Course Summary

This course is designed to extend the knowledge, skills and ability of graduates in engineering, technology and applied science to the level required of senior positions in industry.

Industrial productivity and performance of many UK manufacturing companies, when compared to recognised world leaders, is considered by many to be of concern. Part of the underlying cause of this problem is the lack of highly-educated and trained engineering and technology graduates entering the Engineering Management disciplines, who are able to develop appropriate management strategies and to apply best practice techniques and technologies to industrial problems.

During this course you will cover such areas as; strategic management, new product development, supply chain planning and control and total quality engineering, these modules should provide you with a greater depth of knowledge and skill. In addition you will study a major individual project that will extend your knowledge in the area.

Modules

The module combines the theory and practical application of metrology for dimensional measurement of manufactured components. The module reviews the basic principles of metrology including calibration, traceability and inter-changeability. You'll be supported in performing measurements and in analysing data during laboratory work and study contemporary instruments including laser interferometers and co-ordinate measurement machines (CMMs). The application of international standards and the propagation of uncertainty associated with practical measurement, in particular the effects of temperature, will be reviewed and the use of temperature measurement techniques such as thermal imaging will be covered.
