Course description

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.
