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, Civil Engineering, oil, defense, finance and health.
This specialist option of the 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.
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, civil engineering and financial sectors.
