Program Description

MSc Mechanical Engineering

Oxford Brookes University, Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment

MSc in Advanced Engineering Design

The main aim of the MSc in Advanced Engineering Design is to introduce you to research, development and practice in advanced engineering design and to equip you for professional practice at senior positions of responsibility.

Great engineering design turns great ideas into great products. If this is your aim, then the MSc in Advanced Engineering Design will give you the skills you need to achieve it. Developing the skills to take complex products all the way from idea to fully-validated designs, you will use the most advanced CAD packages and learn the techniques required to analyse your work, testing designs in virtual reality to see how they perform and how reliable they are.

Teaching is based in our purpose-designed engineering building on the Wheatley Campus.

Teaching learning and assessment

Teaching methods vary according to the subject, but typically include lectures and seminars to provide a sound theoretical base, and practical work designed to demonstrate important aspects of theory or systems operation. Assessed coursework exercises, essays, presentations and laboratory exercises form the basis for continuous assessment.

Assessment methods include examination and coursework, reflecting the development of academic content from the more practical aspects to the more conceptual.

Teaching staff are drawn primarily from the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mathematical Sciences. Visiting speakers from business and industry provide further input.

Career prospects

Our graduates enjoy the very best employment opportunities, with hundreds of engineering students having gone onto successful careers in their chosen industry.
