Throughout this course, you will cover a range of topics at the cutting-edge of the discipline using the latest digital tools. Modules will cover core aspects of manufacturing engineering along with their application in design and manufacturing.
You will develop research skills and learn how to apply these to real and current engineering problems.
This is a four year integrated masters course; you will graduate as a Master of Engineering.
The Manufacturing Engineering team are busy preparing for the start of our courses in September 2020.
Covid-19 has challenged the delivery of accredited programmes but here at the University of Sunderland, supported by the IET, we have maintained professional standards with an effective approach to your programme of study, blending face-to-face and online teaching.
Our experience has shown that this method opens new learning opportunities for all, enabling you to develop graduate skills such as time management, self-care and workload prioritisation, with support from the Engineering academic team and the wider University services available to you.
Key practical and theoretical skills will continue to be taught in our new delivery method. This will include developing specialist knowledge using digital engineering techniques blended with the theory you would be expected to implement in engineering scenarios. This approach will ensure you acquire all the necessary engineering skills, before experiencing the world of industry for the first time. We will be identifying sessions we hope to be completed weekly on campus, to allow you to develop key proficiencies alongside your peers. Theoretical lectures will continue and be delivered online using live conference technology and video content you can review at your convenience.
The Engineering Student Society will launch in September and will be meeting you during the first week to say hello, along with all the teaching team and our amazing technical staff.
In the coming months before commencing your studies please contact your Programme Leaders if we can offer any further guidance before joining us:
Teaching methods include lectures, seminars, group work and e-learning. Project work will be a strong focus of the course and you will learn interactively by applying the skills you develop in our laboratory facilities.
As well as assessments that count towards your degree, there are also on-going assessments for feedback and consolidating your learning. Assessment methods include exams, multiple-choice tests and projects.

Graduates from this course can go on to jobs in the automotive, materials, food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, among many others. More generally, you will be equipped to take up a wide range of roles throughout the engineering and manufacturing sectors.
There is considerable demand among employers for engineering graduates with the right mix of skills and experience.
Sunderland has a good reputation with employers. Our recent graduates have gone on to work for companies such as McLaren Automotive, General Motors, Jaguar, Perkins Engines and Parametrics Technology. Other graduates conduct research within major automotive manufacturers such as Ford, Vauxhall and Nissan.
To further enhance employability we encourage you to apply for a 35-week placement where available, between your second and third year. Placements are subject to availability and interviews are required. They are usually paid, with past students having earned an average salary of £14,000-£18,000 a year depending on location.
Placements are an excellent opportunity to put your learning into practice and understand the context for your new knowledge. The contacts made during placements can also be valuable for future job offers.
Examples of companies that have offered placements to our students include:
Our Engineering team is engaged in a wide range of industry projects via AMAP including Knowledge Transfer Partnerships and Consultancy. AMAP is also host to the North East Maintenance Forum (NEMF) – a quarterly meeting attended by a wide range of industrial representatives from a number of sectors including manufacturing, process industries and utilities. Several academics are also engaged in activities with Professional Engineering Institutions such as the The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
If you’re looking for extra-curricular opportunities, why not join the University of Sunderland’s Formula Student motorsport team? Each year the team work together to design, build and test a single-seater racing car in preparation for the IMechE Formula Student competition held annually at Silverstone, the home of the British Grand Prix.
The competition encourages many different skills and talents. These include: engineering, management, production, administration, accounting, marketing, advertising, public relations, as well as teamwork and co-operation. It’s ideal for helping to prepare for life after university in any career path, and the team welcome not just engineers but anyone who has an interest in motorsport and wants to improve their skills.
