Manufacturing is at the heart of engineering, as everything in our daily lives needs to be made. Manufacturing engineers therefore play a vital role in the creation of wealth and in sustaining and improving the living standards of society. The Advanced Manufacturing Technology & Systems Management course is one of the most well-established of its kind in the UK, and it aims to provide our students with the tools, knowledge and understanding of this broad based discipline that demands expertise in many diverse topics.  

This course is one of the most well-established of its kind in the UK, having evolved from the very successful MSc course in Machine Tool Technology, and is regularly updated in line with subject developments and changing industrial practices. Advanced Manufacturing Technology and Systems Management has developed into a broad based multi-disciplinary field, demanding expertise in many diverse topics. The structure of the course reflects this by requiring in-depth study of a number of topics ranging from the fundamentals of manufacturing processes to the management of manufacturing systems. More specialised study takes place during the dissertation project where students undertake individual research projects of industrial relevance. The MSc course has a strong practical orientation and it aims to produce engineers with the theoretical and practical experience which will enable them to analyse and investigate problems and to engage in design, development and research involving manufacturing technology. The course also prepares graduates for the management of manufacturing systems. Whilst the course is intended primarily for those wishing to pursue an industrial career, it is equally relevant as preparation for research in advanced manufacturing technology and systems management.

Teaching and learning

The Advanced Manufacturing Technology and Systems Management MSc is a full time course which is studied over 12 months and there is one start date each year in September. 

Throughout the course you will develop advanced technical skills in both manufacturing technology and systems management, as well as soft skill such as team working, presenting and report writing, all of which will enable you to pursue a career in both general and specialised engineering industries or develop an in-depth knowledge for a career in research in industry or academia.

During the course you will visit a number of companies, such as Airbus and Jaguar Land Rover, and have the opportunity to attend industrial guest lectures, which will not only further enhance your understanding of manufacturing but also to give you an insight into the practical application of many of the subject areas you will be studying. Moreover, many of the dissertation projects, one of which you will be working on as part of this course, originate from and are run in collaboration with industry.

The Brunel programme aims to create the new generation of engineering designers who can combine knowledge from different areas and produce world class design.

Engineering design is the application of engineering principles, the experience of making, and use of mathematical models and analysis. The design and production of complex engineering products often require the use of embedded intelligence and detailed engineering analysis involving mechanical, electronic and control functions. Advanced theoretical knowledge and a wide range of computer driven tools, methods and methodologies are essential for this process – and the course provides graduates with these essentials.

Course Content

Continued design of modern complex products demands advanced knowledge in mechanical, electronic, manufacturing and control engineering disciplines and human factors in design, and an ability to use advanced engineering software packages, integrating application experience and a capacity to carry on learning.

The Advanced Engineering Design MSc has been developed to produce design engineers who can meet these demands. It contains six taught modules where advanced multi-disciplinary theory is taught. As part of the course, six engineering software packages are also taught. In order to give an integrating application experience in an industrial setup, 'Design Experience', a group project module with an industry, has been included as part of the curriculum.

The dissertation is aimed at providing training in carrying out an in-depth engineering task on a self-learning basis. By the end of the course you will become a confident design engineer equipped with high quality and advanced knowledge and skills to work on design tasks in an advanced computer assisted environment.
