This Masters programme is aimed at engineering graduates aspiring to senior level positions in large manufacturing or service provider organisations, or as part of an engineering supply chain. Graduates from related disciplines can embrace engineering continuous improvement, operations management and enterprise requirement planning (ERP) applications in engineering.

About the programme

In many engineering organisations ERP is the main software system application that controls and assists in the management of all functional departments and the whole facility, often globally. This unique programme has a UK and global appeal for career development and future plans are currently being developed to offer SAP ERP certification. It satisfies both the operations management and continuous improvement (CI) elements within engineering, and the application of ERP systems such as SAP and/or Oracle. Many companies use ERP within the supply chain including Terex, Tata Steels, RollsRoyce, Honeywell, Audi, and BMW.

This programme will develop the skills you need to interface with functional users, other than engineers, giving you an informed view for further configuration or customisation.

Your learning

Core topics include ERP, continuous improvement and operations management with options of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Project Management and modules with further planning and management of resources.

Our lecturers are seasoned industry experts, and we complement their knowledge with industry visits to determine the effectiveness of various applications.

MSc students undertake a dissertation, selecting a specialism to achieve a greater understanding of the implementation and advanced use of software applications, management initiatives and planning within an engineering setting. There may be scope to integrate this dissertation with industry, where an engineering supervisor will be allocated to assist your MSc journey and to advise and introduce you to industry links.

Our Careers Adviser says

Graduates are equipped for the next step in their career in manufacturing and service operations. Most business organisations that implement ERP solutions use fully-trained, qualified implementation partners and consultants throughout their lifecycle.

There is demand for graduates who have had some initial education and training and hands-on experience in ERP solutions such as SAP. Businesses, ERP solution providers, and consulting organisations require top calibre trained ERP consultants and users. UWS graduates who are trained in ERP and supporting materials will possess a unique skill-set that will be a differentiator when competing in the employment market.

Professional recognition

We will seek accreditation for this programme in the near future from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

Industry-standard facilities

Our recently upgraded facilities will ensure you’re equipped to deal with the requirements of industry:
• Recent investment in new laboratories for engineering and physics will further enhance our reputation for applied interdisciplinary research
• Paisley Campus – fully equipped manufacturing workshop; materials testing and analysis facilities; metrology laboratory; rapid prototyping centre; and assembly and welding laboratories
• Significant investment in facilities for thin film technologies, micro-scale sensors and nuclear physics research
• Lanarkshire Campus – £2.1 million engineering centre, with particular focus on the design and engineering disciplines opened in 2008
• Both Lanarkshire and Paisley campuses have modern, dedicated IT facilities utilising a range of industrial applications software such as PRO/Engineer, Ansys, Fluent, WITNESS and MS Project.

This programme is for engineering graduates aspiring to responsible positions within aerospace, automotive and general mechanical engineering companies. It is also ideal for engineers holding a BEng degree that require a further learning element to qualify for Chartered Engineer registration.

About the programme

This programme is designed to deepen and widen your knowledge and understanding of mechanical engineering specialist topics. It offers a wide range of core modules that advances the core knowledge base of the disciplines and provides the necessary and continuing development of appropriate interpersonal and transferable skills at a level that a Mechanical Engineer would be expected to have, allowing you to function in an advanced engineering environment as senior engineers and managers. While the main focus of the programme is on taught modules, you will have the opportunity to explore a specific subject in more detail through the dissertation.

Your learning

The programme will be delivered by highly-qualified and experienced members of the School’s teaching staff through a combination of lectures, tutorials, practical classes, laboratories, case studies and specialist guest lectures. Assessment is principally by coursework assignments, laboratory investigations and examinations.

A key component of the programme is the research based dissertation. This will give you the opportunity to investigate a project in your chosen field of interest.

You will also be expected to present your work to internal staff and external industrialists as part of the learning and assessment process.

Core modules include:
- Advanced Structural Integrity
- Advanced Fluid Mechanics
- Computational Fluid Mechanics
- Advanced Finite Element Methods and Analysis
- Instrumentation and Measurement
- Advanced CAD/CAM
- Advanced Heat Transfer
- Composites Design and Analysis
- Project Management
- Research Methods.

Our Careers Adviser says

Our graduates will have developed expertise to improve their employability within design and development of the automotive, aerospace, offshore, oil and gas and all main stream mechanical engineering industry sectors.

It is expected that graduates will obtain professional employment with companies such as Rolls Royce, Howdens, Doosan Babcock, Babcock International, Spirit AeroSystems, BAE Systems, and Thales Optronics.

Professional recognition

The programme has been designed to satisfy the accreditation requirements of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) for CEng registration and we will be seeking this accreditation in the near future.

Industry-standard facilities

Our recently upgraded facilities will ensure you’re equipped to deal with the requirements of industry:

This technical Masters programme is aimed at engineering graduates aspiring to responsible positions within consulting and contracting organisations, and is also for engineers who require the additional learning that addresses current Joint Board of Moderators (JBM) requirements for candidates to obtain chartered engineer status. Graduates from related disciplines can embrace further technical training that includes structural, geotechnical, materials engineering with project design and management at a level that prepares them well for senior positions within their areas of expertise.

About the programme

This programme has a UK and global appeal for career development and future plans are currently being developed to offer students the requisite skills to become CEng qualified through the Joint Board of Moderators. It satisfies the technical and managerial expectations required by civil engineering employers as the programme will develop the skills needed to interface with functional users, other than engineers, giving you a more holistic view of the processes behind successfully delivering a civil engineering project.

Your learning

Transferable and key skills are delivered throughout the programme through online material, specialist lectures, site visits, laboratory work, integrated project work and interaction with experienced professionals. Teaching staff are all experienced within industry and academia. Assessment is principally from coursework assignments, examinations and a research dissertation. You will also be expected to present your design work to internal staff and external industrialists as part of the learning and assessment process.
