Master Mechanical Engineering Design (Full-time, Part-time) - Máster en Diseño de Ingeniería Mecánica
If you have ambitions of being a Chartered Engineer (CEng) then this course will provide you with the ideal start. In order to achieve CEng status it is recognised that most Chartered Engineers will hold an appropriate masters degree like this one.
Because the course is delivered in intensive blocks, you won’t find yourself having to take regular time out of your busy working week to juggle study and your career; instead you will be able to devote all of your attention to your studies for around a week at a time. Not only does this help you to study more effectively, it also means less disruption for your employer.
A good IEng accredited honours degree or academic qualifications that have been approved at IEng level through the IED Education and Training Committee or equivalent
The aim of this course is to develop comprehensive knowledge and understanding of a wide range of
materials, manufacturing processes and their limitations.
Applied Maths for Designers (20 Credits)
The aim of this unit is to develop the knowledge and understanding of mathematical principles necessary to underpin education in engineering design. You will apply mathematical and computer-based models for solving problems in engineering design, and the ability to assess the limitations of particular cases.
Materials Failure & Prevention (20 Credits)
You will develop the knowledge and critical understanding of the range of the more common failures that materials encounter in service or during processing. This unit will provide an understanding of the underlying reasons and mechanisms of materials failures in order to design against and diagnose failure in engineering materials.
Research Methods (20 Credits)
You will develop key research skills in areas such as literature reviews; critical analysis of research findings, project proposals, planning, experiment design and analysis, and dissemination. This unit will adequately prepare you for writing a project proposal and for conducting and disseminating the Masters project.
Extended Masters Project (120 Credits)
The unit aims to develop an understanding of the characteristics and implications inherent in the solution of a complex, real-world problem. The Extended Project is the mechanism through which you will demonstrate your ability to perform at masters level by conducting a substantial piece of independent research in an area related to your current employment.
This will allow you to: construct complex simulation environments, consider literature in detail, conduct substantial empirical/theoretical research and comprehensive analysis; engage with research at the forefront of the appropriate discipline that demonstrates originality in the application of knowledge and analysis of findings.
