BEng (Hons) Computer Aided Mechanical Engineering

 

Computer-aided mechanical engineering is a blend of mechanical engineering, computer-aided engineering and systems design engineering. A form of ‘virtual engineering’, it allows engineers to test new products or systems without having to build expensive prototypes.

This programme has been designed with industry input and uses standard industry software (such as PTC Creo for 3D modelling and manufacturing simulation and ANSYS for Finite Element Analysis) to give you an understanding of the fundamental principles of engineering – design, control, materials and manufacturing methods – as well as learning how to provide solutions to complex engineering problems. All of GCU’s Engineering Programmes are accredited by UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) and we have excellent links with industry, providing access to case studies, projects and work experience. All MEng pathways within the Engineering Suite satisfy the academic requirements required for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the programme meets/will contribute to the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
