Our Engineering Design MSc programme enables you to work effectively in an engineering design role, whether that role concerns the design of products, processes or systems, at an overall or detail level.

A balance of theory and practice is applied to the solving of real engineering design problems. All projects meet the product design requirements of one of our many co-operating companies.

Core study areas include structural analysis, engineering management and business studies, computer aided engineering, product design and human factors, engineering design methods, sustainable product design, the innovation process and project management, sustainable development: the engineering context and a project.

Engineering Design MSc is designed to meet the challenges of the rapidly changing global market; the availability of well-designed products, processes and systems is the foundation of successful commercial enterprises. You will develop the technical and transferable skills highly sought after by industry or academic research.

The Wolfson School is engaged in a large portfolio of high quality research in many areas of core Mechanical Engineering aspects. We are ranked 3rd in the UK for overall quality of research in mechanical, manufacturing, aeronautical and chemical engineering in the latest Government Research Exercise (REF 2014). The School has also received a Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education, in recognition of the research being carried out.

We are one of the UK’s largest Engineering Schools and have an outstanding international research reputation which drives everything that we do. This cutting edge research feeds directly into the content of our programmes meaning you’ll be taught the latest developments by world leading experts.
