Technical Training

Masters of Engineering (MEng) in Digitalisation of Manufacturing

Objectives

The programme covers essential elements of digitalisation of manufacturing and their application in practice. The goal of the master's is to provide an expert level appraisal of relevant technologies, tools and techniques in a range of relevant disciplines, so that the Learner can assess current trends, engage with specialist professionals, and identify the potential benefits of digitalisation of manufacturing and embracing industry 4.0.

The modules include:
  • Database Design & Data Visualisation
  • Cyber-Physical Systems & IoT
  • Manufacturing Automation & Robotics
  • Data Analytics & Machine Learning
  • Integrated Database Systems
  • Digitalisation of Production

All of the modules are integrated with work-based practice and are supported by regular on-line tutorials.

The completion of an applied research project will bring significant advances in terms of professional and personal development, communication skills and confidence to present proposals and results. The necessary transversal skills (teamwork, communications, research methods, project management) will be delivered through online, self directed modules with regular workshops in the Institute.

The applied research project will be structured over two years and will require completion of; a review of existing knowledge, a personal reflection and professional development plan (PDP), definition and analysis of an industry manufacturing digitalisation problem, design, planning and implementation of a solution with a constrained schedule and budget, evaluation of change requirements, the validation of performance (value engineering) and dissemination of the project’s results and impact. The applied research project will be self directed by the Learner, supported by an industry mentor, academic supervisors and an External Assessment Board.
