About this course

Learn how to design using simulation software on this MSc Computational Engineering Design course. Effective modelling is vital to the automotive, aerospace and bioengineering sectors. 

Our master's degrees in advanced mechanical engineering science combine the traditional aspects of mechanical engineering with interdisciplinary subjects so you can specialise in a career you want. Our international centre for research and teaching is recognised across the world. 

This UK master’s degree explores the latest techniques, methods and simulation software used in computational engineering and design. We'll teach you how design ideas are created, tested and how to work with industry.  

Computational modelling is important to industries such as: 

  • automotive 
  • aerospace 
  • bioengineering 

On this master of science in computational engineering, you’ll learn to use simulation software tools to see how designs will work in practice. We’ll teach you to use advanced numerical methods and to apply design search and optimisation principles to solve problems. 

You’ll learn from academics at the forefront of their fields, they teach the latest in technology advancements. Studying at Southampton gives you access to a global network of companies, shared facilities and specialist expertise to enhance your learning.

We regularly review our courses to ensure and improve quality. This course may be revised as a result of this. Any revision will be balanced against the requirement that the student should receive the educational service expected. Find out why, when, and how we might make changes.

Our courses are regulated in England by the Office for Students (OfS).
