This programme enables students 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.
Compulsory Modules: - 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 - Project
Careers and further study
Engineering design related jobs in product, process and system design environments, providing project management and communication skills and direct technical input. Graduates may also study for an MPhil or PhD with the School.
