Program Description:

This programme has been designed to enable students to extend and enhance their skills in the development and application of mathematical and computational models used in the study of engineering systems to postgraduate level. You also have the opportunity to undertake in-depth studies in your chosen areas of interest. Graduates of this programme will be able to contribute effectively in a wide range of engineering environments, both industrial and research orientated.

You take a selection of taught modules (120 credits) and complete an individual project (60 credits). Compulsory modules include: modelling case studies in engineering; numerical methods and analysis with applications; advanced partial differential equations; continuum mechanics; computational fluid dynamics; methods in industrial research and development. If your first language is not English you will normally be required to complete a module in writing dissertations in science and engineering (10 credits).

You also select 20û30 credits of optional modules. These include automatic control; robotics; bioengineering; advanced materials and processes. The project enables you to apply the modelling and analytic skills that you have learnt to a specific engineering problem of interest. There is wide scope in the choice of project, and there may be opportunities for project work to be undertaken in collaboration with industry.
