MSc in Manufacturing Systems Engineering 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.
We will provide you with
Up-to-date knowledge of manufacturing techniques and processes plus applications of technology & 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.
After You Graduate
Graduate from this course can expect to be employed as leaders in general engineering management and manufacturing engineering management.
All courses are structured so that you take a combination of ten modules, complete ten post module assignments and execute a major research project.
All courses start on 30th September and last 12 months.
The Project represents 50% of the Masters credit and students should work on it throughout the year, alongside their modules.
The taught part of the MSc consists of ten modules. Modules are generally taught in intensive one-week blocks from Monday to Friday, 9.00am - 6.30pm. They are taught through a variety of learning activities: lectures, seminar work, syndicate group activities, industrial games, practical exercises and case studies to encourage teamwork and practical grounding of the material. E-learning and forum activities are widely used to complement these activities.
These week long sessions (normally 10 in total over the course of the academic year) are scheduled at intervals from October through to June and attendance is compulsory. Modules are assessed by assignment, not exam.
Core modules are specified for each of the MSc courses and these are the modules you must do. The core modules for each course are listed on the relevant course pages. On some courses it is possible to gain exemption from a core module if you have relevant prior study or work experience in that area. If you are exempted from attendance on a module, you must make up for it by selecting an additional Elective Module. We will explain how to apply for exemption from core modules once you start the course.
In addition to the compulsory core modules you must select additional Elective Modules from this list of modules. You should select sufficient elective modules to bring your total number of modules to ten. For some courses there is a list of recommended electives, but we will try to accommodate your wishes wherever possible. You do not need to select elective modules in advance, we will explain how you choose electives once you start the course in October.
At the end of every module you will be given a post module assignment (PMA). This is a piece of assessed, written work which you must complete in your own time. It should take you 40-60 hours to complete and the submission deadline is four weeks after the end of the module. The assignment is marked by the tutor.
At the same time as the modules and assignments, you must undertake a major individual research project. This is 50% of the overall credit and must be submitted in the form of a dissertation around the end of August. Once you have submitted your dissertation you must attend an oral exam where your Project Supervisor and an independent supervisor will discuss your project with you. Both your dissertation and the oral will be marked.
You do not need to choose your project in advance, you will be provided with a list of projects soon after you start the MSc course. You must choose a project relevant to your degree which is in line with your research interests. All projects are supervised by a WMG member of staff or associate. Many projects relate closely to research developments in industry or research at WMG.
For the award of MSc you must:
You can elect to attend ten modules if you wish, in which case we will generally consider your best nine assignment marks.
For our MSc programmes you should normally have obtained at least the equivalent of a UKsecond class honours degree, or an equivalent qualification in a science, engineering, IT, business or management discipline. There are some exceptions according to specific courses so please see the the individual course pages for entry requirements to your chosen programme.
WMG and University of Warwick have representatives in several countries worldwide. If you are applying from overseas and would like advice or assistance in country, you can find a list of our international representatives here. Of course you can always email our admissions team in the UK for advice too.

*Please note: Whilst scanned copy documents uploaded online can be used to consider your application, should you be made an offer you will be required to supply either the original or valid copies of your degree transcripts/certificates (officially translated if applicable).
Please only apply for ONE of our courses, do not submit multiple applications to WMG. Once accepted onto one MSc course, you can request a switch to another, although restrictions apply.
There is a £35 non-refundable fee which must be paid to the University before your application can be processed.
Studying at Warwick requires a high level of competence in English. If you are a non-native English speaker you must show English test results equivalent to IELTS 6.5 with broadly consistent scores in the elements of the test. We accept IELTS, Pearson Test in English (Academic) and TOEFL (iBT).
We do not recognise any other English testing system and we do not routinely carry out English proficiency interviews as a substitute for English test results.
If you do not quite meet these standards, but have an overall IELTS score of 6.0 (or equivalent), we may be able to offer you a place conditional on you attending a 5 or 10 week pre-sessional English course. Students intending to take the pre-sessional course prior an MSc should still apply to WMG.
If you have undertaken three or more years of academic study in higher education in a predominantly English-speaking country, you may be considered for exemption from these English requirements at our discretion.
We do not normally require English test results from students from Nigeria.
