Key Facts
  • Mechanical design engineers with the skills this course offers are essential to meeting today's challenges. Overseas competition and adverse economic and productivity differences across the global markets creates significant competitive pressures in the engineering and manufacturing sectors.
  • The primary strategies for meeting these challenges call for innovation in design and manufacturing processes that can be directly incorporated into products, requiring a new generation of mechanical design engineers, skilled in the use of advanced computer modelling and simulation techniques.
  • The MSc Mechanical Engineering course has been designed to reflect the increasing industrial use of complex analytical tools such as Adams Mechanisms, Finite Element Analysis and Solid Modelling techniques.
