Masters degrees in Engineering Design equip postgraduates with the skills to effectively management and develop techniques for creating functional products, systems and processes across various industries.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research-based MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant engineering discipline.
These courses offer an interdisciplinary approach to learning, combining theory and methodologies from disciplines such as Communications Management, Business Studies, and Engineering.
Focus is given to innovative design, critical reflection on current practice, and the impact of creativity and efficient design across all sectors of industry. Depending on your interests, you may explore a range of techniques and approaches, from analysis of materials used in Engineering Design, to procedures in environmental monitoring.
Placements in industry are usually a key component, which will advance your knowledge of the global commercial environment, collaborative working and project management.
Expertise in this field can be applied to a range of industrial practices, from automotive and aircraft design, to production of consumer technology such as mobile and wearable technology, or engineering systems simulation.
