Course summary

We aim to produce graduates with the versatility and depth of understanding to deal with new and unusual challenges in mechanical engineering, alongside the necessary imagination and creativity to innovate. In 2019, the Manufacturing Engineering degree programme, as part of Coventry University’s Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering (AME), was awarded the Queen’s Anniversary prize 2019 for developing industry-ready graduates.

  • Your learning is designed to be grounded in practical real-world application inspired by Unipart’s experience. We also currently have strong employer links with a range of companies, such as Aston Martin, JLR, Prodrive, MIRA, Triumph Motorcycles, BAE Systems and Rolls Royce.
  • This degree course also aims to provide you with the opportunity to directly access Unipart's operations, working on some of their 'live' issues in a real-world manufacturing production environment, as well as being able to access the University’s modern High Performance Engineering Centre*.
  • You will have the opportunity to gain industrial experience, apply your knowledge and learning to real ‘live’ industrial problems in each year of the degree programme*.
Key Course Benefits Opportunity to participate in field trips abroad, which have previously included trips to Poland, Bulgaria, China, Belgium and USA*. Access to industry-standard software, such as Computer Aided Design (CAD), Finite Element Analysis (FAE) and Computer fluid dynamics (CFD) mathematic modelling software. A dedicated industrial placement tutor will aim to help you with your applications for placements and support you if you choose to spend a year in industry*. Past placements have included roles in Aston Martin Lagonda, Unipart, Babcock International Group, Cummins, GE-Aviation and GKN Access to extensive modern facilities in our High-Performance Engineering Centre, which houses a 20% scale model wind tunnel, composites lab, metrology lab, four-pot shaker rig, flow lab, AVL engine test cell, automotive workshop, fatigue and tensile testing (Instron), a full-size Harrier Jet, three further simulators, civil engineering specialist testing equipment, a range of Computerised Numeric Control (CNC) machinery and a laser workshop**. The 'Faculty on the Factory Floor' initiative should enable you to learn about and experience the latest technology on the manufacturing front line, which includes of state-of-the-art robotic automation, forming, joining, analysis and simulation, metrology and product verification technology**. *UK and international opportunities Please note that we are unable to guarantee any UK or International opportunities (whether required or optional) such as internships, work experience, field trips, conferences, placements or study abroad opportunities and that all such opportunities may be subject to additional costs (which could include, but is not limited to, equipment, materials, bench fees, studio or facilities hire, travel, accommodation and visas), competitive application, availability and/or meeting any applicable travel COVID and visa requirements. To ensure that you fully understand the visa requirements, please contact the International Office. ** Facilities are subject to availability. Due to the ongoing restrictions relating to COVID-19, some facilities (including some teaching and learning spaces) may vary from those advertised and may have reduced availability or restrictions on their use.


Our main study themes are: Science and Technology: the course aims to provide essential underpinning science and technology necessary for today’s engineer. Design and Manufacture: the innovative resolution of design and manufacture problems focused on commercially viable solutions. Manufacturing Analysis: on successful completion you should have learnt to use industry-standard software to model, analyse and validate process and systems. Sustainability: the course aims to give an understanding of the need for ethical approaches in manufacturing industries and protecting the environment with respect to manufacturing engineering processes and management. Practical: opportunities to investigate and analyse using laboratory, workshop and computer-based techniques. You will also have the chance to apply your learning to real, ‘live’ industrial projects throughout the Manufacturing Engineering degree course as part of the ‘Faculty on the Factory Floor’ initiative, a remit of the Institute for Advanced Manufacturing and Engineering. Year One In the first year, the curriculum allows you to gain a broad grounding in the discipline where you will develop knowledge and skills to do with quality and metrology, manufacturing and electrical science, engineering materials and manufacturing technology, among others. Modules Engineering Materials and Manufacturing Technology Mechanical Science and Mathematics Part-assembly Manufacturing Project Quality and Metrology Manufacturing Electrical Science Quality and Metrology Part-Assembly Extension Project Year Two In year two, you will develop more advanced knowledge and skills to do with: automation and robotics, design and computer-assisted manufacturing, and design principles for manufacturing, amongst others. Placement Year There’s no better way to find out what you love doing than trying it out for yourself, which is why a work placement* can often be beneficial. Work placements usually occur between your second and final year of study. They’re a great way to help you explore your potential career path and gain valuable work experience, whilst developing transferable skills for the future. If you choose to do a work placement year, you will pay a reduced tuition fee* of £1,250. For more information, please go to the fees and funding section. During this time, you will receive guidance from your employer or partner institution, along with your assigned academic mentor who will ensure you have the support you need to complete your placement. Final Year In year three, you will develop more advanced knowledge and skills to do with: supply chains and logistics, lean systems and production control, and engineering materials and manufacturing technology, amongst others. Modules Lean Systems and Production Control Advanced Manufacturing Systems Project Individual Manufacturing Engineering Project Proposal and Professional Engineering Strategic Analysis and Supply Chain Management in Manufacturing New Product Development Project Individual Manufacturing Engineering Project Additional Year If you meet the criteria, you could choose to take an additional fourth-year master's option, which will deepen your knowledge and expertise.
