You’ll then choose from optional modules on topics that suit your own interests and career intentions.

We put particular emphasis on computational methods and software packages in automotive engineering analysis, design and manufacture. Depending on the modules you choose, you could use Matlab, Abaqus finite element code, Fluent CFD, SolidWorks CAE and LabView (DAQ and control).

Specialist facilities

You’ll benefit from working in world-class specialist facilities for different aspects of automotive engineering. These include a brake test area and measurement lab, as well as the latest industry-standard software for computational fluid dynamics and finite element modelling of systems and materials. ADAMS software is also available for suspension simulation.

High-level CNC and wire EDM facilities are available in the Faculty workshop, and we have cutting-edge tribology facilities to study wear on engine parts. There’s even a ‘stirred bomb’ for characterising fuel ignition and advanced engines with optical access. If you get involved with Formula Student race car, you’ll also use our dedicated car build area including computerised engine test bays.

This programme is also available to study part-time over 24 months.

Accreditation

This course is accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.

Structural engineers help to make, shape and maintain the built environment, from buildings and bridges to water supply systems, power plans and flood defences. Read more

Structural engineers help to make, shape and maintain the built environment, from buildings and bridges to water supply systems, power plans and flood defences. They are professionals who enjoy innovation, challenges, opportunities, responsibility and excitement in a varied and very satisfying career. As a profession, structural engineering provides a tremendous opportunity to make a real difference to peoples' lives and their environment.

This programme will equip you with the advanced knowledge and skills to succeed in this challenging industry. You’ll build your knowledge of a range of core topics such as concrete and steel design, structural analysis, design optimisation and how structures are designed and managed in earthquake zones. You’ll also develop your research skills and focus on a specific topic when you complete your own research project.

Taught by leading academics and practitioners, you’ll prepare to face some of the major challenges of the 21st century.

This programme has close links with local and regional industry as well as the Yorkshire branch of the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) – and you’ll benefit from the expertise of our Institute for Resilient Infrastructure and the active research groups across the Faculty of Engineering.

You’ll also benefit from using our specialist facilities, such as bench-top testing facilities to look at the fundamental behaviour of material soils and testing rigs for full-scale structures. We have all the specialist software you’ll need for your programme, and you’ll have access to a dedicated study suite for Masters students.

This course provides consultants, operators, regulators and managers with the professional skills and training to contribute to the provision of environmentally sound and economically sustainable systems in the fields of clean water supply, wastewater treatment, and the management of solid waste, including wastes from the oil industry.

It is intended for those who find themselves in management positions with little experience of the techniques necessary to manage the range of projects for which they have responsibilities, or people with a background in management who feel they lack up-to-date technical knowledge in the rapidly changing field of environmental engineering.

You’ll build your knowledge of key issues such as water resource, solid waste or health management. Taught by experts in a research-intensive environment, you’ll gain an insight into the latest developments in this exciting field and prepare to meet the challenges they bring.

You’ll study a broad programme informed by an employers’ group and our Industrial Advisory Board, ensuring that we equip you with the skills you need in the modern engineering industry.

You’ll also benefit from using our specialist facilities, such as our public health labs with separate areas for solid waste, water and wastewater, and a class II microbiology lab and clean room. We have all the specialist software you’ll need for your programme, and you’ll have access to a dedicated study suite for Masters students.
