Current trends are in the development of lean and agile manufacturing systems and their supply chains, the design of web-based manufacturing information systems and the development of consulting skills. Students gain a thorough understanding of the processes, skills and behaviours needed to create and manage competitive manufacturing operations. It concentrates on industrially relevant projects, team working, and transferable skills. This MSc course is accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) for meeting the ?further learning requirements? for Chartered Engineer registration. Students benefit from dedicated state-of the-art facilities, including cutting-edge manufacturing laboratories, specialist software for discrete event simulation, statistical analysis, systems analysis and preparation of multimedia task support systems. We achieve our course objectives through a carefully integrated and structured series of eight one-week assessed modules, a group project and an individual project. The modules Modules include lectures and tutorials and are assessed through written examinations and assignments. Covering both the technical aspects and training in technology management and transferable skills, they provide the ?tools? required for the group and individual projects. ? Enterprise Systems ? General Management ? Manufacturing Strategy ? Manufacturing Systems Engineering ? Management of Technology and Innovation ? Operations Analysis ? Operations Management ? Supply Chain Management Group project The group project provides students with the opportunity to take responsibility for a consultancy type project, while working under academic supervision. Success is dependent on the integration of various activities and working within agreed objectives, deadlines and budgets. Experience gained is highly valued by both students and prospective employers. For part-time students a dissertation usually replaces the group project. Individual project Students select the individual project in consultation with the Course Director. The individual project provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to carry out independent research, think and work in an original way, contribute to knowledge, and overcome genuine manufacturing problems. Many of the projects are supported by external organisations. Suitable for graduates keen to develop skills and knowledge in the design and operation of modern manufacturing systems and supply chains. The part-time option will enable practitioners to extend their professional development within their current employment. Takes you on to a wide range of manufacturing and associated roles such as management, operations, logistics, IT and consultancy within organisations throughout the world. Many graduates find employment with one of their project sponsors.
