The MSc in Advanced Manufacturing Technologies is a research programme led by a collaboration between the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Automatic Control and Systems Engineering and the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC).

  • Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sheffield is one of the largest mechanical engineering departments in the UK.
  • The AMRC is an internationally renowned centre for research specialising in advanced manufacturing technologies used in the aerospace, automotive, medical and other high-value manufacturing sectors.
  • The Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering is the only department of its kind in the UK.

During this 12 month course, students have the opportunity to undertake taught modules related to cutting edge manufacturing technology and apply this knowledge to an industrially motivated research project within the AMRC.

The modules are taught by leading academics in all areas of Mechanical Engineering and Automatic Control and Systems.

The research project allows students to experience real industrial challenges that span across the entire manufacturing process, from materials suppliers to assembly specialists.

Your project will focus on a topic that is a current challenge for industry and you will have the opportunity to investigate potential solutions using some of the most state-of-the-art machine tools in the world based at the AMRC’s Knowledge Transfer Centre.
