Computer-Aided Engineering (option of Computational and Software Techniques in Engineering)

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. Computer Aided Engineering systems provide virtual product development environments allowing 3D models to be created, analysed, optimised and stored efficiently; operational and extreme physical conditions can be evaluated, reducing (and sometimes eliminating) the need for prototypes.
