INTRODUCTION

The respected International Society of Automation (ISA) estimated that at least 15,000 new automation engineers are needed annually in the US alone. Many industrial automation businesses throughout the world comment on the difficulty in finding experienced automation engineers despite paying outstanding salaries.

The Master of Engineering (Industrial Automation) perfectly addresses this gap in the Industrial Automation industry. The program's twelve core units, and project thesis, provide you with the practical knowledge and skills required. Students with a background in electrical, mechanical, instrumentation and control, or industrial computer systems engineering can benefit from this program.

The content has been carefully designed to provide you with relevant concepts and the tools required in today’s fast-moving work environment. For example, Power Engineering covers major equipment and technologies used in power systems, including power generation, transmission and distribution networks. Programmable Logic Controllers covers in-depth principles of operation of programmable controllers, networking, distributed controllers, and program control strategies. Industrial Process Control Systems combines the process identification and feedback control design with a broad understanding of the hardware, system architectures and software techniques widely used to evaluate and implement complex control solutions. Industrial Instrumentation identifies key features of widely used measurement techniques and transducers combined with microprocessor devices to create robust and reliable industrial instruments. Process Engineering will enable students to evaluate and apply complex process calculations through application of control principles. Industrial Data Communications provides the requisite knowledge to manage modern field buses and industrial wireless systems. Safety Systems provides an introduction to the common safety philosophy of hazard identification, risk management and risk-based design of protection methods and functional safety systems. SCADA and DCS cover hardware and software systems, evaluation of typical DCS and SCADA systems and configuration of DCS controllers. Special Topics enable students to incorporate current technologies and the knowledge acquired from the entire course and thus solve complex Industrial Automation problems.

The Masters project, as the capstone of the course, requires a high level of personal autonomy and accountability, and reinforces the knowledge and skill base developed in the preceding subjects. As a significant research component of the course, this project will facilitate research, critical evaluation and the application of knowledge and skills with creativity and initiative, enabling students to critique current professional practice in the Industrial Automation industry.

Undertaking a masters programme is a serious commitment, with weekly contact hours in addition to numerous hours of independent learning and research needed to progress at the required level. When coursework or examination deadlines are approaching independent learning hours may need to increase significantly. Please contact the course convenor for precise information on the number of contact hours per week for this programme.

Part-time

Part-time study options often mean that the number of modules taken is reduced per semester, with the full modules required to complete the programme spread over two academic years. Teaching is generally done during the day and part-time students should contact the course convenor to get an idea of when these teaching hours are likely to take place. Timetables are likely to be finalised in September but you may be able to gain an expectation of what will be required.

Whether it's the computers in our offices, the smartphones in our pockets, the electrics in our cars or the technology that enables us to monitor patients in critical care, software is at the heart of our society. This MSc programme focuses on advanced theoretical and practical techniques in program design, and the management of software project risk.

This programme will:

-Teach you advanced techniques in program design
-Allow you to study key issues of interactive system design
-Teach you the mathematical foundations of software and the practical application of these techniques
-Focus on discovering ways of mitigating risk in large scale software engineering projects
-Enable you pursue roles in areas such as software design and engineering, web development, project management and IT consulting.
-We offer Industrial Experience options on all our full-time taught MSc programmes, which combine academic study with a one-year industrial placement between your taught modules and summer project. Taking the Industrial Experience option as part of your degree gives you a route to develop real-world, practical problem-solving skills gained through your programme of study in a professional context.

This can give you an important edge in the graduate job market. As a leading research School, we have excellent links with industry. We also employ dedicated staff to help you arrange your year in industry. The Industrial Experience programmes are highly competitive and attract the best students given the limited availability of placements. We are unable to guarantee all students secure an industrial placement, as our industrial partners conduct their own employment application and interview processes.

We have a new MSc Software Engineering and Security pathway to the MSc Software Engineering degree. If you are interested in this pathway you need to apply for the MSc Software Engineering programme and take the pre-requisite modules and then you would be able to graduate with the MSc Software Engineering and Security.

Security, authentication and identity management have grown substantially in importance in recent years, and there is significant demand in both the commercial and national/local government sectors for software engineers with a good grasp of these areas hence introducing a pathway in Security.

NB: Students will need to take and pass the following modules in order to be eligible for the pathway title MSc in Software Engineering with Security.

