From Master’s to post-doctoral level, we offer a rewarding and inspiring environment in which to study. Postgraduate study can be very rewarding; an investment in your future that could enhance your career prospects. Taught courses The Department offers stimulating postgraduate taught courses broadly covering both Mechanical Engineering and Electronic and Electrical Engineering. Whether you choose to study within the Mechanical Engineering or Electronic and Electrical Engineering discipline we have a course for you. In addition to our traditional courses we also offer a range of specialist courses covering Oil and Gas Engineering, Railway Safety and Risk and Advanced Metrology.

Our postgraduate courses could help you improve your management and project skills as well as challenge your approach to complex situations. By providing practical project experience, team-working opportunities and specialist knowledge of your chosen discipline, we will help develop your ability to work collaboratively in a multidisciplinary environment. Research courses Our research courses involve in-depth study of a specific field across the Engineering discipline. Our Master’s by Research is the ideal option if you wish to undertake research and development to enhance your career with little or no formal taught component. If you would prefer to explore an entrepreneurial idea and undertake taught components, the Master’s in Enterprise is another alternative.

If you are looking for highlyfocused research, we offer a number of flexible routes to a PhD. Whilst the challenge of undertaking a research degree is not to be underestimated, the rewards and benefits can be vast. For some, undertaking a research course will be the start of a career in academia, whilst for others it will prove invaluable to personal and career growth and developing a range of skills. The information in this brochure will provide an overview of all the courses within these subject areas.

Key research areas

Key research areas

Research at Huddersfield is going from strength to strength and in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) assessment, the University increased its ranking by 143%. These developments mean that the University is now in the top half of the UK Research Power league table.

Key Highlight

Our pioneering research is showcased by recognised centres of excellence, strategic industry relationships and a commitment to providing state-of-the-art facilities and equipment. The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology The University is home to the £8m Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology. The research undertaken by the EPSRC Centre is enabling the manufacturing sector to meet the ever increasing challenges of precision, complexity and quality, whilst minimising costs. The EPSRC Centre is delivering cutting edge, innovative research by academics that not only understand the needs of industry but can translate the research into applied solutions.

Professor Jane Jiang, the Director of the EPSRC Centre, is a Fellow of Royal Academy of Engineering. Most recently Jane has been appointed as the Royal Academy of Engineering/Renishaw Chair in Precision Metrology. Jane was also awarded the Sir Harold Hartley Medal in 2014 for her outstanding contribution to the technology of measurement and control.

The research highlights for the EPSRC Centre over the past year have been: • Combining metrology and biology expertise to deliver healthcare benefits • Showcasing metrology research at LAMDAMAP 2015 • Modelling and compensation of thermal errors • New engineering Chair to help develop factories of the future

With five new Professors, over £12million in current EPSRC grants and a total of new research funding of £8.3million awarded over the past year, research in the School of Computing and Engineering continues to grow in strength with a number of our research areas involved in projects that have a major impact. The School of Computing and Engineering has three institutes and a number of research centres and groups that include:

20 Engineering

• Institute of Railway Research • Turbocharger Research Institute • Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology • Institute for Accelerator Applications • Centre for Efficiency and Performance Engineering • Centre for Precision Technologies • Adaptive Music Technologies’ Research Group • Energy, Emissions and the Environment Group • Condition Monitoring and Diagnostic Group • Measurement and Data Analysis Group

• Electron Microscopy and Materials Analysis Group • Automotive and Marine Engineering Research Group • Music Technology and Production Research Group • Systems Engineering Research Group For more information on the research that is being carried out at Huddersfield and the opportunities that are available visit hud.ac.uk/research

The EPSRC Centre has been commercialising research and supporting industry by: • Developing a new ‘smart database’ aiding industry with ISO standards • Commercialising an award winning optical instrument • Practical measurement support for industry The EPSRC Centre has been developing skills and expertise by: • Developing a virtual toolbox to deliver GPS training • Delivering a roll-to-roll manufacturing summer school • Victorious at prestigious precision engineering competition For more information on the research being carried out in the EPSRC Centre visit hud.ac.uk/research/researchcentres/cimam/

The Institute for Railway Research

Electron Microscopy and Materials Analysis Research (EMMA)

The Institute of Railway Research (IRR) at The University is a world-leading centre in the field of railway engineering and risk.

Electron Microscopy and Materials Analysis centres around the use of electron microscopy to study the interaction of energetic particles with matter.

This area of research seeks to improve the knowledge of the way in which railway vehicles interact with the track, including key performance aspects such as suspension performance, wheelrail contact, traction and braking. In partnership with industry, this work has led to a number of new tools and techniques. The IRR with funding awarded totalling £2.1million over the past year, is one of 55 partners taking part in the six year 18 million Euro In2Rail initiative. Focusing on developing radical new technologies to boost the capacity of Europe’s railway network.

22 Engineering

The IRR is organised in three core teams handling a broad range of projects. These include: EU Framework 7 projects The Team is currently involved in several EU Framework 7 projects including; DynoTRAIN, D-Rail, SustRail and Capacity4Rail. Projects also include New Horizon 2020 and EPSRC projects. The Centre for Innovation in Rail (CIR) The Centre supports innovation in the railway industry. Examples of applied R&D solutions are • New concept vehicle design study for a large UK Metro system • Development of a new methodology for freight vehicle access charging based on vertical track damage predictions.

• Development of light rail wheel and rail profiles to reduce derailment risk and optimise asset life • Vehicle and Track geometry optimisation for the Crossrail system to reduce wheel wear and propensity for rolling contact fatigue RSSB Strategic Partnership The strategic partnership with RSSB has recently been set up to bring together inter-disciplinary research in the areas of engineering system modelling and railway safety and risk modelling.

The work of EMMA makes an important input into decisions regarding the choice of materials for future nuclear reactors. So much so, Professor Donnelly and the team from EMMA have consolidated their position in nuclear material and nanomaterials research by winning a succession of awards totalling £4.8million. This includes a multimillion pound award to develop an advanced facility.

The MIAMI facility The Microscope and Ion Accelerator for Materials Investigations facility (MIAMI) is a custom-designed facility consisting of a JEOL 2000FX transmission electron microscope connected to an ion accelerator. It uses ion beams to simulate the effects of radiation damage in-situ and allows for nanoscale examination.

This facility offers unique opportunities for investigation into the effects of energetic particles on materials as it allows the observation and recording of dynamic processes occurring under ion irradiation rather than just the recording of end states. This confirms the University as one of the world’s leading centres for the analysis of nuclear materials, ensuring the safety of the new generation reactors.
