The structure of the programme reflects this by requiring in-depth study of a number of topics ranging from the fundamentals of manufacturing processes to the management of manufacturing systems. More specialised study takes place in the dissertation project where students undertake individual research projects of industrial relevance.
The programme has a strong practical orientation and it aims to produce engineers with the theoretical and practical experience to enable them to analyse and investigate problems and to engage in design, development and research involving manufacturing technology and in the management of manufacturing systems. Whilst the programme is intended primarily for those wishing to pursue an industrial career, it is equally relevant as preparation for research in advanced manufacturing technology and systems management.
Throughout the course you will develop advanced technical skills in both manufacturing technology and systems management, as well as soft skill such as team working, presenting and report writing, all of which will enable you to pursue a career in both general and specialised engineering industries or develop an in-depth knowledge for a career in research in industry or academia.
