This MSc programme provides its students with an opportunity to extend the technical knowledge acquired on an undergraduate degree programme in mechanical or manufacturing engineering.
Though not a specialist Master's degree, the programme provides a broad subject-specific curriculum that provides an opportunity for students to tailor the programme to meet their personal needs, with specialism pursued through a major project.
Many of these projects reflect the key research interests of the Department, such as manufacturing, bulk materials handling and instrumentation. However, projects can be selected from across the discipline from a list provided by the Department. Many projects are derived from our industrial links, and a number are proposed by students, reflecting their personal interests or experience.
Research Methodology (15 credits) Strategy and Management (15 credits) Process Improvement Techniques (15 credits) Computer Aided Manufacturing (15 credits) Materials Selection in Mechanical Design (15 credits) Quality Engineering (15 credits) Advanced Principles in Lean Manufacturing (15 credits) Innovative Manufacturing Processes and Techniques (15 credits) Individual Project and Dissertation (60 credits)
Applicants should have:
A degree (2.2 or above) in mechanical or manufacturing engineering or communications engineering/technology, or equivalent qualification.
Students who do not have English as their first language, must have an IELTS score of 6.0 with no skill less than 5.5.
- Students without a first degree but with professional and vocational experience (e.g. incorporated engineer or chartered engineer status) may be considered if they demonstrate the potential to succeed on the programme.
Students are assessed through examinations, case studies, assignments, practical work and a dissertation.
