Course content

The MSc in Engineering and Management of Manufacturing Systems has been designed and developed in conjunction with the manufacturing industry to develop the expertise of graduates coming into the sector, as well as graduate level personnel working in companies. The course provides a thorough understanding of the processes, skills and behaviours needed to create and manage competitive manufacturing operations. It majors on industrially relevant projects, team working, and transferable skills. Many graduates take on appointments with a wide-range of manufacturers or, increasingly, apply their skills to other sectors from financial services through to health care. This is a well established course, having run for over 20 years, and is therefore well known, respected, and has a growing Alumni.
