Overview of the programme Government is focusing heavily on boosting the UK manufacturing industry; failure to meet demands for engineering skills could cost the UK £27bn a year. 58% of all new jobs will be STEM related, and the number of those studying for degrees in science, engineering and technology must increase by over 40% on current levels if demands are to be met.   Of all STEM skills, those in mechanical and manufacturing engineering are becoming increasingly highly valued.   Here at Wrexham Glyndŵr University, we aim to ensure that the MSc in Mechanical Manufacturing comprises fit-for-purpose teaching and research experience to provide a solid background for a career in the engineering and manufacturing industry sector.    Many of the academic staff have industrial experience spanning a broad range of engineering areas and working levels. The taught element of the programme includes design and stress and fluid dynamics analysis, using state of the art commercial software: CATIA V5, ABAQUS and ANSYS.   Students can choose to develop their skills in particular aspects through their choice of MSc research project, which would be aligned with one of the University Research Centre for Applied Science, Engineering and Computing’s specialist research groups.

Course programme

  • The programme is accredited by the Engineering Council and many students from previous years are now in jobs at top international companies such as Rolls-Royce, Siemens, Alstom, and Airbus.
  • The MSc in Mechanical Manufacturing is accredited by Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), and provides candidates the required training for registering for Chartered Engineers.

Full-time Mode (Septemer Intake)

The taught element, Part One, of the programmes will be delivered in two 12 week trimesters and each trimester has a loading of 60 credits.

The six taught modules will have lectures and tutorials/practical work on a weekly basis. The expected timetable per module will be a total of 200 hours, which includes 40 hours of scheduled learning and teaching hours and 160 independent study hours.

Part Two will then take a further 15 weeks having a notional study time of 600 hours. During this time the student will be responsible for managing his/her time in consultation with an academic supervisor.

Full-time Mode (January Intake)

For the January intake, students will study three specialist modules first during the second trimester from January to May. Other three common modules the students will study in the first trimester of the next academic year from September to January.

On successful completion of the taught element of the programme the students will be progressed to the Part Two, MSc dissertation to be submitted in April/May.

Part-time Mode

The taught element, part one, of the programmes will be delivered in two academic teaching years. 80 credits or equivalent worth of modules will be delivered in the first year and 40 credits or equivalent in the second year.

The part time students would join the full time delivery with lectures and tutorials/practical work during one day on a weekly basis. The dissertation element (i.e. Part Two) will start in trimester 2 taking a further 30 weeks having a total notional study time of 600 hours.

During this time the student will be responsible for managing his/her time in consultation with an academic supervisor.
