Course content

Designed for

MSEM 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.

What the course will provide

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.

Course structure and assessment

The curriculum is divided in nine taught modules (eight core modules, and one elective module) and the project. After each taught module, you will complete a post-module assignment. Your project is worth 50% of your final grade and supports you in developing your personal research skills. For MSEM students, this should be centred on manufacturing systems or manufacturing technologies and their management. Projects will often focus on manufacturing processes, process planning and improvement, or machining and machine tools.

Modules

  • Industrial Engineering
  • Manufacturing Process Technology
  • Operations Strategy for Industry
  • Quality, Reliability and Maintenance
  • Project Planning, Management and Control
  • Logistics and Operations Management

Plus two from the following list:

  • Automation and Robotics
  • Machining Technology
  • Advanced Materials and Processes
  • The Virtual Factory
  • Problem Solving with Statistics

In addition to the above compulsory modules, one elective module must be chosen from the full module list on our website.

Future career prospects

As a graduate of MSEM, you can expect to be employed as a leader in general or manufacturing engineering management.
