The MSc in Manufacturing Systems Engineering and Management is designed for engineering graduates interested in manufacturing systems and operations management. It is suitable for engineers working in industry who want to make the transition to engineering manager and is also suitable for graduates with little or no work experience. 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.
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:
- Industrial Engineering
- Manufacturing Process Technology
- Operations Strategy for Industry
- Quality, Reliability and Maintenance
- Project Planning, Management and Control
- Logistics and Operations Management
And two modules from:
- Automation and Robotics
- Machining Technology
- Advanced Manufacturing Processes
- The Virtual Factory
- Problem Solving with Statistics
Plus one elective module can also be chosen - a full list of elective modules is available on the website.
Please note: Our course and module content and schedule is continually reviewed and updated to reflect the latest research expertise at Warwick, so it is therefore very important that you check the website for the latest information before you apply and when you accept an offer.
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.
The MSc in Manufacturing Systems Engineering is accredited by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) as fulfilling the educational requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer when presented with a CEng accredited Bachelors programme (or equivalent prior learning). Note that in all cases your MSc project must be suitably technical in nature and specific modules must be undertaken within the course. Please see our website for details and conditions.
IET accreditation is subject to renewal in 2018
After you Graduate
Graduate from this course can expect to be employed as leaders in general engineering management and manufacturing engineering management.
