Course content

The course is aimed at engineering graduates who wish to gain the required academic qualification for registration as a Chartered Engineer, with a view to higher level careers in the off-highway vehicle industry.

It will also appeal to students who studied a physics or maths-based first degree but want to develop a career in this field and – ultimately – achieve Chartered Engineering status to progress their career in this dynamic sector.

The MSc programme will give you the skills to be effective members of engineering design and development teams within the off-highway vehicle industry, taking particular responsibility for analytical or computer simulation roles. The course will focus on three primary areas: engineering science and analysis, vehicle systems and architecture, and multi-domain modelling and simulation.

You will:

  • Learn to communicate ideas and technical management solutions to different audiences.
  • Develop the skills to undertake analytical or computer simulation roles.
  • Enhance your job prospects with in the off-highway vehicle engineering sector with high level academic study and the development of professional practice.
  • Master the art of formulating an hypothesis, designing suitable methods to test it and draw valid conclusions.
  • Use novel research techniques to solve problems encountered in the agricultural engineering industry.
  • Fulfil the academic requirements for a Chartered Engineer’s matching section if you have completed an accredited honours degree in an appropriate engineering discipline, or for an Incorporated Engineer’s matching section for those with a scientific or mathematical honours degree.
