As products become increasingly complex, so do the manufacturing systems required to produce them. MSEM is about designing and managing the most efficient means of production, in order to make the best products.
MSEM is designed for engineering graduates interested in manufacturing systems and operations management. The course is suitable for engineers already working in industry and wanting to make the transition to engineering manager, and for recent graduates looking to fast-track their career in order to take a leading role within the manufacturing sector. Approximately 50% of students have work experience before joining this programme. Whilst this is beneficial, it is not essential and we are pleased to accept highly motivated recent graduates.
What will the course provide?
This course combines value creation with strategic development in a manufacturing environment, providing you with the latest manufacturing techniques and processes. We work at the forefront of emerging technologies, and through collaborative R&D with industry partners we drive the transfer of knowledge into new areas. As an MSEM student, you will benefit from much of the dynamic research carried out in the areas of advanced materials and processes, additive layer manufacturing, automation and robotics, machining technology, and digital manufacturing.
You will develop an understanding of the concepts of manufacturing engineering systems and the skills to analyse, design, and implement these systems in practice. You will also gain an understanding of strategic and operational management and learn how to apply technology, quality tools, and specific techniques in order to improve operations.
Throughout the year, you will be introduced to state-of-the-art manufacturing processes, technology, and materials in our world class Engineering Hall and International Institute for Nanocomposites Manufacturing.
If you can gain exemption from some of the core modules because of prior experience or qualifications, then you may choose more electives.
You will need to choose one elective modules from the module list*, which should be chosen to supplement your core modules above (subject to availability). *Important, please note: the list relates to modules available in 2017/18 academic year, and should be regarded as an illustrative guide to modules available in future years.
You are required to pass nine modules in total as part of this Master's course.
The project that is worth 50% of the overall grade and supports you in developing your personal research skills. Projects for students on Manufacturing Systems Engineering and Management should be centred around manufacturing systems or manufacturing technologies and their management.
Taught material is a blend of formal lectures, seminars and practical exercises and case studies to encourage teamwork and practical grounding of the material. Module leaders are experts in their fields and are supported by external speakers working in organisations at the forefront of their fields. Industrial visits are available to all students and the course is assessed through assignments.
After you graduate
Graduates from this course can expect to be employed as leaders in general engineering management and manufacturing engineering management.
Some of our recent MSE graduates are now working roles and companies such as:
Site Manufacturing Improvement Manager (British Nuclear Group), Project Engineer (Beijing Automotive Centre, China), Manufacturing Manager (AWE), Production Planner (Colgate Palmolive, Greece), Project Engineer (Aruna ALloy Steels PVT Ltd, India), DVD Coordinator (Jaguar Land Rover), Materials Supply Chain Optimisation Manager (Tractors and Farm Equipment Ltd), Lead Engineer (TVS Motor Company)
