This course is structured around the engineering capabilities that graduates require, rather than traditional academic sub-disciplines. Join a vibrant and active research community.
Our Manufacturing Engineering degree is based on mechanical engineering fundamentals combined with specialist modules in Automated Production and Advanced Manufacturing.
In addition to fundamental elements such as mechanics, materials, CAD/CAE/CAM and operations management, you’ll also develop skills in user needs and business plan development.
You’ll develop project work which presents an opportunity to integrate learning across the course. The MEng includes a higher-level project that enables you to apply your knowledge at a professional level, and a group project where you’ll demonstrate your ability to thrive within a team environment – a crucial skill that is highly valued in industry.
