Course content

About the course

This course is run in collaboration with the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), a world-class centre for advanced machining and materials research. It covers the latest advances in manufacturing technology.

Subject areas include: work holding, measurement and assembly, materials science solutions, and novel manufacturing techniques and processes. You’ll also learn about the management of manufacturing innovation, from identifying products and processes through to integration.

Go further with an MSc(Res)

Our MSc(Research) courses go further than a standard MSc. The research project part of the course is roughly 50 per cent larger so you can explore your subject in more depth. You can also take taught modules that will help you with your project. You’ll have regular contact with at least two academics: your personal tutor and project supervisor.

Your career

Our courses are designed to prepare you for a career in industry. You’ll get plenty of practical research experience, as well as training in research methods and management. Recent graduates now work for Arup, Rolls-Royce and Network Rail.

A world-famous department

This is one of the largest, most respected mechanical engineering departments in the UK. Our reputation for excellence attracts world-class staff and students. They’re involved in projects like improving car designs and designing jaw replacements – projects that make a difference.

Our world-famous research centres include the Insigneo Institute, where we’re revolutionising the treatment of disease, and the Centre for Advanced Additive Manufacturing. We also work closely with the University’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC).

Support for international students

Our students come from all over the world. We’ll help you get to know the department and the city. Your personal tutor will support you throughout your course and we can help you with your English if you need it.

Labs and equipment

We’ve just refurbished a large section of our lab space and invested over £350,000 in equipment including new fatigue testing facilities, a CNC milling centre, a laser scanning machine and a 3D printer.
