Course content

If you’d like to pursue a managerial role in factory operations, this MSc in Production Engineering could help you take that next step up.

Figures from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show the UK’s industrial sector has increased by 1.4% a year since 1948. In our increasingly competitive global marketplace, modern manufacturing companies are being placed under even greater pressure to reduce the time and cost of producing high quality products.

To respond effectively to these challenging market requirements, there is a growing demand for highly trained individuals with skills and expertise across engineering, business and management. This Master’s course is designed to meet that need, developing multidisciplinary production engineers capable of designing lean and competitive manufacturing facilities and delivering operational excellence.

Ranked in the UK’s top 2 for ‘Mechanical Engineering’ subjects (Guardian University Guide 2018), Coventry University has a reputation for teaching excellence and a proud history of educating engineers who work in manufacturing across many different industry sectors – automotive, mechanical, process industries (e.g. cement), aerospace, consumer products and complex engineering systems. Our extensive industry links include Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan, MIRA, BAE System and Unipart, with whom we partnered to launch the £32 million Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (AME) – the UK’s first ‘Faculty on the floor’.

You will be encouraged to become student members of the IET or IMechE and support presentations and activities by the regional committees. During the course, you will also systematically record achievement of professional competences, which is required along with an accredited degree programme to seek professional registration at either Chartered Engineer (CEng) or Incorporated Engineer (IEng) level.
