- Research in Practice (30 credits)
Gain an understanding of the expectations of Masters-level work and support in developing the appropriate research and communication skills.
- Maintenance Strategy (30 credits)
Consider the various approaches to developing a maintenance strategy, including Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), Reliability Centred Maintenance (RCM) and Condition Based Maintenance (CBM). Take the opportunity to consider these approaches against a full range of real-world constraints such as business, financial and environmental considerations.
- Condition Monitoring and CBM (30 credits)
Gain an understanding of how the condition of engineering assets can be measured and used to inform maintenance practices. Gain a practical and theoretical insight into the principles of how systems wear, how this can be measured using modern instrumentation technology and the latest technologies to collect and process data to include Industry 4.0, Internet of Things and Big Data techniques.
- Asset Management (30 credits)
Explore the approaches and standards used in managing engineering assets throughout their lifecycle. Cover topics such as risk, reliability, KPIs and asset data management through the lens of the relevant ISO 55000 standards.
- Project/Dissertation (60 credits)
Using your research and critical analysis skills, draw on the knowledge you have gained during the course of the programme to address a real engineering problem or research question at the forefront of the discipline.
