Subject

Production and manufacturing engineering

Important notice – campus change
This course will move to the Belfast campus. Students will change campus part way through this course.

This MEng Hons course has been designed with the aid of employers to prepare students for a wide range of industrial electronic and mechanical roles. Expanding upon the knowledge gained in the first four years (3 in study, 1 in industry), this course will allow you to choose specialist subjects in the fifth year. This will allow you to extend your knowledge in an area of interest to you, or an area which will provide further career opportunities.

Utilising a connected programme of study, allowing you to build upon your knowledge gained in each semester, this degree will prepare you to become a well-rounded engineer equipped for a wide range of roles within industry.

Modules

This course has been designed with the aid of industrialists to address the needs of industry and research. The course provides a broadly based qualification in mechatronics engineering, integrating the principal aspects of electronic, mechanical and computing. Modern technology involves an increasingly complex and challenging range of research, development and design skills applied in a variety of industries as diverse as automotive, aerospace automation, medical instrumentation, domestic and leisure products. Graduates aspiring to a professional career in such industries find it more useful to have a multi-disciplinary knowledge base, rather than the traditional single discipline one. This MEng course is designed for those wanting to become chartered engineers.

Top job areas of graduates

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.

This information is from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).

You can use this to get an idea of who you might share a lecture with and how they progressed in this subject, here. It's also worth comparing typical A-level subjects and grades students achieved with the current course entry requirements; similarities or differences here could indicate how flexible (or not) a university might be.

Post-six month graduation stats:

This is from the Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education Survey, based on responses from graduates who studied the same subject area here.

It offers a snapshot of what grads went on to do six months later, what they were earning on average, and whether they felt their degree helped them obtain a 'graduate role'. We calculate a mean rating to indicate if this is high, medium or low compared to other universities.

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?
