About

Studying this Manufacturing Engineering with Management (Hons) degree within the Department of Design, Manufacture and Engineering Management (DMEM) from the University of Strathclyde provides you with access to some of the leading academics in production engineering and management, learning from their time in industry, current research projects and advancements in those fields.

Overview

Everything that we use, eat, watch, hear or wear is created using the skills of production engineers and managers. Production engineers and managers do not just create technological solutions though, they also motivate, organise and interact with others to make sure products and services are provided when and where customers’ needs exist. The demand industry’s need for those skilled in this area continues to increase as the demand for quicker turnaround times, to meet the requirements of increasing global customers and to provide enhanced online shopping and service experiences grows progresses.

Production engineering and management blends a more technical engineering focus (such as mechanics, manufacturing, electronics, maths, programming, engineering calculations of a products design) with production and management principles, and technology such as operational improvement and quality management. This is integrated with manufacturing processes, design, CAD, rapid prototyping and digital prototyping technologies, software and practical skills to turn the design and production process into reality which is fundamental to global market success. Considerations include environmental impact, reducing waste and increasing outputs to meet targets.

During the Manufacturing Engineering with Management (Hons) degree from the University of Strathclyde, you will focus on engineering modules that allow you to develop your knowledge on how a product works technically such as:

  • Engineering Mechanics
  • Heat & Flow
  • Electrical Circuits
  • Electrical Machines & Control
  • Product Programming
  • Mechatronics Design & Applications

As well as modules which allow you to develop your production management skills in both manufacturing techniques and operations planning such as:

  • Introduction to Production Engineering & Management
  • Design & Manufacturing Management
  • Production Techniques
  • Analysing & Improving Operations
  • Advanced Product Design & Manufacture

Careers

The Production Engineering and Management degree provides students with a plethora of opportunities and roles, thanks to its niche focus combined with the broad underlying skills that it covers. The degree is intended to produce graduates in top management positions in the production, manufacturing, and operations of international and local companies including areas of planning, development, production control, quality control and product development.

Roles may have responsibilities such as:

  • Ensuring safe working and consideration of environmental impact
  • Responsibility for output targets and meeting these, as well as quality of finished product
  • Controlling labour and overhead spend to budget - eliminate waste in the manufacturing processes
  • Determining the amount of necessary resources required to meet targets – workforce, raw materials
  • Responsibility for engineering and facilities maintenance including planned preventive maintenance
  • Leading teams with different disciplines, maintaining employee engagement
