Course Summary

This course will build on your broad engineering background, giving you a greater depth of knowledge and experience. You can study this course full-time over one year or part-time over two years, to suit your work and personal life. Theoretical lectures and seminars are reinforced by engineering examples and case studies and the use of our computer simulation tools and laboratories. We take a range of approaches to teaching and learning, including seminar and case study discussions, lectures and practical sessions, with a strong industry focus. This very specialist course ensures that you are given the attention you deserve from staff who are approachable and helpful with a wide range of specialist backgrounds in both research and consultancy.

Entry requirements

Students will normally hold a recognised first or second class honours degree from a UK university or international equivalent in a relevant subject area. We expect that they will have a knowledge of Engineering from almost any discipline (e.g. Mechanical, Electrical, Manufacturing) and are interested in developing their engineering skills in the area of modelling, control and sustainability.
