You should have obtained the minimum of a UK second class honours degree (or equivalent) in engineering.
Manufacturing Systems Engineering and Management is designed for engineering graduates interested in manufacturing systems and operations management. The course is suitable for engineers already working in industry and wanting to make the transition to engineering manager, and for recent graduates looking to fast-track their career in order to take a leading role within the manufacturing sector. Approximately half of the student cohort have prior work experience. Whilst this is beneficial, it is not essential and we are pleased to accept highly motivated recent graduates.
Months of entry
As products become increasingly complex, so do the manufacturing systems required to produce them. MSEM is about designing and managing the most efficient means of production, in order to make the best products.
Our MSc in Manufacturing Systems Engineering and Management is designed for engineering graduates interested in manufacturing systems and operations management.
This course combines value creation with strategic development in a manufacturing environment, providing you with the latest manufacturing techniques and processes. We work at the forefront of emerging technologies, and through collaborative R&D with industry partners we drive the transfer of knowledge into new areas.
As an MSEM student, you will benefit from much of the dynamic research carried out in the areas of advanced materials and processes, additive layer manufacturing, automation and robotics, machining technology, and digital manufacturing.
You will develop an understanding of the concepts of manufacturing engineering systems and the skills to analyse, design, and implement these systems in practice. You will also gain an understanding of strategic and operational management and learn how to apply technology, quality tools, and specific techniques in order to improve operations.
Throughout the year, you will be introduced to state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, technology, and materials in our world class Engineering Hall and International Institute for Nanocomposites Manufacturing.
