About the course

We aim to ensure that the MSc Engineering (Mechanical Manufacturing) comprises fit-for-purpose teaching and research experience to provide a solid background for a career in the engineering and manufacturing industry sector.

The Government is focusing heavily on boosting the UK manufacturing industry; failure to meet demands for engineering skills could cost the UK £27bn a year. 58% of all new jobs will be STEM related, and the number of those studying for degrees in science, engineering and technology must increase by over 40% on current levels if demands are to be met. Of all STEM skills, those in mechanical and manufacturing engineering are becoming increasingly highly valued.[1]

Student Profile(s)

NATHAN CATHERALL

- What were you doing before coming to Wrexham Glyndwr University?

I was working full time at TATA Steel Shotton, undertaking their graduate scheme as a recent graduate in Engineering from Cardiff University.

- What attracted you to Wrexham Glyndwr University?

Glyndwr had a multitude of potential MSc options that I could take which were relevant to my current field of work. It is situated in a good location for me to get to on a day release basis. The course prices were very reasonable for what I was hoping to achieve which was a major factor in encouraging my employer to allow me to further develop my engineering understanding.

- What do you enjoy most about your course?

I have enjoyed the fact that the class sizes have been very intimate, which has allowed good discussions to take place in all lectures and a strong comradery has been built with everyone helping each other to succeed.

- What do you hope to do when you graduate?

Once I graduate I will continue working at TATA Steel and will be able to become a chartered engineer with my master’s level of education and my experience. I am hoping to use some of my newly found engineering skills in my work.

- What has the support been like?

I have always been able to find help if required, with most lecturers going above and beyond their call of duty to help in any way they can.

- How do you think you have benefited from studying at Wrexham Glyndwr University?

I think Glyndwr has developed a more practical side to my engineering skills, as previously I was more subjected to the theory with out any application. The availability of the workshops, the design packages and other facilities, has given me a stronger string to my bow.

- If you were to sum up your experience at Wrexham Glyndwr University in one word what would it be and why?

Confident. From day one the tutors have instilled a level of confidence in me that I did not have before, I have been encouraged and developed from day one and feel good about my academic abilities with my results strongly showing my new found confidence..
