Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering with Industrial Practice MSc

Our MSc in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering with Industrial Practice is ideal for graduates who want to develop into commercially smart, creative, professional engineers.

This master's course helps to transform graduates into innovative professional engineers with a creative approach to problem-solving and a focus on being efficient and cost-effective. It will suit engineering and technology graduates who want to expand their skills or develop managerial careers in engineering or manufacturing.

This two-year Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering degree with Industrial Practice is in innovative combination of theory and practice. You'll have the chance to put your learning into action though an individual project which runs throughout the year, followed by a placement with a relevant employer. The placement is an ideal opportunity to work and engage with state-of-the-art industrial systems, processes and practices.

You'll emerge from this course as a well-rounded professional engineering manager. With a highly valued combination of in-depth knowledge and work experience, graduates of this course will be in demand anywhere in the world.

  • Learn to be a creative and innovative problem-solver with commercial awareness
  • Combine study with practice through a year-long project and extended placement
  • This course is taught on our Medway Campus in Kent and is ideal for graduates seeking managerial roles in manufacturing and engineering
  • You are responsible for securing your placement (with our help). But if this is not completed, you can still graduate with an award without industrial practice

Career Prospects

Will I have a work placement?

The industrial placement lasts approximately one year. This is an opportunity to put into practice the knowledge and experience you've gained during the first year of the master's course plus any previous study or experience. You'll be able to engage with current industrial systems, processes and practices, which contribute to your professional development as a manager in the engineering sector.

Our Faculty Employability Team provides support and guidance. We work with a organisation that specialises in helping students to secure an industrial placement. However, it is your responsibility to secure the placement for your second year. This could be with a local or international employer in a relevant industrial sector.

What sort of careers do graduates pursue?

This course provides a wide variety of opportunities for mechanical and manufacturing engineers in a range of sectors, from the automotive to the process industries.

Do you provide employability services?

We have a team dedicated to enhancing student employment outcomes. This includes an Employer Partnerships Manager, who works with companies to provide placement and employment opportunities.

Our team will also help you understand the jobs market, produce effective CVs, and prepare for a graduate job and placement applications in your final year.
