Cranfield University Computer Science

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.

Who is it for?

Suitable for candidates from a broad range of engineering and applied mathematical backgrounds, including aeronautic, automotive, mechanical and electrical engineering, in addition to those with a mathematical and computational sciences training, who wish to both develop and complement their existing skill-set in these important areas.

The specialist taught modules are designed to provide you with the knowledge, programming techniques and practical skills necessary to develop and use core CAE solution software over a wide range of industrial settings.

Why this course?

We are 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.

This course is also available on a part-time basis, enabling you to combine studying alongside full-time employment. We are very well located for visiting part-time students from across the UK and Europe
