There is growing evidence that the manufacturing sector is responding to the challenge of sustainability. Companies are improving processes and technologies with an ever increasing focus on environmental and social as well as economic performance.
Developed with leading organisations, this innovative new Masters course will provide you with the ability to combine the manufacturing and sustainability knowledge required to lead projects that will promote renewable material use, lower energy use and minimise waste.
With an acknowledged skills shortage in this developing area of manufacturing, graduates from this programme will be highly sought after by industry.
The course objectives are achieved through a carefully integrated and structured series of eight one-week assessed modules, a group project and an individual project. 60% of the course involves industrial project work. The course is designed to meet the further learning requirements for Chartered Engineer registration.
The Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) comprises eight modules and the group design project. Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) students complete five modules and a design project.
Group design project
The major learning experience for full-time students is the industrial group project. This involves working in teams to fulfil demanding objectives within a tight time schedule, applying state-of-the-art technologies and approaches, and delivering results to a high professional standard. Industrially oriented, projects have support from industry and other external organisations.
The individual research project is either industrially or academically driven. Individual projects provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate independent research skills working on industry sponsored projects. Part-time students usually undertake their individual project with their employer.
