Leading engineers are using cutting-edge computational design techniques to transform our world. The latest simulation software can give accurate insights into how innovative design ideas will work in practice. Effective modelling is vital in many industries including the automotive, aerospace and bioengineering sectors. We offer an exciting postgraduate degree in Computational Engineering Design covering the latest techniques and methods, taught by lecturers who are also active researchers working with industry.

Introducing your degree

This course is for graduates of engineering, mathematics or physical science who want to be challenged academically, gain exposure to modern issues in advanced mechanical engineering science and specialise in computational engineering and design. We will teach you the latest techniques, methods and simulation software. This will give you accurate insights into how innovative design ideas will work in practice and how to apply them effectively with industry.


Computational modelling is crucial for many industries, from bioengineering to automotive and aerospace. You will learn to use various software tools to assess the feasibility of designs. We also teach you to use advanced numerical methods and apply design search and optimisation principles to solve design problems.

The year will be divided into two semesters. Each semester, you will study core modules as well as choosing specialist modules that interest you, from Aircraft Structural Design to Engineering Design with Management.

The last four months will centre on research. You will have the chance to complete a significant research project under the guidance of our prestigious Computational Engineering and Design Research Groupwho have strong links with academia and industry.

The course will equip you with the specialist knowledge and practical skills for a professional career or further research in computational engineering design.
