Course content

This MSc in Advanced Engineering Design is aimed at high calibre and ambitious engineering graduates who want to gain expertise in systematically developing complex, multidisciplinary engineering design.

You will learn how to design products requiring embedded intelligence and comprehensive engineering analysis and how to use six CAE software packages.

The programme is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineering (IMechE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology. This provides a route to Chartered Engineer status in the UK, and professional recognition.

The modules have been developed to fulfil the industry’s need for an integrated course that offers:

  • teaching of advanced theory, human factors and creativity tools essential to successful product development
  • training in software, research and applications
  • practical experience of applying your knowledge and skills through an integrating, real life group project.


Integration of mechanical, electrical, electronic and control knowledge into a single product is challenging – and this course allows you to appreciate the complexity of modern product design and to develop your expertise.

The Brunel programme aims to create the new generation of engineering designers who can combine knowledge from different areas and produce world class design.

Engineering design is the application of engineering principles, the experience of making, and use of mathematical models and analysis. The design and production of complex engineering products often require the use of embedded intelligence and detailed engineering analysis involving mechanical, electronic and control functions. Advanced theoretical knowledge and a wide range of computer driven tools, methods and methodologies are essential for this process – and the course provides graduates with these essentials.
