Student Profile

Asaf Rafid

I studied Advance Manufacturing Systems MSc.

The thing that attracted me the most to Brunel was the wonderful mix of subjects on the Advance Manufacturing Systems course. After eight years of working in the industry as a manufacturing engineer, the courses appealed to me, and seemed to have the highest potential to enrich my professional career.

With a full heart, I would say that my study experience was simply excellent. Each one of the eight modules was delivered by top professionals and experienced teachers. This made every lesson both interesting and challenging and I hardly missed a class. On top of the modules I had a remarkable experience when working on the dissertation. My supervisor, who is a true professional in his field, was extraordinary both as a tutor and as a professional guide, and I learned greatly from him.

My dissertation project highly contributed to my engineering experience and equipped me with some very powerful tools. The dissertation thesis was “Developing Algorithms for Automatic Dimensioning and Tolerancing of Mechanical Parts”. The goal of the project was to find an automatic algorithm that defines manufacturing dimensions and tolerances to parts (i.e. cylinder, block, etc) in the most sustainable and cost effective way. I chose this subject because being a mechanical engineer I had to design and develop parts, then to assign dimensions that can be used later for production. My dissertation research had helped me to explore ways for finding more effective ways to assign these dimensions, so that a design will be more economical and costly. In addition, my other goal was to turn this logic into automated system that will save precious engineering developing time.

I am currently working as a Product Engineer at and international leading company, Objet Geometrics LTD. I get to practice and bring into use many of the theoretical things I learned at Brunel, and this gives me a great feeling of satisfaction. I also feel that the MSc in Advance Manufacturing Systems was a significant contributor to being accepted to Objet.

Finally, I can whole heartedly recommend applicants to come and study at Brunel. It has a wonderful administration team with a good customer service approach, excellent student facilities including a Computer Centre, labs etc. Most importantly, I felt that the teaching staff were highly professional, trained and experienced. All of this creates a wonderful environment for studying and learning, and it certainly was the case for me.
