Program Description

This BEng and integrated Master’s course has been designed and is delivered in partnership with Unipart Manufacturing Group as part of a £32 million collaborative project. The course aims to develop the next generation of highly skilled, specialist engineers for the UK's high-value manufacturing sector. The project was awarded a prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize in 2019.

Manufacturing contributes £6.7 trillion to the global economy and the UK is currently the 11th largest manufacturing nation in the world, accounting for 54% of exports and directly employing 2.6 million people. Fierce global competition, however, is creating an even greater demand for graduate engineers capable of adopting innovative product designs and manufacturing methods in industries as diverse as food processing and household appliances to automotive and aerospace.

Coventry is ranked 3rd in the UK for ‘Mechanical Engineering’ courses in the Guardian University Guide 2020, which includes this Manufacturing Engineering degree. This course offers full-time study and on successful completion you could obtain either a 3-year BEng qualification or a 4-year MEng qualification.

Through our ‘Faculty on the Factory Floor’ at the Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (AME), you will have the opportunity to gain industrial experience, applying your knowledge and learning to real ‘live’ industrial problems in each year of the degree programme.

This degree also aims to provide you with the opportunity to access directly Unipart's operations, working on some of their 'live' issues in a real-world manufacturing production environment, as well as being able to access the University’s modern High Performance Engineering Centre.
