Course summary

This course provides a great opportunity for STEM graduates to become valuable Industry 4.0/5.0 engineers with skills sets that support industry to grow and accelerate into economic recovery.


Investing in advanced manufacturing systems and technology enables industry to progress and face unprecedented situations. This has been evident during the coronavirus pandemic and the World Economic Forum (2020) identified companies who invested in this technology were more able to:

Adapt quickly to the current crisis, flip to new business opportunities and support Governments through the pandemic.
Ensure business resilience through the use of advanced manufacturing technologies.
Readily support safe COVID-19 manufacturing practices.

The MSc Advanced Manufacturing and Technology provides postgraduate provision that supports professional learning to support industries shift to advanced manufacturing as this is evidently the answer to supporting and accelerating the long-term economic recovery of industry to full capacity manufacture. The MSc has the potential to support engineering enterprise and regional businesses recovery from two factors BREXIT and COVID-19.

On-shoring manufacturing in the UK reduces the complexity and cost of the BREXIT trade deal with the EU and the rules of origin.
Reduces costs now associated with importing manufactured goods from China, the result of disruption to manufacturing and shipping due to COVID-19.
Advanced manufacturing operations assist in resolving the challenges of implementing social distance shift patterns without additional costs; staffing and other overhead constraints of diversified industrial sectors (local and global).

How you’ll be assessed

You will be assessed by both coursework and computer based assessments, essentially the programme is 100% coursework assessment. The coursework assessments will enable you to demonstrate the development of your key scientific and transferable skills. The course typically consists of coursework assessments submissions of (but not exclusive): computer scientific lab, logbooks, on-line quizzes, written reports, written scientific papers, discursive essays, stand-alone video presentations, walkthroughs, digital artefacts and poster presentations, professional portfolio.

Your future career

MSc Advanced Manufacturing and Technology has the potential to support postgraduate career opportunities. After graduating from this programme, the job profile of the students will be diversified over several engineering fields such as:

Bringing new products and technologies to market, which is increasing the focus on business development skills among senior managers.
Research and Development (R&D) section, which is stimulating demand for highly skilled graduates and increasing collaboration between advanced manufacturing research centres and industry.
Taking advantage of potentially transformative enabling technologies, such as 3D visualisation, analysis and printing, composites, which could potentially transform the manufacturing sector in near future.
Government and environmental agencies value advanced manufacturing to identify the opportunities to meet low carbon policies and legislation, which is increasing investment in energy efficient technologies and driving research in lightweight materials.
Sales and marketing engineering products as export opportunities, which is considered a major growth opportunity for UK manufacturers.
Leading and managing the efficient and effective management of the manufacturing team, commission, implementing, operating and servicing advanced automated manufacturing solutions.
