Course Summary

Course overview

Manufacturing is at the heart of engineering, as everything in our daily lives needs to be made. Manufacturing engineers therefore play a vital role in the creation of wealth and in sustaining and improving the living standards of society. The Advanced Manufacturing Technology & Systems Management course is one of the most well-established of its kind in the UK, and it aims to provide our students with the tools, knowledge and understanding of this broad based discipline that demands expertise in many diverse topics.

Course description

This course evolved from the very successful MSc course in Machine Tool Technology, and is regularly updated in line with subject developments and changing industrial practices. Advanced Manufacturing Technology and Systems Management has developed into a broad based multi-disciplinary field, demanding expertise in many diverse topics. The structure of the course reflects this by requiring in-depth study of a number of topics ranging from the fundamentals of manufacturing processes to the management of manufacturing systems. More specialised study takes place during the dissertation project where students undertake individual research projects of industrial relevance. The MSc course has a strong practical orientation and it aims to produce engineers with the theoretical and practical experience which will enable them to analyse and investigate problems and to engage in design, development and research involving manufacturing technology. The course also prepares graduates for the management of manufacturing systems. Whilst the course is intended primarily for those wishing to pursue an industrial career, it is equally relevant as preparation for research in advanced manufacturing technology and systems management.

Teaching and learning

The Advanced Manufacturing Technology and Systems Management MSc is a full time course which is studied over 12 months and there is one start date each year in September.

Throughout the course you will develop advanced technical skills in both manufacturing technology and systems management, as well as soft skill such as team working, presenting and report writing, all of which will enable you to pursue a career in both general and specialised engineering industries or develop an in-depth knowledge for a career in research in industry or academia.

During the course students have the opportunity to visit a number of companies and attend industrial guest lectures. Past cohorts have visited companies such as Airbus and Jaguar Land Rover, and these visits and lectures not only further enhance our student's understanding of manufacturing but also to give them an insight into the practical application of many of the subject areas they will be studying. Moreover, many of current our dissertation projects originate from, and are run in collaboration with, industry.

Career opportunities

The Advanced Manufacturing Technology and Systems Management MSc has a strong focus on employability, which will give you the best chance of securing your ideal job after graduation. Most academics who teach on this course have strong links with industry, which you will benefit from, not only by having the opportunity to visit a number of companies and attend industrial talks but also to work on a dissertation project that is closely related to an industrial problem.

After graduating with an MSc in Advanced Manufacturing Technology and Systems Management you will be in a strong position to seek employment with companies such as: Rolls Royce, Airbus, BAE Systems, Siemens, Jaguar Land Rover, Bentley Motors, Nissan Motor Company, Bombardier Transportation, to name j
