Course description

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 and improving the living standards of society. The Advanced Manufacturing Technology & Systems Management course 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 broad based discipline that demands expertise in many diverse topics.  

This course is one of the most well-established of its kind in the UK, having evolved from the very successful MSc course 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 broad based multi-disciplinary field, demanding expertise in many diverse topics. The structure of the course 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 during the dissertation project where students undertake individual research projects of industrial relevance. The MSc course has a strong practical orientation and it aims to produce engineers with the theoretical and practical experience which will enable them to analyse and investigate problems and to engage in design, development and research involving manufacturing technology. The course also prepares graduates for the management of manufacturing systems. Whilst the course 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.
