Course Summary

This course focuses on the latest technology in modern CAD/CAM/CAE/PLM applications to enable students to acquire knowledge and understanding of rapid design and manufacture of a new product from a single computer terminal, without the need for lengthy prototype and test cycles. Implementing this technology is essential in today's global marketplace, where survival relies on being first to market. The MSc will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration. This programme is structured to provide you with the latest developments in this still-evolving discipline of digital product development. It focuses on providing you with hands-on experience of the latest computing applications throughout the entire product development cycle, from simple 3D modeling techniques to an extended capability of 3D laser scanning to generate complex Class A surfaces. Teaching in many technical modules is backed up by appropriate hands-on experience and workshops, which can be transferred directly to your working environment. Academic teaching is complemented by visits from industry experts. You will also have plenty of opportunities to attend relevant technical seminars, both within and outside the University. You can tailor your course to enhance your career ambitions through your module choices and the project dissertation gives you the opportunity to choose a field of study in which to establish yourself as a specialist.
