The programme has been designed to provide postgraduate education and training in Manufacturing Management. The course includes modules in topics such as Computer Aided Engineering, Quality and Manufacturing Systems. A significant proportion of the students on the course come from local engineering companies and study in a part-time mode. Both the MSc and PgDIP versions of the course are also suitable for engineering or science graduates wishing to up skill in order to improve their employment prospects.
The course draws upon the internationally recognised research within the school in areas such as Aerospace Composites, Polymers, Advanced Metal Forming, Medical Devices, Biomedical Engineering, and Nanotechnology. Such research within the school has led to several successful spinout companies. Staff teaching on the course also have a wealth of industrial experience with many have decades of experience working with a wide range of companies. The following represent some of the available taught modules: Core modules, Manufacturing Systems. Computer Aided Engineering for Engineers, Quality Improvement A wide range of optional modules are available which allow students to tailor the course to their interests or employment.
Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)
Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE)
Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.
Work placement / study abroad
Part-time students can undertake work based learning modules.
Upon successful completion of the programme students will be more employable within a wide range of manufacturing industries. The wide range of optional modules available in areas such as Biomedical Engineering, Nanotechnology, Aerospace and Materials allows students to tailor the course towards their particular interests. Another important opportunity for MSc students is the academic/research career through a PhD programme such as those offered in the Engineering Research Institute (ERI) which hosts the MSc programme.
