Our team at the School of Engineering, Technology and Design is committed to providing you with a broad base to increase the employability and long-term career prospects of MSc Advanced Manufacturing students, locally and globally in sectors including the automotive and aerospace industries and in companies that utilise 3D metal printing and micro machining. The development of the MSc Advanced Manufacturing and Technology and associated Robotics route with industry partners also means that students will graduate as industry ready engineers.
The awards embrace the latest advances in research and development and offer students a variety of practical and workshop-based learning opportunities which use authentic industry projects and challenges so that students are exposed to the various dimensions of front-line engineering that they will experience in the workplace.
We have 2 programme routes which provides in-depth learning in multidisciplinary subject areas such as advanced manufacturing processes, management of advanced manufacturing systems and mechanical manufacturing, each route provides specialist learning in:
- Advanced Manufacturing and Design
- Robotics and Smart Mechatronics
Each programme will be in 3 trimesters. Trimester 1 & 2 will be taught modules and hand in practice laboratory experiments and Trimester 3 will be focused on research project and dissertation/thesis. Below is the overview of each trimester break down:
MSc of Advanced Manufacturing Systems and Technology with Robotics (All compulsory):
- Advanced Manufacturing Systems and Technology
- Smart Mechatronics Systems and Design
- Robot Kinematics and Dynamics
- Industry 4.0/5.0
- AI for Data Intelligence
- International Project Management
- Professional Research Methods and Project
Your welcome and induction will be w/c 19th September 2022 - we look forward to meeting you then.
