Masters degrees in Manufacturing Systems Engineering equip postgraduates with the skills to research, design and development of systems, processes, machines, tools, and equipment for manufacturing purposes.
Taught MSc degrees are typical for the field, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Mechanical Engineering.
Put simply, Manufacturing Systems Engineering involves turning raw materials into a new or updated product in the most economic, efficient, and effective way possible.
Training on these courses is highly interdisciplinary, combining methodologies and from a range of disciplines , such as Computer Science , and Materials ScienceDesign.
You will explore the latest technology and advanced materials incorporated into current manufacturing practise, including polymer technology, digital design, automation and robotics.
Training in project management skills is a key component, including theory in operations strategy, statistics and logistics. Investigation of legislation - including quality assurance, sustainability and health and safety - is a key component.
Careers may include work in industries such as automation, aviation, energy production and mobile technology.
