Modern manufacturing is a growing industry worldwide and is continually challenging engineers for more effective use of technology, management systems, production techniques and processes.
The Advanced Manufacturing Systems and Technology MSc has been developed in conjunction with the industry partners to develop industry ready engineers.
The programme is designed to provide advanced level knowledge, breadth and depth for modern manufacturing engineers and managers.
Fully accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers UK, this programme is constantly updated to reflect the latest developments in technology, management tools and methodologies.
This 12-month programme consists of compulsory and optional taught modules over two semesters and a major project starting in semester 2 and continuing through the summer.
Project work contributes 60 credits, which will be based on a topic of industrial or scientific relevance, and will be carried out in laboratories in the University or at an approved placement in industry. The project is examined by dissertation, and award of the MSc(Eng) degree will require evidence of in-depth understanding, mastery of research techniques, ability to analyse assembled data, and assessment of outcomes.
Why School of Engineering?
In the Research Excellence Framework 2014, our research was ranked 5th in UK for 4* and 3* research (world leading and internationally excellent research)
Our teaching programmes are also highly rated and this is underpinned by an extensive programme of research.
The School of Engineering has a welldeserved and highly respected reputation for its excellent experimental and computational facilities. Our £32 million redevelopment includes the state-of-theart ‘Active Learning Labs’, a cutting-edge teaching facility, one of the largest and best equipped in Europe. We have two research-standard full motion flight simulators (one of which is unique in the academic world), mechanical robotics, wind turbines, water flumes, additive layer manufacturing and many more facilities.
We equip our students for rewarding careers and our graduates have found jobs in a wide range of industries and organisations, both in the UK and abroad.
Programmes include a strong practical element and incorporate the latest academic and industry research, enabling you to work effectively at the forefront of engineering.
When you graduate you can count on the University's Careers and Employability Service to help you plan your future.
We've consistently achieved the highest grades in research assessments and many of our research programmes are supported by industrial companies such:-
- Agusta Westland - Airbus - BAE Systems - QinetiQ - Unilever - Jaguar - Ford - National and international bodies such as EPSRC and the European Commission.
