About Mechanical Engineering at School of Computing and Engineering, University of Huddersfield

Entry RequirementsEntry requirements for this course are usually the following: Honours degree (or equivalent experience) in: Mechanical Engineering Manufacturing Engineering Engineering Systems or a closely related science subejct area.IntroductionThis course is designed to provide the further learning required by the Engineering Council for BEng(Hons) graduates to meet the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer status. It is suitable for graduates from a range of engineering disciplines - mechanical, manufacturing and engineering systems, or closely related science disciplines such as chemical, applied sciences and industrial design. In order to meet the further learning requirements, the course provides a balanced diet of technical deepening, technical broadening and management. The course includes a substantial project that allows you to develop your own particular interests within the broad area of Mechanical Engineering.Course StructureIt is recognised that students will enter the course from a range of undergraduate courses. Technical broadening within modules covering finite elements analysis and dynamic analysis and aerodynamics and air management is therefore used to ensure that all students are equipped to effectively study the more advanced analytical elements of the course. Further technical broadening is provided within a module including maintenance and reliability. Building on the technical broadening, an Advanced Mechanical Analysis module and the Aerodynamics and Air Management module take you much deeper into these subject areas. Graduates will be equipped to undertake non-linear solid, complex dynamic and advanced computational fluid dynamic analysis. Non-technical broadening is included in the course with the study of Quality Management, Project Management and New Product Development. These modules will equip you to take on management roles soon after graduation. To provide you with a good basis to undertake your project and a framework for your future career development, a Professional Development and Research Methods module is included. This is followed by a major project. The subject of this project is agreed by you and the project supervisor and will allow you to demonstrate your project management skills in addition to the deeper technical skills acquired whilst studying the modules. It is anticipated the the project will include original work suitable for publication. Finite Element Analysis Non-linear Static Analysis Dynamic Analysis Computational Fluid DynamicsAerodynamics Project Management Quality, Maintenance and Reliability New Product Development Professional Development Research Methods Major ProjectTeaching and AssessmentThe course is taught principally through lectures, tutorials, studio based assignment work and laboratory based research activities. The laboratory activities make use of industrial standard software and mechanical facilities. These facilities include one of the most advanced precision engineering laboratories in the UK with a range of ultraprecision surface measurement, coordinate measurement and machining equipment. A range of mechanical test and analysis equipment is also provided to enable fatigue, modal and thermal analysis. Within the automotive laboratory a wind tunnel, a range of engine test beds (including a transient diesel rig and two wheel dynamometer) and four-post ride simulator are available for your use. 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.Career OpportunitiesThe course material is designed to prepare you for a career as a Chartered Engineer within a broad range of mechanical and manufacturing industries. This could include highly specialist analysis consultancy services, small enterprise companies, large utility companies and large volume manufacturers.Further StudiesThe major project may be linked to industry or may be sourced from one of our research teams. In the last Research Assessment Exercise our Mechanical and Automotive research and the Centre for Precision technology (CPT) was graded 4 out of 5. Engineering research is organised within five research groups under the umbrella of the Centre for Precision Technoliges (CPT). The Centre has an international reputation and collaborates with many international companies such as Siemens, Heidenhain, Cincinnati, DST, MAZAK, Zeiss, OSAI, Reinshaw, FLIR, Newall Electronics, BAe, Rolls Royce, GKN, Micro Metalsmiths and Kistler.
