Advanced Engineering Management

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.
