Postgraduate Study

The School teaches postgraduate courses in four major subject areas: Advanced Manufacturing & Enterprise Engineering (AMEE), Brunel Design, Electronic & Computer Engineering (ECE) and Mechanical Engineering.

School of Engineering and Design offers a number of IMechE approved masters distance learning modules for students to study as part of their Further Learning Plan in achieving recognition as a Chartered Engineer.

IMechE Approved Distance Learning Modules

The programme examines the links between theory and practice by including input from our industrial partners and through site visits. Modules in financial and project management will underpin specialist modules focusing on water engineering topics. Additional core engineering topics unique to this course will also be covered, namely industrial wastewater, water in healthcare, water in agriculture, and desalination.

Further, students' skills in gathering and understanding complex information from a variety of sources (including engineering, scientific and socio-economic information) will be developed in an advanced research methods module. Issues relating to risk and health and safety will be introduced in the research methods module and built on in the more specialist modules.
