This is an innovative module which delegates will find not only challenging but also very rewarding as it will extend the way they think about management excellence and research application. Through interactive module content, based upon the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence, you will be guided through the theory and practice of professional development and research. Through the use of a number of diagnostic instruments and application tools, you will be able to benchmark your leadership, teamwork and interpersonal skills, thereby providing a firm foundation for reflective career planning through portfolio development. On completion, you will be equipped to manage your career through to professional registration and have the ability to lead complex research projects. This activity will be supported by seminars led by experts in the field of research and development from academia and industry, prior to the delivery of equally weighted group and individual project assessments.
This module has been designed to be offered to students who have a basic understanding of operations management, quality assurance and control, together with the statistical techniques employed in probability theory. The module aims to build on this knowledge, giving you the ability to implement and operate quality systems, maintenance regimes and reliability trials.
This module aims to extend your knowledge of the scientific principles used in more advanced static analysis of mechanical components and systems and to understand the role that mathematical and computer based modelling plays in this type of analysis. The module allows you the opportunity to gain experience in the use of commercial analysis software to solve non-linear structural problems.
The module uses selected topics to give the student an advanced understanding of the analytical tools applied to dynamic mechanical systems. The student will develop the ability to analyse complex systems using commercial software packages. The module further provides, through theory and practical examples, the means to quantify and solve realistic problems.
This module combines the use of theoretical, experimental and computational tools to help you develop a thorough understanding of aerodynamic features associated with moving vehicles as well as air handling requirements. The module introduces you to various commercial computational fluid dynamics packages.
This module aims to raise your understanding of the strategic, leadership and technical aspects of project management and their role in adding competitive advantage to any enterprise. Concepts and techniques for programme and project management are introduced, developed and applied, with the aid of industrially relevant case material. Focus is placed upon the need for competence of project planning and control, together with contemporary methodologies such as Prince2 and Agile techniques. Through the module you will gain a firm grounding in the principles, processes, tools and techniques that underpin project management, but also be encouraged to challenge traditional thinking in the field. Team-working and communication skills are developed by means of group activity. Extensive use is made of software for project management with assessment undertaken through an equally weighted group project and examination.
The module combines the theory and practical application of metrology for dimensional measurement of manufactured components. The module reviews the basic principles of metrology including calibration, traceability and inter-changeability. You'll be supported in performing measurements and in analysing data during laboratory work and study contemporary instruments including laser interferometers and co-ordinate measurement machines (CMMs). The application of international standards and the propagation of uncertainty associated with practical measurement, in particular the effects of temperature, will be reviewed and the use of temperature measurement techniques such as thermal imaging will be covered.
To achieve advancements in the contemporary performance imperatives of quality, speed and price, enterprises need to constantly update their product portfolios. This module provides an overview and consolidation of the skills required to implement and manage the New Product Development (NPD) process within the context of a commercial enterprise. Emphasis is placed upon the evolution, development and exploitation of NPD strategies; together with consideration of innovation policies, models, culture and practice. Appropriate management methodologies are then introduced to assess new product ideas, determine feasibility, and define those products to achieve commercial gain. Module delivery is provided through formal lectures and extensive practical sessions, prior to the delivery of equally weighted group and individual project assessments.
The project provides the opportunity to undertake a major programme of advanced independent work. Where possible the project is carried out in collaboration with an industrial company and takes place at the company. A project supervisor is then allocated at the University who would check and confirm if the project is suitable for a Master's level course.
The course is taught principally through lectures, tutorials, studio-based assignment work and lab-based research activities.Assessment methods reflect the emphasis of the course on the ability to apply knowledge and skills, and are diversely linked to examination, assignment, project work and research/laboratory activities.
Your module specification/course handbook will provide full details of the assessment criteria applying to your course. Assessment will include coursework and peer review and reflect the emphasis of the course on the ability to apply knowledge and skills.
Feedback (either written and/or verbal) is normally provided on all coursework submissions within three term time weeks unless the submission was made towards the end of the session in which case feedback would be available on request after the formal publication of results. Feedback on final coursework is available on request after the publication of results
The teaching year normally starts in September with breaks at Christmas and Easter, finishing with a main examination/assessment period around May/June. Timetables are normally available one month before registration.
