Course Content

As a full-time student of this postgraduate engineering degree, you will study four modules in the first term, and four in the second. You will then spend four months working on your dissertation. This involves an in-depth study of a manufacturing problem or situation, requiring a high standard of investigation and presentation. The analysis of a ‘real’ industrial problem is expected, frequently involving a company or workplace.

Curriculum

Manufacturing Systems, Design and Economics

This module aims to meet the growing need of manufacturing industry for graduates with very high levels of knowledge and skills in advanced manufacturing processes, design of manufacturing systems and management of production facilities, including the understanding of materials and their properties in relation to production processes, the design of products for automated manufacture, advanced, automated production and assembly systems, and advanced and micro manufacturing and production processes.

Systems Modelling and Simulation

This module aims to encourage systematic thinking and acquiring knowledge and skills to model and analyse modern complex systems.

Robotics and Manufacturing Automation

This module aims to provide an understanding and critical awareness to designing and controlling modern automated manufacturing systems, and employs a systems approach in doing so. The module provides an exposure to a variety of industrial and factory automation practices and also an understanding in selecting appropriate automation and control methods for the equipment or process at hand.

Sustainable Design and Manufacture

This module aims to provide students with methods for analysing sustainability in design, quantifying the quality parameters, calculating and assigning appropriate tolerances, analysing the manufacturing operations for achieving the required quality targets. The emphasis will be on the link between design information and manufacturing operations to produce products and propose operations that reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing.

Computer Aided Engineering 1

This module aims to give the students the knowledge to model the entities, points, edges, surfaces and solids for CAE and the skill to create the computer model of a part or assembly using a contemporary CAE software package (CATIA), and to educate the students in the theory and application of Mechanism Synthesis and Analysis and to equip the students with the skill of modelling mechanisms using the MATLAB and Simulink software packages.

Advanced Measurement Systems and Data Analysis

This module aims to help students to gain an in-depth knowledge of basic measurement theory, operating principle of modern measurement techniques, capabilities of practical measuring machines and advanced data analysis.

Dissertation

The dissertation aims to help students develop their problem solving, communication and project management skills to work independently in consultation with their academic supervisor and carry out in-depth investigation of a suitable topic relevant to the course.

Careers

Our graduates are ready to become:

  • leading engineers
  • researchers
  • project leaders
  • entrepreneurs in manufacturing industry
  • research organisations and universities
