Course Summary

The 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. Brunel’s Advanced Engineering Design MSc degree is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). It can be studied either full-time over one year, or part-time over two years.

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.
