The MSc Manufacturing Engineering and Management provides graduates with a broad knowledge and understanding of advanced manufacturing technology, manufacturing management and human factors relevant to industry. The degree covers many aspects of industrial engineering and industrial management and is designed for students who want to appreciate how engineering and management are integrated so that the productivity of industrial and engineering companies is improved, the costs of manufacture are reduced and products and services are delivered when required.
The wide range of optional modules will enable you to develop your interests in specific areas of manufacturing such as sustainable and additive manufacturing, operations management including supply chain management and quality as well as ergonomics and human factors.
The Centre for English Language Education (CELE) runs a 5-week Engineering English language and study skills course. This course isdesigned in collaboration with the Faculty of Engineering to prepare students going onto engineering programmes.
If you are close to the English language level you need to go on to your MSc course and you meet the entry requirements for the relevant CELE course, you may be eligible for a joint offer. This means that:
For more details, please visit the CELE website or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The course consists of 120 credits of taught modules and a 60 credit independent research project undertaken over the summer term. Students must take 6 core modules, totalling 70 credits and 5 elective modules, totalling 50 credits.
Following the successful completion of the taught modules, a major individual project is undertaken over three months in the summer. The project is supervised by a member of academic staff from the department and enables each student to work on a research or industrial area within manufacturing technology or human factors in manufacturing.
Typical projects may involve development of additive manufacturing processes, design and manufacture of aerospace fixtures, analysis of novel machining and forming processes etc. Course teaching involves lectures, industrial visits, seminars, practicals, tutorials and project work. Assessment of individual modules takes different forms, including formal examinations (usually at the end of the semester in which the module is run), essays, group and individual reports and oral presentations, project reports and other assignments to be submitted during the semester.

Following graduation 20% of students apply for and are accepted onto PhD study at Nottingham in or at other Universities. The MSc degree is not an automatic path to PhD study and it is usual to apply during the autumn semester.
Manufacturing engineers are employed in a wide range of industrial sectors from aerospace and automotive to pharmaceutical and food. Recent graduates have been employed at Rolls-Royce, Airbus, Unilever and Atkins.
Availability for employment and salary data for this department is not attainable due to a small sample size.*
