Advanced Technology Management (Engineering Analysis)

This course aims to develop students' knowledge and understanding of modern engineering analysis and simulation tools and techniques related to product development and optimisation before manufacture. Students gain a comprehensive understanding of how various IT-based tools and systems function whilst also gaining insights into how these are implemented effectively across a range of industrial sectors. The course aims to allow students to acquire advanced knowledge and systematic understanding of contemporary finite element modelling techniques to analyse the behavior of complex engineering systems and components. It will involve a comprehensive understanding of advanced solid mechanics and analytical techniques pertinent to product development and sustainability, and to apply these advanced techniques to synthesize novel designs of a range of engineering systems.
