This course is for practising engineers or graduates who want to become technical specialists or managers in industrial and manufacturing companies. It increases your career potential by improving your:
-Knowledge and experience of materials engineering.
-Technical and problem solving skills.
-Management skills.
-Ability to take on greater responsibility.

You also develop your understanding of current best practice in the theory and application of leading edge technologies, processes and systems in materials engineering.

You study:
-Two management modules
-Five technical modules
-One optional module (option modules include: advanced manufacturing technology; CAD/CAM; engineering for sustainability; equipment engineering and design; finite element / finite difference analysis)

The international product development module involves working in multidisciplinary teams to develop a new product within a global market. This develops much sought after advanced technical and business skills. The project provides a supported environment to develop your ability in an area of your interest.

Professional recognition

Accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of partly meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer; graduates who have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng will be able to show that they have satisfied the further learning requirement for CEng accreditation.

Assessment: examination, coursework, project reports.

Other admission requirements

Overseas applicants from countries whose first language is not English must normally produce evidence of competence in English. An IELTS score of 6.0 with 5.5 in all skills (or equivalent) is the standard for non-native speakers of English. If your English language skill is currently below an IELTS score of 6.0 with a minimum of 5.5 in all skills we recommend you consider a Sheffield Hallam University Pre-sessional English course which will enable you to achieve an equivalent English level.

India
-A first class BE in an relevant discipline, or a good second class BE with a strong performance in mechanical and manufacturing subjects.

China
-A four year Bachelors degree in an relevant discipline, with an overall average of at least 80 per cent or equivalent.

Other countries
-A good honours degree or equivalent in an relevant subject.

A rewarding career

Engineers apply scientific and technological principles to solve problems in a creative way. It’s a well-paid and rewarding career that is constantly changing with new developments in technology. And with a shortage of electrical and electronic engineers in the UK, your skills will be in demand. Electrical engineers are at the forefront of many innovations in the way we live and work today. They design, produce and install systems which power and control a range of products and digital communications.

What you study

You can follow your interests to create the right programme of study for you. Initially, you take two modules in engineering principles. Then, with guidance from your course leader, you select from a range of technical modules covering topics including electrical and control engineering and electronic systems.

In addition to your technical modules, you also take an engineering management subject and participate in a multidisciplinary product development project with MSc students from a range of engineering specialisms. You develop an understanding of how engineering projects work and how they relate to the commercial world, as well as becoming part of our engineering community and learning to think like an engineer.

One third of your study will be an individual project and dissertation. You specialise in a technical area of your interest and carry out your own in-depth investigation into a particular problem. Where possible, this will be an industry-related problem.

Expertise

Many of our academic staff are actively involved in research. Examples of recent projects include • developing equipment to monitor the bone mineral density of young children for Sheffield Children's Hospital • developing palm-sized robots to enable firefighters to safely enter and negotiate hazards in burning buildings.
