Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) covers the use of computers in all activities from the design to the manufacture of a product. It is at the forefront of information technology and of crucial importance to economies around the world. It is a vital part of many global industries including those of automotive, aerospace, oil, defence, finance and health.
This specialist option of the MSc Computational and Software Techniques in Engineering has been developed to reflect the wide application of CAE and to deliver qualified engineers of the highest standard into industries operating in the fields of computational and software engineering.
Cranfield is a leader in applied mathematics and computing applications. The CAE option benefits from the knowledge and experience gained by the staff through their strong industrial links, particularly our well-established research collaborations with the petrochemical, automotive, aeronautical and financial sectors.
This course produces well qualified graduates, ready to take on professional roles without additional training on the job. In recent years, key employers have requested a student visit to showcase their graduate roles.
The course consists of twelve core modules, including a group design project, plus an individual research project. A combination of mathematical, computational and hands-on use of industry standard CAE systems form the basis of the specialist modules, covering the theory and application of CAE based software for the modelling, analysis and simulation, in diverse fields such as automotive, aeronautical, flow related industries, data fitting and visualisation.
The Computer Aided Engineering option is designed to equip you with the skills required to pursue a successful career working both in the UK and overseas. This course attracts enquiries from companies in rapidly expanding engineering IT industry sector across the EU and beyond who wish to recruit high quality graduates.
There is considerable demand for students with expertise in engineering software development and for those who have strong technical programming skills in industry standard languages and tools.
Typically graduates are employed by software houses and consultancies, or by CAD/CAM and other engineering companies in software development roles and industrial research.
