Engineering: Design and Manufacturing

The Engineering: Design and Manufacturing Graduate Level Apprenticeship will be based on the very successful BEng(Hons) Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering programme that currently runs in both full-time and part-time modes within the Department of Engineering.

The Department has over 30 years’ experience in the delivery of part-time mechanical engineering education, with continual input from our Industrial Advisory Board which includes representatives from Clyde Bergemann, EDF Energy, GSK, Howden and TUV-NEL.

The programme is supported by state of the art facilities such as 3D printing, 5-Axis CNC milling and a newly refurbished thermofluids laboratory. Students also have access to more traditional mechanical engineering laboratories for fabrication, material testing, metrolog and welding.

What you'll study

The BEng(Hons) Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering programme combines the essential areas for an engineering degree:

  • Engineering Science
  • Mechanical Engineering Design and Analysis
  • Manufacturing and Materials
  • Computer Aided Engineering (CAE)

The CAE theme throughout the programme encompasses the full product design cycle:

  • 3D modelling
  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • The combination of FEA with manufacturing simulation to ensure a strong consideration of Design for Manufacture.
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).
