This course is delivered by the School of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing.
The Faculty's wide selection of undergraduate and postgraduate courses covers a diverse range of subject areas, from aerospace to geography; from maths and computing to biotechnology; and many more. Our collaborative set-up provides new opportunities for our students, and we design our courses with industry professionals to ensure you stay up to date with the latest developments.
The School of Mechanical and Automotive Engineering offers a range of teaching and research activities, delivering a portfolio of courses from foundation degrees right through to doctoral level.
The School has a hands-on teaching approach. Our courses encompass applications from all areas of engineering, providing our students with the knowledge and flexibility they need to work across many industries, both in the UK and overseas.
"I am a Chartered Engineer, member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and member of the British Computer Society. I specialised in CAD/CAM/CAE, engineering design and manufacturing automation and have been at Kingston University since 1994. I worked in the manufacturing industry before starting my academic career at Kingston University where I also held a research fellowship and then a lecturer position. My research project was based on the development of a pneumatic array of air jet proximity to tactile sensing device for manufacturing parts identification. I also held a research fellowship for more than two years, during that time I was involved in promoting research in manufacturing automation and assembly. I also carried out further research in the application of the tactile sensing device to monitor slip and gripping force to assist robot part handling and assembly. I am on the editorial boards of three international journals Sensor Review, Industrial Robots and Assembly Automation and review other international journals/conferences."
