Engineering (Manufacturing) (Far STEM) MSc

Key information

Qualification type

MSc - Master of Science

Subject areas

Manufacturing Engineering

Course type


Course Summary

The far STEM route is for chemistry, biotechnology, biochemistry, food science or similar first degrees where statistical analysis was a dominant feature of their analytical studies. You will spend four semesters studying towards a General Engineering Transition Masters, studying appropriate Level 5 modules in the first semester then joining the Near STEM cohort, again with the opportunity to specialise in the above options at L6 or L7.7. This master’s programme was introduced in response to the growing importance of professionally-managed purchasing and supply chains, as well as recognising the strategic value of skilled operations managers. These topics have been high on the political agenda for several years and as companies have become more aware of the strategic value of supply chain management, salaries have risen rapidly. Throughout the programme there also runs the thread of sustainability and social responsibility. The programme is taught by staff from the School of Engineering and Technology which was recently awarded an excellent grading in the HEFCE auditors' report.
