Student Profile


I could tell from my bachelor’s degree that I had a greater interest in the manufacturing side of engineering, and one of the logical places to further my education in the subject was Loughborough. The engineering reputation of this University and the fact the course was accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) were the main reasons I picked Loughborough.

I thought that the course and lecturers were brilliant at introducing and giving insights into various aspects of current, but mainly future manufacturing. We were able to see first-hand more specialist equipment within the University’s facilities, such as the Centre for Biological Engineering and Intelligent Automation Centre which helped put perspective to the lectures. During the course, I got to use a 3D printer for the first time and also have a go at programming an industrial robot as part of my research project.

My master’s was really helpful for my career. It helped me identify the general industry I wanted to work in. In particular, the module on lean manufacturing coupled with a trip to the JCB factory really helped me make my mind up at the time.

I believe I was offered a spot on the Graduate Scheme at Jaguar Land Rover largely because this course enabled me to express an understanding and interest in the subject of advanced manufacturing. The Careers Centre on campus also helped me prepare well for the assessment centres.

To anyone considering doing a master’s in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering and Management, I would say that the course is worth doing because the subjects studied are very relevant to challenges faced in engineering today. I look back at modules like Sustainable Development and with virtually all companies making ‘Net Zero’ pledges, there is definitely a part for qualified engineers to play.
