea7 ONG Company and built a test rig for offshore splash zone installations. It was a wonderful experience and I learnt numerous concepts through this project. It was a combination of mechanical design, electrical connections, microprocessor programming and instrumentation. I was given the opportunity to work with specialized Orcaflex software. I built a steward platform with other requirements and testing equipment. It was very useful for my career and personal aspirations.
My final year dissertation was with Jones and Shipman Company based in Leicester. I performed a massive FEA on huge grinding machine and created a customized program for performing a multistage analysis on the machines through Abaqus. The program was written in Python and was an instant hit in the industry. My results were implemented and my paper was selected for Simulia International Conference. My dissertation received a Brunel Alumni prize for best dissertation award.
I got a job as a Design Engineer in a ground breaking power storage company and I am working in a core design team of the company developing new solutions. My Master’s degree sowed the seeds of engineering so deep that I am continuing my researches in computational methods and its applications. All design processes involve transforming conceptual models into design, detailing the design and manufacturing phases. Working through hand calculations, modeling, analysis, prototyping and detailed drawings are my day-to-day activities. Designing and devising a test rig to measure performance are also part of the work.
In summarising my time at Brunel, “To experience the best of engineering at a University named after the best engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Brunel is priceless!!
