Study Mechanical Engineering and Product Design

 

Aston University



Mechanical Engineering is part of the School of Engineering and applied science that integrates major subject areas of relevance to industry and commerce. The degree programmes offer you career flexibility and opportunity of choice, which is reflected in the high employment rates of students graduating from Aston. During the 3-4 years of your degree programme your personal objectives and the market may change and exposure to a broad based approach is important in enhancing your market potential. The operation of the Mechanical Engineering group within an integrated school allows the engineering courses to provides a breadth of activity including management and financial aspects.

A major example of project activity is the design and build of a racing car as part of an International competition. This provides both the opportunity for individual projects and a group project where you will be involved in design project planning and management. The resulting vehicle is then entered in a national competitive 3 day event at the NEC in June. Such projects allow both the Mechanical engineering students and the students from the Design programmes to contribute. Medical engineering is a major research thrust and deals with the needs for modern high technology tools and aids and forms a major source of undergraduate projects. This involves innovative approaches to design, instrumentation, sensors, materials and control engineering

Product Design

Training to be a designer is a demanding, creative, exciting and fulfilling experience. At Aston University we believe it is important that you also become innovative, enterprising and successful.

Our courses are project based with hands on learning experiences in our studios, workshops, laboratories and model making facilities. As well as the opportunity to create models and prototypes we aim to develop your skills in 3D Solid Modelling and high level communication and presenational techniques.

NEW DEVELOPMENTS

We have a whole suite of courses to cover a wide spectrum of design experience that are focussed to meet the needs of modern business and industry. An exciting growth area is in the development of products that enhance and add value to the quality of people lives. For example our new Medical Product Design* programme values this amongst the whole range of current issues such as:

Technical, Commercial, Global, Legislation, Political and Psychological

It creates the opportunity for you to develop new skills, knowledge and expertise.

School of Engineering & Applied Science

Engineering and the application of science has always been one of Aston University's major strengths. With a tradition of quality education stretching back for over a century, the University is respected by students, employers and professional institutions alike for its academic excellence in both teaching and research. The School was awarded a coveted 5 for Research in the last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) in 2001, and there is a good and long established reputation for cutting edge research within the School involving real problem solving whilst advancing scientific knowledge. The academic staff undertaking this research teach on programmes at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, so new ideas and theories are always being developed within the curriculum.
