You will acquire comprehensive knowledge and understanding of key scientific principles, theories and practice, and their intelligent application to problems within modern manufacturing industry. The course focuses on manufacturing philosophies that reflect leading industrial practice, and the application of the latest computer-aided engineering systems to achieve enhanced and sustainable manufacturing performance.
Driven by the School's internationally recognised research, the course draws upon expertise in areas such as aerospace composites, polymers, advanced metal forming, medical devices, biomedical engineering, and nanotechnology.
Build skills and knowledge in the core areas of computer-aided engineering for managers, manufacturing systems and quality with the opportunity to specialise in materials, nanotechnology, electronics, finite element, and biomaterials. Part-time students who are in full-time employment can obtain credit for work-based activity in the work-based learning modules. A significant number of students come from local engineering companies and the course content is suitable for engineering or science graduates looking to improve their employment prospects.
Work placement / study abroad
Part-time students can undertake work based learning modules.

To apply to our postgraduate taught programmes, you must meet the University's General Entrance Requirements and any course-specific requirements.
These vary depending on the course and are detailed online.
PgDip - Normally, an Honours or non-Honours degree or postgraduate diploma/certificate in a relevant engineering, technology or science discipline. In exceptional circumstances, where an individual has substantial and significant working/industrial experience, a portfolio of written evidence may be considered as an alternative entrance route. It is possible to transfer onto the MSc version of the course after successfully completing the PGDip.
MSc - Specific details on the admission criteria can be found at the course webpage provided below. Normally, a second class honours degree or better in a relevant engineering, science, physics or technology discipline. Or a postgraduate diploma/certificate in a relevant engineering or technology discipline. In exceptional circumstances, where an individual has substantial and significant working/industrial experience, a portfolio of written evidence may be considered as an alternative entrance route.
If English is not your first language this course requires a minimum English level of IELTS (academic) 6.0 with no band score less than 5.5, or equivalent.
