What is Manufacturing Engineering?

Manufacturing Engineering involves the use of computer systems to design products, plan production, control operations and perform the various business-related functions needed in a manufacturing firm and their incorporation into an integrated computer system.

What is the BSc (Hons) in Manufacturing Engineering course?

The BSc (Hons) in Manufacturing Engineering is a one year follow-on course for graduates of the BEng in Manufacturing Engineering. The course prepares students to work with the latest computer-based technologies associated with modern manufacturing practice. 

Field Trips

Industrial visits and field trips form part of this course.  Presentations from past graduates and industrial visitors are a regular feature.


Projects form a very enjoyable part of the course where students have the freedom to genuinely express themselves. Many of the projects undertaken have developed into postgraduate research projects and a number of final-year students have presented their work in published papers at international conferences.
