Brunel University London

Course Introduction

Integration of mechanical, electrical, electronic and control knowledge into a single product is challenging, and this course allows students to appreciate the complexity of modern product design and to develop their expertise. The programme aims to create the new generation of engineering designers who can combine knowledge from different areas and produce world class design. Engineering design is the application of engineering principles, the experience of making, and use of mathematical models and analysis. The design and production of complex engineering products often require the use of embedded intelligence and detailed engineering analysis involving mechanical, electronic and control functions. Advanced theoretical knowledge and a wide range of computer driven tools, methods and methodologies are essential for this process, and the course provides graduates with these essentials.

Course Modules

Core modules: sustainable design and manufacture; manufacturing systems design and economics; computer aided engineering 1; computer aided engineering 2; design experience; dissertation project. Optional modules (choose two from): microprocessors and embedded control; advanced manufacturing measurement; human factors in design; robotics and manufacturing automation; design of mechatronic systems.
