MSc Manufacturing Systems Engineering (MSE) “ Since I came to the course with very little actual practical experience, it was great from me to get involved in hands-on projects. The simulations embedded what we had learned in the lectures by letting us apply the theories to real situations. As teams, we learned to make strategic decisions, manage risks, plan financial models, use statistical models to solve problems and much more. Now I am working, I realise how vital these ‘games’ were in the learning process – they simulate exactly how things are done in the real world. Shashank Sriram, India MSE Graduate 2012-13 Process Capability Engineer, ALCOA, UK “ Core Modules Industrial Engineering This module provides an introduction to the industrial engineering tools and techniques and teaches you how these can be used to fully support business objectives and productivity improvements. You will explore applications of the tools and techniques in various situations in order to understand how to maximise potential benefits. Manufacturing Process Technology This module provides an appreciation of the application capabilities and limitation of primary and secondary manufacturing processes. Learn to identify the properties of materials which influence their selection and behaviour during processing, understand the influence on engineering properties of different processes, and recognise the capabilities and limitations of commonly used manufacturing processes. Operations Strategy for Industry The existence of a properly formulated and explicit strategy is essential to the development and success of business. This module will present a variety of frameworks, methods and examples of how operations strategy can be formulated and implemented in manufacturing and related industries. You will learn how to select appropriate practices for implementing operations strategy in different environments. Problem Solving with Statistics This module describes the general context in which the use of statistical techniques can be used for problem solving and decision making. It shows how basic tools can be extended into more powerful techniques for investigating processes to gain insights to support future development and improvement. Quality, Reliability and Maintenance This course treats quality, reliability and maintenance as integral parts of manufacturing, showing how philosophies, systems, employee involvement, techniques and technology should all contribute to improving quality and reducing costs. Project Planning, Management and Control This module provides an understanding of the principles, philosophies and methods of project management. It establishes an appreciation of, and an ability to apply current tools and techniques for project planning and control, including the selection and management of project teams. Logistics and Operations Management Logistics is recognised as a key function in meeting market requirements quickly, flexibly and without incurring punitive inventory costs. This involves the management of external companies supplying materials or services to the company as well as the management of operations internally. This module provides an introduction to the fundamentals of logistics and operations management. go.warwick.ac.uk/wmgmasters/courses/mse 23
