Systems Engineering MSc

Programme information

This programme has been designed with industry to meet the challenge of interdependence between sophisticated engineered systems of all kinds, and is aimed at engineers who have specialised in a traditional discipline but are now expected to understand, operate in, develop and integrate entire systems that are not only increasingly complex but rapidly changing.

We employ advanced modelling, simulation and interactive visualisation tools and techniques to enable you to gain greater understanding of the performance, behaviour and emergent properties of advanced technology and complex systems.

The block taught format of the programme and the option to elect assessment by coursework rather than exam makes it a popular part-time programme and a CPD option.

Entry requirements
