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. This will require occasional travel to the AMRC in Sheffield.

Course accreditation

Students completing an IMechE accredited degree are deemed to have met part or all of the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered or Incorporated Engineer and are in a strong position to move on to achieve professional engineering status after a period of initial professional development in industry.

This accredited MSc will meet, in part, the exemplifying academic benchmark requirements for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Accredited MSc graduates who also have a BEng (Hons) accredited for CEng will be able to show that they have satisfied the educational base for CEng registration.

The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it's up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers. In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.
