Overview

Become a leader in your field and gain the expertise needed to advance your career in process control and new product development.

You will focus on applying the latest technology and management systems to current engineering issues. These include the ability to respond rapidly to changes in the global market by inventing products that address agile, environmental and management control issues. You will use simulated automation and management systems to analyse problems and test your solutions.

Your first semester will concentrate on process control and the second will focus on new product development. You will have access to excellent equipment and resources, including a rapid prototyping machine, programmable logic controllers, a Vicon motion capture system and the latest engineering software such as FlexSim and Autodesk Design Suites.



Research Excellence Framework 2014
Research Excellence Framework 2014: our University demonstrated strength in five emerging areas of research which it entered into the assessment for the first time, including computer science.

You will be taught by a team of experts who are research active and have published books and written many papers in the field of engineering. Professor Reinhold Behringer has worked at the Rockwell scientific Institute in Southern California on the SciAutonics Project which produces Autonomous Robots.

The first semester concentrates on process control and the second concentrates on new product development. Successful completion of semester one provides a postgraduate certificate, semester two a postgraduate diploma, and on completion of the semester three project you will gain a masters qualification.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

“Working and studying at the same time has worked really well for me - I've been able to apply each of my modules to what I do on a day-to-day basis. My course has strengthened my knowledge of the electrical industry and allowed me to start formulating ideas for my own website.

Teaching and learning

We regularly review our courses to ensure we are offering you the best educational experience. This course is currently being reviewed for 2019 entry, therefore the information below is correct for students joining us in 2018/19 but there may be changes for students who wish to join us in 2019/20.

Evaluate how modelling and simulation of industrial systems can increase productivity and reduce response time to market demands.

You will study real time control issues using the latest PLC controls and emulation software. You will conduct remote monitoring using Web enabled software and wireless connectivity.

This module covers environmental issues such as recyclable material selection, design for minimum power used in process, minimum material required (FEA), design for manufacture and assembly.

Analyse how organisations respond to rapidly changing markets, and unknown or changing product requirements. You will examine how the philosophy of lean product development can increase agility and better use of resources.

Develop the skills required to initiate, plan, execute, manage and sign off a project. You will focus on appropriate methodologies, standards, legislation and the nine core knowledge areas associated with project management.

During this module you will reflect critically on your own development and gain an enhanced understanding of the methods and skills required to carry out masters level research successfully.

The dissertation / final project aims to provide an opportunity for you to engage in research and advanced scholarship in a subject area of your choice, which is appropriate the course.

An introduction to intelligent systems and robotics, you will learn about fundamental principles and approaches for intelligent systems, autonomous behaviour, sensing and control, through the practical example of a simple robotic device (Delta Robot).

Gain an understanding of the techniques involved in systems programming. You will look at various approaches to design and programming modern day computer systems at a very intricate level.

Explore the principles of networking, focusing on the techniques for deploying modern converged networks. You will study the tools, techniques and paradigms for creating hybrid networks that support converged applications, for example data and internet telephony.
