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.
