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.
Here at Wrexham Glyndŵr University, 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.
Many of the academic staff have industrial experience spanning a broad range of engineering areas and working levels. Many students from previous years are now in jobs at top international companies such as Rolls-Royce, Siemens, Alstom, and Airbus.
FULL-TIME STUDY (SEPTEMBER INTAKE)
The taught element, Part One, of the programmes will be delivered in two 12 week trimesters and each trimester has a loading of 60 credits.
You will cover six taught modules which include lectures, tutorials and practical work on a weekly basis. The expected timetable per module will be a total of 200 hours, which includes 40 hours of scheduled learning and teaching hours and 160 independent study hours.
Part Two will then take a further 15 weeks having a notional study time of 600 hours. During this time the student will be responsible for managing his/her time in consultation with an academic supervisor.
FULL-TIME MODE (JANUARY INTAKE)
For the January intake, students will study the three specialist modules first during the second trimester from January to May. The three core modules will be studied in the first trimester of the next academic year from September to January.
On successful completion of the taught element of the programme the students will progress to Part Two, MSc dissertation to be submitted in April/May.
The taught element, part one, of the programmes will be delivered over two academic teaching years. 80 credits or equivalent worth of modules will be delivered in the first year and 40 credits or equivalent in the second year. The part time students would join the full time delivery with lectures and tutorials/practical work during one day on a weekly basis.
The dissertation element will start in trimester 2 taking a further 30 weeks having a total notional study time of 600 hours. During this time the student will be responsible for managing his/her time in consultation with an academic supervisor.

The information listed in this section is an overview of the academic content of the programme that will take the form of either core or option modules. Modules are designated as core or option in accordance with professional body requirements and internal academic framework review, so may be subject to change.
You will be assessed throughout your course through a variety of methods including portfolios, presentations and, for certain subjects, examinations.
The courses will give you the chance to advance your career to management levels. You might also consider consultancy, research and development, testing and design positions within the aeronautical industry. Airbus is a classic example of an employer excelling in this field in the north Wales region.
