PRODUCTION ENGINEERING AND MANAGEMENT
(UCAS: BEng HN72; MEng HN7F)
For the first two years of the course, students study a mix of classes in creating (design), making (production techniques) and managing (engineering and production management) together with mathematics, electrical and electronic engineering and mechanical engineering. Production Engineering and Management students are involved in both individual and team based project work from day one encouraging the fusion and application of learning from across the curriculum. Classes for years 1 and 2 are common with the Product Design Engineering (PDE) course, making transfer between these courses possible until the end of Year 2.
After the first two foundation years, the PEM course focuses on production techniques such as processes and computer aided manufacture; and management aspects including operations management, quality management, economics and finance.
In Year 4 (BEng) and Year 5 (MEng) the focus is on project work and further advancing knowledge in production engineering and management. Individual projects give students the opportunity to propose their own project brief which reflects their interests, career aspirations and apply and extend knowledge from across the curriculum. A member of academic staff acts as supervisor to offer support and guidance throughout the project. Product Development Projects - team projects with industrial partners gives students the opportunity to experience the "real world" by working to the requirements of a brief set by an industrial client. Teams of students act as consultants engaging in client meetings and proposing solutions. Academic staff including visiting professors supervise Product Development Projects. MEng students undertake an individual research dissertation in Year 5 in a topic of their choice.
DMEM's degree courses have long been accredited by the appropriate professional engineering bodies (ie. the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Institution of Engineering and Technology, the Institution of Engineering Designers) and it is anticipated that this new course will gain accreditation status in due course.
