  • Course description
    This MSc programme offers a set of excellent curricula in highly sought-after engineering and scientific subjects. Computational modelling has become an essential part of industrial product development and the manufacturing sector in particular has been experiencing a significant uptake of computational engineering technologies to increase its competitiveness in the global market. This programme is designed for engineering and science graduates, providing a wide exploration of these new and advanced technologies.

    Outline of programme

    The core teaching modules are: • Computational Fluid Dynamics and Applications (fluid dynamics, computational methods, flow applications, grid generation, commercial software) • Finite Element Analysis and Solid Mechanics (solid mechanics, variation principles, concept analysis, commercial software) • Advanced Dynamic Systems (single/multiple degree of freedom system, parametrically excited system, continuous system) • Advanced CAD (advanced surfacing, complex assemblies, configuration control, analysis tools, animation) • Research Methodology (ethics of research, protecting & exploiting research, project management, sources of information, practical computation) • Algorithms and computational mathematics (e.g. numerical algorithms, interpolation, approximation, integration, sampling and linear algebra). The elective modules are: • Statistical Pattern Analysis • Object-oriented Software Skills • Object-oriented Software Process • Project Management • Financial Control. Students need to take three elective modules and complete a major project for the MSc degree.


    All the modules in this programme are delivered with lectures and lab-based tutorials, which have a good balance between scientific methodologies and their performance in the context of broad industrial applications. Students will have sufficient practice with case studies and coursework. The teaching modules are assessed with a combination of coursework and examinations and a dissertation is required for the major project.

    Career opportunities

    Career progression in engineering, IT and service industries where computer-based technology is required. The course is strongly supported by industry and students are expected to undertake industrially based projects.
