This Manufacturing Engineering (Hons) degree from the University of Nottingham will provide you with the engineering knowledge and skills needed to improve productivity, reduce costs of manufacture and ensure products and services are delivered to industry when required. Manufacturing operates in a global competitive market and engineers are in great demand in the UK and abroad, in high-value sectors such as the aerospace, automotive, Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) and pharmaceutical industries.
Along with an accredited engineering degree, you will have gained the practical and theoretical skills needed to develop and manufacture products and the production systems to manufacture them efficiently. Your transferable skills will include effective communication and problem-solving.
The first two years provide a good grounding in the broad fundamentals of engineering science and engineering design. The science subjects studied include thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, dynamics and electro-mechanical systems. In design, the emphasis is on project work and in both the first and second years, you will undertake a design, make and test project, which you will manufacture in the department's student workshop.
Year three features a major individual project in manufacturing engineering over the full year, making up a third of your studies. In addition to compulsory manufacturing modules, you will study a range of optional modules in manufacturing, operations management and human factors. This provides you with the flexibility to tailor the course to your interests.
