Course content

Our MSc manufacturing engineering programme is designed to prepare you for an effective career as a technologist or manager who can meet the engineering, business and societal challenges of rapidly changing global manufacturing markets and industries.

Accredited by The Institution of Mechanical Engineers and The Institution of Engineering and Technology, this master's is primarily designed to prepare you for an industrial career but is equally relevant as preparation for further research study (eg through a PhD).

Modules are directly informed by both our close industry links and our research expertise in areas including rapid manufacturing, laser processing and automation.

We are engaged in a large portfolio of high-quality research in many areas of core mechanical engineering aspects. In recognition of the research carried out, the School has received a Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education. As a student within the School of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering, you will have access to a range of state-of-the-art equipment. Our computer labs are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and include some of the latest industry standard software including STAR-CCM and CAD.

We have high-tech laboratories devoted to:

  • dynamics and control
  • electronics
  • fluid mechanics
  • materials
  • mechatronics
  • metrology
  • optical engineering
  • structural integrity
  • thermodynamics.

Who should study this programme?

Our master's in manufacturing engineering is aimed at both new graduates and engineering professionals who wish to develop the highly valued knowledge and skills of manufacturing management and its application to wide ranging manufacturing technologies.
