About

This programme is one of the most well-established of its kind in the UK, having evolved from the very successful MSc programme in Machine Tool Technology, and is regularly updated in line with subject developments and changing industrial practices.Advanced Manufacturing Technology and Systems Management has developed into a broadly based multi-disciplinary discipline, demanding expertise in many diverse topics.

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.

Programme Structure

Manufacturing is at the heart of engineering, as everything in our daily lives needs to be made. Manufacturing engineers therefore play a vital role in the creation of wealth and in sustaining or improving the living standards of society. The Advanced Manufacturing Technology & Systems Management programme is one of the most well-established of its kind in the UK, and it aims to provide our students with the tools, knowledge and understanding of this broadly based multi-disciplinary discipline that demands expertise in many diverse topics.

Coursework and assessment

The taught element of the programme is assessed by means of coursework and on completion of the course units you are formally assessed through written examinations. Following successful completion of the taught part of the programme you proceed to the dissertation part of the programme, lasting between five and six months.

Course unit details

The programme is organised on a modular basis, with modules covering the broad areas of manufacturing technology and computing, and systems and management. Students are required to take the eight compulsory modules, which are:

  • 3D Product Modelling, Reverse Engineering & Rapid Manufacture

  • Advanced Machining Technology

  • Manufacturing & Management Systems

  • Research Methods

  • CIM & E-Manufacture

  • Advanced Manufacturing Processes

  • Robotics, Metrology and Modelling of Materials in Manufacture

  • Micro and Nano-Fabrication

The material is presented through lectures, laboratories and small projects of an individual or group nature. Much of the laboratory and project work enables students to gain `hands-on' experience. At the final stage of the MSc, the dissertation project takes a variety of forms and may be of an analytical, computational, design or experimental nature. The majority of the projects are linked to longer term ongoing research programmes, and some projects are carried out in close collaboration with industry.
