Why choose this course?
This course examines the latest developments in digital product development and manufacturing. You will gain hands-on experience with the latest Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing applications, including 3D modelling techniques, 3D laser scanning, model reconstruction, 3D printing and Computer Numerical Control Machining.
You will also gain knowledge and experience in analytical Computer Aided Engineering design tools to assist the product validation process by applying advanced design simulation and finite element analysis techniques. Through an individual project, you will be able to extend your knowledge in a field of your choice, establishing yourself as a specialist.
Reasons to choose Kingston University
You will use the latest CAD/CAM/CAE computing technology at all stages, from design and testing to manufacturing.
The experience you gain will be hands-on laboratory-based experience and directly relevant to your future working environment.
The course meets the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) if you already have an Accredited CEng (Partial) BEng (Hons) or an Accredited IEng (Full) BEng/BSc (Hons).
The MSc will meet, in part, the academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng(Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration.
It should be noted that graduates from an accredited MSc programme, who do not also have an appropriately accredited honours degree, will not be regarded as having the exemplifying qualifications for professional registration as a chartered engineer with the Engineering Council; and will need to have their first qualification individually assessed through the individual case procedure if they wish to progress to CEng.
Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by other countries that are signatories to international accords. Please check the Engineering Council website for more information.
