Advanced Engineering Design MSc

Course Introduction

Overview

Our Advanced Engineering Design MSc degree is described as ?the doorway to industry?. It is for high-calibre, ambitious engineering or science graduates who wish to gain expertise in developing complex, multidisciplinary engineering design.

The focus of the course is to provide you with advanced theory and skills to give you the essential expert knowledge needed for a career as an advanced designer, a design team leader or a researcher in innovative engineering design working in a computer assisted environment.

You will learn how to design products requiring embedded intelligence and comprehensive engineering analysis, and will be taught by a team of highly regarded academics who will give you a thorough grounding in engineering design.

Throughout your postgraduate engineering degree, you?ll have access to well-equipped design studios and computers for your exclusive use, and will benefit from the latest computer aided engineering software packages.

The Design Experience project gives you experience of the whole design process in an industrial environment ? from initial concept to final design and manufacture, and presentations, seminars, discussions and guest speakers from industry make this a special learning experience.

Part of your course will also involve group projects, furthering your ability to work in a team. Recent group projects have included the design of electric vehicles, and the design of smart jigs and fixtures.

We run regular industry liaison events and this is your chance not only to showcase your innovative engineering design projects, but also network with key engineering and technology professionals.

Brunel?s Advanced Engineering Design MSc degree is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). This means your degree will put you on course to gain Chartered Engineer (CEng) status in the UK. It can be studied either full-time over one year, or part-time over two years.

Careers and your future

Our graduates have described the course as ?the doorway to industry?. They have progressed to careers within industries including aerospace, automotive, transport, the MoD, the government, and the manufacturing sector.

You will have the chance to get a CAD certificate for professional use of a CAD system awarded by PTC University.

On the course you?ll develop the advanced knowledge, skills and attitudes demanded by top engineering organisations such as Airbus, Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems, Volkswagen Group and BP; and by manufacturers such as Caterpillar and engineering consultancies such as Anderson Consulting.
