New Masters-Level courses in Engineering and Design Masters for 2014

New courses have been developed in consultation with industry, employers and engineering professionals and informed by the requirements of accrediting engineering institutions to ensure that content maps onto skills needed by the engineering professions
16 April 2014

The School of Engineering has recently validated an innovative portfolio of five new Engineering Masters courses.

Marouan Nazha (Head of Department for Engineering and Design) says, "We have a strong research tradition covering Telecommunications, Instrumentation, Robotics, Non-Destructive Testing, Energy and Surface Engineering.  The new Masters make best use of this tradition and the associated staff expertise."

Five new courses:

Master of Engineering Management

We are the first university in the UK to offer a Masters in Engineering Management (MEM) qualification, although technical universities in the USA have been running programmes successfully for over 10 years. MEM qualifications combine professional engineering practice with the core business management subjects that you might expect to find in an MBA. The crucial difference is that on an MEM all management-related content is firmly anchored in a technical context.

MSc Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Our new MSc combines electrical, electronic and systems engineering with computer control systems and artificial intelligence (AI) techniques. Thus the traditional electrical and electronic engineering subjects are supported by the more modern topics of computer control and AI techniques, which are at the forefront of modern electrical and electronic systems uses in industry.

MSc Mechanical Engineering

This broad-based Mechanical Engineering Masters provides opportunities to deepen, further, and broaden your engineering knowledge. Engineering employers have expressed their need for engineers with a solid grasp of the business requirements that underpin real engineering projects. Our course incorporates a management-related module focused on entrepreneurship and project management to develop graduates' commercial awareness.

MSc Mechatronics, Robotics and Embedded Systems

This new Masters offers an integrated approach to engineering incorporating: mechatronics; microprocessor-based control, robotics and embedded systems.  Manufacturing systems; product design; modelling; simulation; and quality management also form part of the curriculum as and where appropriate. Modern industry depends on its ability to integrate these disciplines into the manufacturing process and innovative products and systems.

MSc Advanced Telecommunications and Wireless Engineering

Our new MSc combines telecommunication and wireless engineering with broadband networking design and smart transceiver techniques. Thanks to the recent launch of 4G wireless networks (LTE), industry vendors are competing to recruit graduates with the unique combination of skills and knowledge in wireless and broadband networking.

Open for applications

Each of the developed courses is now open for applications for September 2014 entry on UKPASS. For information and guidance on application process, read the Postgraduate - How to Apply section of our website.
