Course content

The global manufacturing sector is going through an important phase of digitalisation, driven by the changes brought by the 4th Industrial Revolution. This is impacting on how many manufacturing organisations organise their businesses and the technologies that drive it.

This has led to the need to develop new type of engineers for working in these new areas where significant advances in automation and digital manufacturing are taking place.

Many organisations are using automation to drive up productivity and implementing digital technologies in their operations. By combining the two, we are seeing very different approaches to how manufacturing organisations run their factories and businesses and also benefiting from better planning and decision-making using technologies such as Digital Twins.

The MSc Automation and Digital Manufacturing is designed to provide these new approaches which are highly sought after by organisations on a global scale. To ensure the course content remains current, the programme has been designed to benefit from strong industry partnerships with companies such as Siemens and Festo. The course also benefits directly from this relationship by being a founding member of the Connected Curriculum project devised by these two organisations, bringing industry practices to academic courses.
