Course Summary

Why this course?

Manufacturing and engineering are thriving sectors at the heart of the UK economy. They generate jobs, promote economic growth and increase global trade.

Manufacturing engineers therefore play a vital role in integrating technology and management within the sector to achieve added value and deliver superior performance.

This course is designed for:

  • graduates with experience in manufacturing, engineering, design or business who wish to develop their manufacturing expertise. This course is ideal for graduates wishing to transfer smoothly and effectively to a career in the manufacturing sector of industry
  • established manufacturing engineers, designers and managers working in the industry who are facing new challenges and increased areas of responsibility. New disruptive technologies also present a significant opportunity for existing professionals to further develop their career in advanced manufacturing technology systems.

What you'll study

This course will prepare students for industrial careers within a reinvigorated global manufacturing sector.

At the end of the course you'll have a greater understanding of the methods, tools and techniques relating to advanced manufacturing technology and systems.

You'll be able to apply your knowledge and skills by taking part in projects to solve some of the technological problems currently faced by industry.

Industrial experience

During the programme, you'll undertake an individual and group project.

For group projects, you'll have the opportunity to work with fellow students and an industrial client to address a practical problem. You'll gain direct industry experience to add to your CV, develop skills, manage a project through to completion and practice working in a multidisciplinary group preparing you for collaborative work throughout your future career.

Accreditation: Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), Institution of Engineering Designers (IED), Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).

Students will also achieve PgDip exit awards during this course.

Careers

We work closely with the University's Careers Service. They offer advice and guidance on career planning and looking for and applying for jobs. In addition they administer and publicise graduate and work experience opportunities.

Modules

The aim of the individual project is to allow students to combine the skills learned in other modules of the course and apply them within a significant project in a specific area of design, manufacture, or engineering management. This will be achieved through students carrying out work into a particular topic relating to their course and preparing a dissertation that documents the project. On completion of the module the student is expected to be able to: Define a valid project in a cutting-edge field of study relevant to the student?s degree ? with an appropriate methodology and work plan for the project Plan, manage and complete project, involving where appropriate technical analysis and independent critical thinking. This involves giving a thorough, logical and critical review of the subject matter; using appropriate tools, processes and levels of analysis in the project and applying project management techniques to manage a successful project Document their project using suitable presentation techniques (such as language, figures, writing, layout, structure etc.); showing clear evidence of the value of the project and its outcomes and describing the project with clarity.
