You'll plan and produce a personal research-driven project, perhaps with an industrial partner organisation, and will study with lecturers who contribute to both the academic and industrial streams of this sector.

Career Prospects

But you'll also have the skills and knowledge to work in industries such as quality control, facilities planning, postal and express delivery, the emergency services, the military and defence industry.
