Overview

Applications are co-ordinated by CRUK CI. Prior to submitting the on-line application form (GRADSAF), you should identify a supervisor in the Institute who is willing to host you for M.Phil study. The Institute accepts only a few M.Phil students every year, mainly because bench space is very limited and so competition for places is particularly fierce. In the main, applicants are successful if they are recognized as bringing a valuable technique or methodology to their host lab.

The MPhil course lasts for 12 months, during which time the student is expected to complete a research project, and write and submit a thesis of less than 20,000 words in length. The student will then be examined orally on the thesis and on the wider field of knowledge into which it falls. The students are provided with information which clearly sets out what is expected of them during their period of research in order to obtain their degree.

Each student has a principal supervisor and is also assigned an adviser who provides additional support. In addition, Ann Kaminski (Head of Scientific Administration) acts as the first point of contact for any student with a query or difficulty that is not directly related to their scientific work.

All student matters in the Institute are overseen by the Cancer Biology Graduate Education Committee, which has the well-being of our students at heart. All first year graduate students are required to attend a series of around 30 lectures on cancer biology which take place in the Institute. The lectures are given by specialists in their fields and they aim to provide all students with a comprehensive overview of cancer biology, ranging from basic cell biology through to cancer diagnosis and treatment. Throughout their period at the Institute, all students are expected to participate in journal clubs, lab meetings, lectures and seminars. They are also encouraged to take advantage of the numerous and varied types of transferable skills training offered by both the Institute and the University. Students are encouraged to attend scientific meetings relevant to their course of study. All students in the Institute are members of the student-run Graduate Society which organises regular scientific and social events.

See the website http://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/courses/directory/cvcrmpmsc

Teaching

The MPhil in Medical Science course is exclusively by research. The project and supervisor are determined during the application process. In addition to the principal supervisor, it is likely that the student will also be appointed a day-to-day supervisor who is able to provide hands-on assistance. Given the interdisciplinary nature of some of the projects, students will also be expected to seek guidance from other colleagues, including post-docs and core facility staff. Students will participate in the Institute's weekly seminar programme.

- One to one supervision
Formal supervision approximately one hour per week, plus also day-to-day supervision in the lab.

- Lectures
2 hours per week

- Journal clubs
5 hours per term

- Feedback
Students should expect to receive on-going feedback from all supervisors involved in their research project. In addition, the principal supervisor will write termly reports on Cambridge Graduate Supervision Reporting System.

Assessment

- Thesis
The student is expected to submit a thesis, which should be less than 20,000 words in length and post-submission, the student will be examined orally by two examiners on the content of the thesis and on the wider field of their research area.

- Other
The student is expected to give a brief presentation (15 - 20 minutes) to the Institute approximately 10 weeks after commencing study. This allows the student to introduce him/herself to all colleagues and to inform them of the nature of his/her project.

This Masters programme is aimed at engineering graduates aspiring to senior level positions in large manufacturing or service provider organisations, or as part of an engineering supply chain. Graduates from related disciplines can embrace engineering continuous improvement, operations management and enterprise requirement planning (ERP) applications in engineering.

About the programme

In many engineering organisations ERP is the main software system application that controls and assists in the management of all functional departments and the whole facility, often globally. This unique programme has a UK and global appeal for career development and future plans are currently being developed to offer SAP ERP certification. It satisfies both the operations management and continuous improvement (CI) elements within engineering, and the application of ERP systems such as SAP and/or Oracle. Many companies use ERP within the supply chain including Terex, Tata Steels, RollsRoyce, Honeywell, Audi, and BMW.

This programme will develop the skills you need to interface with functional users, other than engineers, giving you an informed view for further configuration or customisation.

Your learning

Core topics include ERP, continuous improvement and operations management with options of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Project Management and modules with further planning and management of resources.

Our lecturers are seasoned industry experts, and we complement their knowledge with industry visits to determine the effectiveness of various applications.

MSc students undertake a dissertation, selecting a specialism to achieve a greater understanding of the implementation and advanced use of software applications, management initiatives and planning within an engineering setting. There may be scope to integrate this dissertation with industry, where an engineering supervisor will be allocated to assist your MSc journey and to advise and introduce you to industry links.

Our Careers Adviser says

Graduates are equipped for the next step in their career in manufacturing and service operations. Most business organisations that implement ERP solutions use fully-trained, qualified implementation partners and consultants throughout their lifecycle.

There is demand for graduates who have had some initial education and training and hands-on experience in ERP solutions such as SAP. Businesses, ERP solution providers, and consulting organisations require top calibre trained ERP consultants and users. UWS graduates who are trained in ERP and supporting materials will possess a unique skill-set that will be a differentiator when competing in the employment market.

Professional recognition

We will seek accreditation for this programme in the near future from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

Industry-standard facilities

Our recently upgraded facilities will ensure you’re equipped to deal with the requirements of industry:
• Recent investment in new laboratories for engineering and physics will further enhance our reputation for applied interdisciplinary research
• Paisley Campus – fully equipped manufacturing workshop; materials testing and analysis facilities; metrology laboratory; rapid prototyping centre; and assembly and welding laboratories
