MSc - Master of Science
Why choose this 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.•
Many of our graduates are now in jobs at top international companies such as Rolls-Royce, Siemens, Alstom, and Airbus.•
The taught element of the programme includes design, and stress and fluid dynamics analysis, using state of the art commercial software, such as ANSYS.•
Develop your skills in particular aspects through your choice of MSc research project, which would be aligned with one of the University Research Centres.
Teaching & Assessment
The programme is informed and guided by the Active Learning Framework (ALF), which incorporates a blended learning approach. This approach is a key part of the delivery and involves teaching, learning support, and the delivery of online sessions. The embedding of ALF provides students with a more flexible approach to their learning and is fundamental in giving all students equal opportunity to succeed.
The MSc Engineering (Mechanical Manufacture) programme facilitates the needs for a range of diverse industries at local, national, and international levels, to provide them with potential future employees of the highest calibre. The programme has been devised to give you the opportunities to demonstrate your relevant technical expertise, innovation, commitment, and sound judgment. Thereby producing students who are Engineering professionals and a sought-after asset to future employers. Previous students are either in full time employment or pursuing a PhD.
The course equips you with a thorough knowledge and skills in engineering at the forefront of new and emerging technologies. Graduates will be well placed to become subject specialists within industry, or to pursue research careers within academia.
