Course summary

Manufacturing is undergoing transformational change, which you might have heard called the ‘fourth industrial revolution’. New technologies are transforming the way data is gathered, information is analysed and how businesses operate. Machinery in all industries now produces data on a big scale, and engineers need to know how to read this data and know what is it telling them. A new generation of engineers are needed to bridge the gap between physical and digital industries and to manage advanced manufacturing and quality control systems. This new approach of reading and digesting the data from the machines, will allow more responsive and efficient processes that deliver higher-quality products at reduced cost. This is the productivity that any manufacturer wants. Our course aims to create this new generation of engineer. It is a mix of: * Mechanical engineering * Electrical engineering * Computer science Which are all used in digital manufacturing engineering. The course is designed so you’ll become knowledgeable and experienced with both mass production and very high value bespoke manufacturing. This could help you to work within a broad range of industries. In addition, our Institute of Railway Research (IRR) within our Department of Engineering have been awarded the Queen's Anniversary Prize (https://www.hud.ac.uk/news/2019/november/inst-railway-research-queens-anniversary-award/) for ‘innovative research in railway engineering to improve safety and efficiency through technological developments'. This is one of the most coveted distinctions in UK Higher Education. During your studies you have the chance to take a placement after your second year. You could work in the industry and put what you’ve learnt into practice. We’ll also give you the opportunity to take part in national competitions like the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) Formula Student (http://www.teamhare.co.uk/), Railway Challenge (http://hudrail.co.uk/) and UAS (http://teamhawk.hud.ac.uk/)(or comparable design and build team projects). Digital technologies are transforming manufacturing. Combining Mechanical Engineering with Computer Science allows modern manufacturers to make customised parts at a cost similar to mass production. We are also passionate about supporting the next generation of engineers. We will support you in graduating ready for work or further study. The optional placement year gives you real-world experience, as well as opportunities for development and creativity. ~ Prof. Andrew Longstaff, Professor of Machine Tool Metrology and course leader. Additional costs: You’ll need to cover the cost of your safety boots, which are a compulsory requirement. The cost will be dependent on where you purchase your boots, but typically you can purchase them online from between £8.99 and £19.99.
