About

In today's uncertain global competition platform and economy, manufacturing and engineering are two of the most important pinnacles for a sustainable growth of any country. Many engineering companies require graduates who can demonstrate not only technological, but also managerial and entrepreneurial skill sets. You will be taught how to select advanced manufacturing processes and materials when making new products, and how to turn innovative ideas into real products quickly, timely and within the constraints of available resources, enhancing your employability.

The MSc will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng(Hons) accredited for CEng, will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration.

  • A balanced syllabus blends aspects of technology and management to create a unique skill set, which is much sought after in industry.

  • Academic teaching is also complemented by expert speakers from industry, keeping you up to date with the challenges and developments in the real world.

  • Many modules are supported by practical workshops using the latest equipment and software. Such practical skills can easily be transferred into the working environment.

You will learn how to analyse complex technical problems and challenges faced by many real-world engineering companies of different sizes. You will also study the operational issues experienced by these companies through real case studies, and how to implement logical solutions under different scenarios. In addition, you will be able to measure the potentials of an engineering company not just through its technological adaptation but also from the entrepreneur viewpoint.

Throughout the course, you will have many hands-on sessions to practise what you have learned in the classroom. These practical skills will be obtained through using specialist software and hardware in engineering functions analysis, CAD/CAM, finite element modelling, operation management, quality analysis, business decision modelling, supply chain management and resources simulation. The project dissertation will allow you to develop a chosen field of knowledge which will complement your career ambition. Teamwork, group presentations, case studies and industrial speakers are other highlights of the course, enhancing your learning experience and employability.
