Manufacturing underpins the success of the economy. The rise of the 4th industrial revolution produces new and exciting business opportunities globally. Choose from optional modules to specialise your study. Cover the breadth of both technical and business skills in order to make a real impact in your chosen career.
Manufacturing technologies are responsible for the delivery of next-generation products impacting sectors such as automotive and aerospace. You will learn from experts in the fields of composites, coatings, metrology and management to name but a few, providing you with the technical knowledge to deliver and support new product development.
Our group and thesis projects are industrially linked, requiring you to apply your taught knowledge to solve a ‘real-life’ industrial challenge. You will have the opportunity to be supervised by a world leading academic in this area.
The MSc course comprises eight assessed modules (four core and four elective), in which students gain an understanding of world-class manufacturing technology and management practice, a group project and an individual project.
A first or second class UK honours degree or equivalent in mathematics, physics, computer science or an engineering discipline, or those with relevant industrial experience such as qualified engineers working with computational methods wishing to extend their knowledge.
