What you'll study Core module Individual Project Compulsory modules Statistical Methods and Reliability Engineering Project Management and Research Skills This module introduces you to a structured approach to planning/bidding, managing and controlling a project. You'll explore current practices, topics and methodologies relevant to contract and project management. You'll develop research skills for designing, planning and conducting an academic or industry-based engineering project. Sustainable Engineering Systems Optional modules Energy Technologies Engineering for Quality and Six Sigma Gain insight into the requirements and need for predictable and repeatable manufacturing methods. You'll investigate the role of engineering quality and the philosophies implemented by industry. You'll focus on understanding and applying tools and techniques to ensure total quality. Advanced Materials and Processing Learn to understand the atomic, nanometre and micrometre scale structures of metals, ceramics, polymers and other advanced materials. And use electron and x-ray-based techniques to discover how to characterise these structures and establish the relationship between structures, processing and properties. Computational Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer Get hands-on experience with a major commercial CFD package and demonstrate your skills for a practical engineering application. Past examples have included race car aerodynamics, America's Cup yachts, engine intakes, turbo-machinery, chemical process equipment and fires in buildings.