ECS726P - Security and Authentication (semester 2)

ECS760 - Distributed Systems and Security semester 2)

ECS715P - Program Specifications (semester 1)

ECS737P - Software Analysis and Verification (semester 2)

ECS738 - Bayesian Decision and Risk Analysis (semester 2)

Industrial Experience

The industrial placement currently takes place towards the end of the first year for a maximum of 12 months. It is the student’s responsibility to secure their placement, the school will offer guidance and support in finding and securing the placement but the onus is on the student to secure the job and arrange the details of the placement.

Currently if you are not able to secure a placement by the end of your second semester we will transfer you onto the 1 year FT taught programme without the Industrial Experience, this change would also be applied to any visa if you were here on a student visa.

The industrial placement consists of 8-12 months spent working with an appropriate employer in a role that relates directly to your field of study. The placement is currently undertaken between the taught component and the project. This will provide you with the opportunity to apply the key technical knowledge and skills that you have learnt in your taught modules, and will enable you to gain a better understanding of your own abilities, aptitudes, attitudes and employment potential. The module is only open to students enrolled on a programme of study with integrated placement.

If you do not secure a placement you will be transferred onto the 1 year FT programme.

Introduction

MA Industrial Design applies intellectual development directly to design practice, empowering you take on a strategic role, to identify and respond to trends, to initiate new design approaches, and to thrive in multidisciplinary teams.

Content

Flexible, imaginative, innovative and collaborative, industrial designers must respond to rapid commercial and technological change. Increasingly, designers are called on to take a proactive role in industry and to get involved in strategic decision-making.

This course is part of the Ceramic, Industrial and Product Design programme. MA Industrial Design students anticipate and initiate change in all areas of industrial design - in consumer-durable and capital goods, in transport, packaging and sanitary ware, in furniture for private, corporate or public environments, in architectural space, in interface design and design management, and in strategies for corporate and governmental development.

The relationships between industrial designers, manufacturers, retailers, purchasers and users are constantly being renegotiated, demanding greater flexibility and wider knowledge of industry and commerce. Against this backdrop, managerial skills are often as important as the engineering and creative skills required to develop design concepts. MA Industrial Design emphasises self-directed and peer-group learning, benefiting hugely from the range of cultures and backgrounds represented by our students.

Structure

MA Industrial Design lasts 60 weeks structured as two consecutive periods of 30 weeks each (i.e. two academic years) in its 'extended full-time mode'.

MA Industrial Design is credit rated at 180 credits, and comprises 2 units. Unit 1 (60 credits) lasts 20 weeks. Unit 2 (120 credits) runs for 10 weeks in the first year and 30 weeks in the second year.

Both units must be passed in order to achieve the MA, but the classification of the award of MA derives from your mark for Unit 2 only.

ISMM is very different to any other academic course: it combines traditional teaching material with a series of industrial visits, some of which will take place overseas. The course members work a full industrial week and conform to business dress codes. This intensive, practical programme gives direct experience of many different industries, cultures and working environments, and the projects present real challenges in genuine industrial and business environments. The aim of the course is to equip numerate graduates with the skills, personal development and industrial experience to be immediately effective in their early careers in industry.

ISMM will broaden your perspective and experience and open the door to a wide range of industrial careers. Many blue chip companies recognise the value of the course and target our graduates. Equally, for those who want to work in a smaller company, ISMM gives the confidence to start directly in a manufacturing engineering or management role. Those with entrepreneurial flair go on to set up their own companies.

The programme is structured around taught modules, company visits and in-company projects solving live business or technical problems. An overseas study tour offers a broader international context and the individual research thesis allows greater depth of study in a specific area of manufacturing.

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

Course detail

During the year you will acquire a working understanding of the fundamentals of a business enterprise, with a particular emphasis on manufacturing disciplines. You will visit up to forty companies, large and small, chosen to cover all industrial sectors; you will absorb the different cultures and learn to identify strengths and weaknesses. By the end of the course you will be in a perfect position to choose your career direction.

