To maintain their competitiveness on a global business platform, it is essential for modern-day engineering companies to be able to develop new products quickly and functionally. State-of-the-art, computer-aided engineering software and web-based CAD/CAM systems make it more efficient to design and test a new product on computers without committing any physical resources.
If you would like to learn more about this evolving professional discipline, Kingston's Advanced Product Design Engineering MSc is ideal. It covers the latest computing technology at all stages of the design process in an engineering environment. You gain an insight into the entire Product Life Cycle (PLC), from design to manufacture, and the potential constraints in that process, including management/business issues.
Throughout the course, academic teaching is complemented by lectures from industry experts, keeping you up to date with the latest developments. There will also be plenty of opportunities to attend relevant technical seminars, both within and outside the University, further enhancing your learning experience.
