Have you ever wanted to invent something mechanical, prevent environmental damage to a building from floods, fire, explosions, landslides and other natural disasters, understand risks and reliability across buildings, renewables, and other areas? Do you want to improve quality of life across environmental remediation, farming, smart grid, green technology, food production, housing, transportation, safety, security, healthcare and water? Do you find it fascinating to try to make things work from what you have available? There will be plenty of major challenges to get involved with in the coming years crossing over into Nano technologies, advanced materials, electronic printing, grapheme technologies, wearable's, 3d printing, renewables and recycling and biotechnologies. Technology now means that you can design and engineer from anywhere in the world, including your home. Advanced Mechanical Engineering looks at computational mechanics, response to materials and reliability engineering. The Victorians set up some of the most advanced mechanical engineering of our times and in many ways they were the biggest mechanical engineering innovators ever.
This programme specialises in mechanical engineering so you are becoming proficient in designing anything that has background moving parts to allow it to work such as engines, motor driven devices and the effects of nature on mechanical objects and their ability to perform. You also look at how material composition can alter performance issues and provide new innovative methods to solve challenges in every day life and natural and other risks to machinery in all situations. Your employment options are very varied, you may want to work within consumer goods to design and improve everyday objects like white goods, or you may like to be involved in very large scale hydro electric and power driving machinery in energy , manufacturing or large scale developments, or you may decide to get involved in innovation and enterprise yourself.

This course is new for 2018
Our course will help you take your career forward in an innovative and developing area of engineering. It balances advanced theory with technical skills so that you can learn to develop complete operational systems. Our course is suited to you if you have a background in electronic and electrical engineering, computer science or a related discipline.
During the course, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of how to research, design and develop systems. You’ll explore robotics engineering and software, autonomous systems technologies, processes and products throughout the industry value chain. Other areas you will cover include computational intelligence, machine learning and sensors.
Your studies will focus on tackling engineering challenges using whole-systems approaches. We’ll give you the tools to analyse and evaluate the impact of the resources, processes and products you choose in developing systems. You’ll consider stakeholder needs and factors such as technical, economic, environmental and social.
You’ll learn from academics in our Departments of Computer Science, Electronic & Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. Their international collaborations and research expertise feed into your learning experience.
You will work on individual and group projects using the same systems platforms as those used in industry. Our focus on practical learning makes sure you have the skills to design and build robotic platforms and autonomous systems.
You’ll graduate with the skills to innovate and deliver resource-efficient practices and solutions for robotic and autonomous systems. Your knowledge will prepare you for a career in the engineering sector or for further postgraduate study and research.
We also offer this course without a placement (3 semesters).
