Course summary

If you have an interest in how things work, you could find a rewarding and fulfilling career in mechanical engineering. Computer-aided mechanical engineering is a blend of mechanical engineering, computer aided engineering and systems design engineering. A form of ‘virtual engineering’, it allows engineers to test new products or systems without having to build expensive prototypes. The engineer can design a product or system and use computers to simulate real stresses that may result from applied loads. This programme has been designed with industry inputs and uses standard industry software such as PTC Creo and ANSYS to give you an understanding of the fundamental principles of engineering – design, Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE), materials and manufacturing methods – as well as learning how to provide solutions to complex engineering problems. All of GCU’s engineering programmes are accredited by UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) and the University has excellent links with industry, providing access to case studies, projects and work experience.