Skills acquired during the course include:

- critical analysis;
- creativity – the generation of innovative solutions;
- evaluation of designs, processes and products;
- balancing theory and practice;
- problem identification, definition and solution;
- data gathering, evaluation and analysis;
- effective communication written, verbal and graphic;
- preparation of business and finance cases;
- presentation preparation and delivery;
- project management;
- report writing;
- a 'can do' attitude;
- teamworking;
- appreciating the responsibilities of leadership

Format

Teaching is delivered through a variety of media. During Cambridge termtimes, there will be traditional academic lectures and interactive seminars; the dissertation is based in one of the Institute for Manufacturing's research groups and will involve normal graduate-level supervision. However, much of the learning during the course takes place during the industrial visits (of which there are approximately forty annually), and on the projects themselves. During the projects, students can expect to receive substantial 'supervisory' feedback from their line managers and colleagues. Academic assessment of the course is split into three components: examinations on module material; assessment of project reports; examination of the dissertation.

Placements

In addition to the series of industrial visits, students will undertake four two-week industrial placements over the course of the programme. During this time they will be working on live business/technical issues relevant to the company, and will be treated as an employee. These placements will terminate in a presentation to the Senior Management of the company, and in the writing of a handover report that will be examined as part of the course assessment.

Assessment

All students will be required to write a dissertation of no greater than 15,000 words. Achieving a passing mark on this dissertation is a precondition for obtaining the degree.

All students are required to write four project reports, each of which will be based on two weeks of project work on an issue relevant to a host company.

Four taught modules will be assessed through written assessments under timed conditions.
At the discretion of the Examiners, candidates may be required to take an additional oral examination on the work submitted during the course, and on the general field of knowledge within which it falls.

Students can expect to receive reports at least termly on the Cambridge Graduate Supervision Reporting System. They will have access to a University supervisor for their dissertation, and can expect to receive input from their line managers during project placements.

Continuing

The MPhil is a professional practice programme and is not specifically designed to lead on to doctoral research. Nevertheless, students wishing to apply for continuation to a PhD in Engineering at Cambridge would normally be expected to attain an overall mark of at least 70%.

How to apply: http://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/applying

Funding Opportunities

Bursaries are available to two categories of applicant.

Category A: Bursaries of between £1,200 and £1,800 are available to successful applicants who either (i) have UK citizenship; or (ii) have settled status in the UK, and have been ordinarily resident in the UK and Islands (for a purpose other than full-time education) for the three years prior to the 1 September immediately preceding the course.

Designed for NYC

New York City boasts the country’s largest number of creative-sector jobs and attracts top design talent. Local industry events and collaborations with commercial and nonprofit partners deepen connections to the field. In the MFA Industrial Design program, students combine advanced making skills with critical inquiry to design for production at all scales, from low volume to high volume, employing methods ranging from desktop manufacturing to systems involving global supply chains. Students develop their knowledge and skills at the university’s state-of-the-art product prototyping and testing facilities.

A Connected Curriculum

The MFA Industrial Design curriculum balances competing interests such as economical production and sustainability, consumerism, social and environmental improvement, and global and local production, investigating ways to integrate and reconcile these forces as a whole. In their second semester, MFA students explore limited-run making in New York City, and in the third semester they can investigate large-scale global production through virtual collaborations or study abroad at sites including Parsons Paris. A specialized thesis project offers opportunities to develop designs that advance — or challenge — industrial design theory and practice.

Parsons’ Master of Fine Arts in Industrial Design program offers an innovative two-year, 60-credit full-time graduate curriculum that prepares students to negotiate the seemingly contradictory forces at play in the growing product design industry. Students explore the way goods can be produced in both localized contexts (a “making in place” approach, which relies on regionalized needs and constraints) and globalized contexts (employing design principles focusing on universal needs). Parsons’ School of Constructed Environments includes graduate students in Architecture, Interior Design, and Lighting Design, creating a unique learning community.

This program is part of Parsons' School of Constructed Environments (SCE). Learn about the SCE community and explore our SCE blog to see what students, faculty, and alumni are doing in NYC and around the world.

A Community of Designers

The faculty of design practitioners aims to develop a community of designers committed to improving industry, protecting the environment, and promoting the quality of life. The MFA Industrial Design program attracts motivated, reflective students with experience in product design but also accepts candidates from other design professions and disciplines such as engineering, fine art, management, and anthropology. An innovation-focused university with programs in the social sciences, business and management, media studies, and the performing arts, The New School offers complementary courses that enrich design practice.

Future Opportunities

Students graduate equipped with the ability to integrate the many considerations involved in product design and to lead as socially aware makers, strategists, and industry specialists. Graduates emerge prepared to design innovative products and lead the industries that produce them as well. Career paths include industrial design, product development, manufacturing, furniture design, humanitarian and service design, toy design, design management, and architectural building systems.
