Subject

Manufacturing engineering

The manufacturing sector is the single biggest employer of engineering graduates. Approximately 27% of all engineering and technology graduates go into manufacturing related roles in the UK. As a manufacturing engineer, you will use your knowledge of fundamental engineering principles like mechanics, materials and thermo-fluids, alongside engineering skills such as CAD, CAM and project management, to create products of true value to the economy, and society.

On this programme you will be tutored by world-class academics with both industry and research experience. You will have the opportunity to work on industry and research-led projects using state-of-the-art equipment in the Engineering Innovation Centre.

You will graduate with a well-rounded education that prepares you to take ideas from concept to production using the latest manufacturing and automation technologies.

Modules

Year 1 Compulsory Modules: Engineering Applications, Engineering Science, Engineering Design, Engineering Analysis.

Year 2 Compulsory Moudles: Engineering Design and Manufacture, Thermo-fluids,Operations Management A, Mechanics, Kinematics & Materials. Year 2 Optional Modules: Choose EITHER CAD & Simulation OR Further Engineering Maths and Simulation.

Optional Placement Year.

Year 3 Compulsory Modules: Project, Advanced Manufacturing, Engineering Design B, Operations Management B, Engineering Simulation, Automated Production B.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Graduates are in significant demand, so unemployment rates are well below the national graduate average and starting salaries are well above average. Much the most common industries for these graduates are now vehicle manufacture - there are not enough people with these degrees to go round and so the big employers tend to take the lion's share at the moment. But pretty much anywhere there is manufacturing, there are production engineers. Bear in mind that a lot of courses are four years long, and lead to an MEng qualification — this is necessary if you want to become a Chartered Engineer.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
