Further develop your ability to apply a socially aware, responsible and consistent approach to design, manufacturing and organisation – essential for professional engineers - and meet the academic criteria you need to progress to Chartered Engineer status. Throughout your studies you’ll apply modern computer-aided engineering techniques to the manufacturing industry, studying modules designed to improve your analysis and problem-solving capabilities - and in your final year, you’ll take part in student-led project and individual projects to put all of your new skills into real-world application. You’ll graduate thoroughly prepared to take on the engineering industry. Graduates in CAE pursue careers in a wide range of industries including aerospace, marine, nuclear and petrochemical. Their roles are usually in design, manufacturing or production. Engineering graduates are in greater demand than ever, which means the options for you are rich and endless, including careers in aerospace, the automotive industry, the Ministry of Defence and research development. Put simply, engineers are concerned with the conversion of natural resources into valuable products and services that benefit us all. Those choosing a career in engineering can be confident that their skills will always be in demand. Those with specific knowledge of Computer-Aided Engineering will also have the ability to exploit the advantages of new technologies to extend their engineering expertise. This degree course provides a programme of study containing modern computer-aided engineering techniques that are applied within manufacturing industry. These include computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacture and computer-aided production management.
