Course Summary

This course is for those who have a background in engineering and mathematics and you're looking to apply your skills more creatively, our master's is an excellent choice for you.

Our course brings together both the practical and creative aspects of designing new products and services. You'll learn about how creative techniques, analytical skills and engineering principles are used to solve design challenges. Looking beyond the classroom, you'll explore how design impacts all sectors of industry and how it overlaps with engineering.

Project work allows you to use technical skills and your initiative to design, test and build working products. Many of our students choose to develop products or services that solve real environmental, social or economic problems.

Learn from experts in the field

You’ll learn from academics with professional, teaching and research expertise in our Department of Mechanical Engineering. Their industrial collaborations and research in product design and manufacturing feed into your teaching and learning experience.

Use specialist facilities

You’ll have access to teaching and research laboratories that support a range of activities including advanced 3D printing, design and CAD labs.

Start your future here

Our graduates have gone on to work with design consultancies in the UK and overseas. Some of our graduates have secured jobs at DNV GL (formerly Garrad Hassan), ABB Research and Dyson. We also encourage our best performing MSc students to continue their studies with us on our PhD programme.

Modules

This is semester 2 module. This module aims: to appreciate the importance of materials in engineering design; to review the broad spectrum of engineering materials in terms of properties such as strength, stiffness, toughness, thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, embodied energy and CO2 footprint; to characterise and compare the properties of these materials; to present case studies which examine the selection and application of materials in engineering design applications.
