Computational and Software Techniques in Engineering MSc
Suitable for a wide range of students wishing to pursue careers in IT, engineering design, signal and image processing applications and e-Engineering.
Takes you on to a position or promotion within a wide range of software development companies, consultancies and allied industries where such skills are much in demand, both in the EU and beyond.
Our Computational and Software Techniques in Engineering MSc course consists of three parts: core modules, specialist modules and individual research thesis.
“This Master’s programme, with its unique blend of the practical and theoretical aspects of software techniques in computer aided engineering, has given me the confidence to move into industry.”
Students begin by following a set of four core modules:
- Management for Technology
- Computational Methods
- Computer Graphics
- C++ Programming
Students undertake a further six specialist modules within one of the following four options:
- Computer Aided Engineering
- Digital Signal and Image Processing
- Distributed Computing and e-Science
- Software Engineering for Technical Computing
Individual research thesis
Students then go on to undertake an individual research thesis project, allowing specialisation within an area of particular interest. Recent thesis titles have included:
- structural measurement of ceramic foam using image processing
- grid enabled rendering
- vision systems for real time driver assistance
- development and implementation of a legacy grid application
- design optimisation of aircraft turbo cooler system
- flame transfer functions from turbulent combustion (CFD)
- recovery of depth information using paired optical and thermal images
- implementing a build environment using the Cloud as a backend.
Typically a 1st or 2nd class UK Honours degree or equivalent in engineering, science, mathematics, computer science, information technology, communication, networks, or a related discipline. Other qualifications (eg HND or alternative) may be acceptable, provided there is evidence of sufficient relevant work experience.
1 year full-time, 2 years part-time.
