Takes you on to
Successful students go on to a wide range of careers in manufacturing, logistics, IT, business systems analysis, manufacturing management consultancy, research and development, and academia. Opportunities are diverse and international, with graduates progressing to senior positions in industry.
You will be taught by Industry practitioners teach alongside a wide range of subject specialists from the academic community at Cranfield. In addition, group and individual thesis projects are often supported by industry.
The Engineering and Management of Manufacturing Systems postgraduate programme has been designed and developed in conjunction with the manufacturing industry to develop the expertise of graduates coming into the sector, as well as graduate level personnel working in companies. The course provides a thorough understanding of the processes,skills and behaviours needed to create and manage competitive manufacturing operations. It majors on industrially relevant projects, team working, and transferable skills. Many graduates take on appointments with a wide range of manufacturers or, increasingly, apply their skills to other sectors from financial services through to health care. This option is a well established course, having run for over 20 years, and is therefore well known, respected, and has a growing Alumni.
A dynamic element of the Manufacturing MSc programme is the project work undertaken by students. The Cranfield-Industry Team Project is an applied multidisciplinary group based activity. It provides students with the opportunity - while working in teams under academic supervision - to take responsibility for an industrially orientated consultancy type project. Success is dependent on the integration of various activities and working within agreed objectives, deadlines and budgets.
Individual thesis project
The individual research project is either industrially or Cranfield University driven. Students select the individual project in consultation with the Course Director. It provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate independent research ability, the ability to think and work in an original way, contribute to knowledge, and overcome genuine problems in manufacturing. The projects are sponsored by industrial organisations.

The course comprises eight assessed modules, a group project and an individual research project.
The modules include lectures and tutorials, and are assessed through practical work, written examinations, case studies, essays, presentations and tests. These provide the 'tools' required for the group and individual projects.
The three elements of the course are assessed as follows:
Taught modules: 40%
Group projects: 20%*
Individual project: 40%
*For part-time students a dissertation can replace the group project. The full-time course is of 12 months' duration. The modular format of the taught element permits a high degree of flexibility of attendance at Cranfield for part-time students who may commence the course at any time during the year.
Part-time programmes are structured in a similar way to the full-time programme and comprise eight one-week assessed modules, a group project (or dissertation), and an individual project, which results in the production of a thesis. Part-time students are normally expected to complete their MSc in two to five years. The modular nature of the programmes allows students a degree of flexibility in the number and order of modules completed each year. Students may commence the course at any time during the year. Please refer to our Part-time MSc programmes page for further information.
