Manufacturing Engineering

This programme aims to train highly skilled engineers in the techniques of manufacturing engineering and its related technologies. It will provide effective careers for managers who can meet challenges in a rapidly changing global manufacturing industry. The programme will also enhance the ability of current or potential engineers to increase the performance and profitability of engineering and manufacturing companies operating in the context of the global business environment through the use of modern design techniques, manufacturing technologies and management philosophies.

Entry requirements

Applicants will normally be required to have an 2.1 (or better) Honours degree in a subject broadly related to the science and engineering disciplines. English competence for international applicants should be in-line with university requirements for Master's level taught degrees (IELTS currently 6.5 in all aspects). International students will require approval from the Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS). This will help to stop the spread of knowledge and skills that could be used in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their means of delivery. The ATAS is specifically designed to ensure that those applying for postgraduate study in certain sensitive subjects do not acquire knowledge that could potentially be used in WMD programmes.

Course modules

Manufacturing processes and technology; lean and agile manufacturing; advanced manufacturing for automotive and aerospace sectors; project management tools and techniques; sustainability and life cycle engineering; research methods; postgraduate dissertation.
