Master in Advanced Engineering Design (MSc) - Brunel

Brunel University London
On campus
2 Years
Start date
Jan 2024

Program Description

The master in Advanced Engineering Design (MSc) is described as ‘the doorway to industry’. It is for high-caliber, ambitious engineering or science graduates who wish to gain expertise in developing complex, multidisciplinary engineering designs.

The focus of the master in Advanced Engineering Design (MSc) is to provide you with advanced theory and skills to give you the essential expert knowledge needed for a career as an advanced designer, a design team leader, or a researcher in innovative engineering design working in a computer-assisted environment.

You will learn how to design products requiring embedded intelligence and comprehensive engineering analysis and will be taught by a team of highly regarded academics who will give you a thorough grounding in engineering design.

Course Content

You’ll take three modules in the first year and four modules in the second year when you’ll also work on your dissertation project.


Teaching and Learning

The staff have national and international reputations for their research, publications and applied work. This means that your education will be at the forefront of scholarship and practice, covering the most up-to-date industry knowledge.

The course is delivered through lectures, seminars, tutorials, laboratory classes, self-study, and individual and group project work.



Manufacturing Systems, Design and Economics

This module aims to meet the growing need of manufacturing industry for graduates with very high levels of knowledge and skills in advanced manufacturing processes, design of manufacturing systems and management of production facilities, including the understanding of materials and their properties in relation to production processes, the design of products for automated manufacture, advanced, automated production and assembly systems, and advanced and micro manufacturing and production processes.

Sustainable Design and Manufacture

This module aims to provide students with methods for analysing sustainability in design, quantifying the quality parameters, calculating and assigning appropriate tolerances, analysing the manufacturing operations for achieving the required quality targets.

The emphasis will be on the link between design information and manufacturing operations to produce products and propose operations that reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing.

Computer Aided Engineering 2

This module aims to equip the students with the knowledge and skills to carry out appropriate linear, non-linear static and dynamic analyses needed to solve design problems using FEA tools, to equip the students the knowledge and skill needed to visualise and interpret results from various analyses using commercial CAE packages, and to teach the necessary theory to correctly formulate a problem, carry out the analysis and interpret the results.

Computer Aided Engineering 1

This module aims to give the students the knowledge to model the entities, points, edges, surfaces and solids for CAE and the skill to create the computer model of a part or assembly using a contemporary CAE software package (CATIA), and to educate the students in the theory and application of Mechanism Synthesis and Analysis and to equip the students with the skill of modelling mechanisms using the MATLAB and Simulink software packages.

Design Experience

This module aims to give the students the experience in the design of multidisciplinary product or systems, to equip the student with the skills in project planning, management and execution as a team member, and to provide students with the global picture of designing a finished marketable product encapsulating mechanical, electrical, electronic and control logics.

Dissertation Project

This assignments aims to provide students with an opportunity to plan and execute a major professional project leading to a dissertation, to develop their communications, time management, research and development skills, to articulate their knowledge gained in their undergraduate programme and during the earlier parts of the MSc programme and to work independently in consultation with their academic supervisor.
