Course content

This course will provide you with up-to-date knowledge of manufacturing techniques and processes plus applications of technology and quality tools and techniques to improve operations in the organisation. You will develop an understanding of the concepts of manufacturing systems engineering, product and process development with an awareness of strategic management and operations.

Course structure:

The course is modular - each student takes a combination of core and elective modules. 9 modules are studied and assessed in total. Modules consist of nominally 40 hours directed tuition in the form of lectures, seminars, group work, presentations, case studies and e-learning. This is covered in a full-immersion, intensive week.

Modules are assessed by Post Module Assignment - this is typically a further 40 -60 hours of work.

The taught modules account for 50% of the Master's degree. A major individual research project, submitted in the form of a dissertation accounts for the other 50%. This should take approximately 900 hours of study time. An oral examination is held upon completion.

The core modules for this MSc include:

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

And one module from:

  • Automation and Robotics
  • Machining Technology
  • Advanced Materials and Processes
  • The Virtual Factory

One elective module can also be chosen - a full list of elective modules is available on the website.

Project

The project that is worth 50% of the overall grade and supports you in developing your personal research skills. Projects for students on Manufacturing Systems Engineering should be centred around manufacturing systems or manufacturing technologies and their management.

After you Graduate

Graduate from this course can expect to be employed as leaders in general engineering management and manufacturing engineering management.
