Design engineers are problem solvers who bridge the gap between traditional engineering and design. It's a discipline that draws on knowledge of product development, technical design, manufacturing techniques and rapid prototyping to bring new innovations to market. It also focuses on improving existing products and the processes used for making them.
Some of the greatest human achievements have come from creative design engineering, enabling the realisation of some truly remarkable change in our world. Design engineering has helped to transform the environment, create incredible super-structures on land and sea, and even helped people travel into the solar system.
Design engineering has also developed many of the most important systems and services, from individual right up to global and universal scales. These systems have supported radical scaling up of human activity in a huge range of areas.
This Design Engineering at The University of Strathclyde addresses the issues associated with a rapidly changing market and the demands for better, cheaper and personalised products, developed within the shortest possible time. It will provide thorough training in design theories and process models, design methods, design techniques, computer supported product modelling, analysis, evaluation and physical rapid prototyping of a design solution. In addition to the enterprise skills necessary to launch brand new products to market.
Design engineers use technical knowledge, mathematical and design skills to create innovative solutions to problems across a diverse range of industries.
This course will propel your design engineering career forward because it will:
- provide you with the knowledge and skills to develop your own abilities to tackle more complex roles
- enhance your CV with a competitive edge through gaining a Masters
- develop industry experience through the Postgraduate Group Project module which provides you with first hand industry experience which can be used as example work during any future interviews
The MSc Design Engineering has been awarded academic accreditation from three institutes. This demonstrates the degree meets the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) as outlined by the Accreditation of Higher Education Programmes (AHEP).
