24 months (part time)
Dundee City Campus

Industrial engineers with a sound engineering understanding, creative mindset, and the drive to deliver a fairer future for all are in high demand. This degree combines specialised industry-focused engineering with principles of sustainability, management skills, and knowledge of relevant global policy and international regulations to develop just these skills.

You’ll study Advanced Robotics, looking at multi-modal sensor integration and human-robot interactions, and Advanced Manufacturing, investigating modern and smart manufacturing technologies. You'll combine these studies with Project Management, Understanding of the Just Transition of a Net-Zero Economy, Principles of Sustainability, and Climate Change: Processes and Impacts. Additionally, you'll undertake a 12-week industrial-related project, offering exposure to industry and building up your practical experience and network within the UK and internationally.

We are working at the forefront of technology in high precision laser engineering of surfaces, renewable energy, and thermodynamic cooling technologies through our partnership with CERN. We also work closely with industry on materials printing for the energy sector, as well as continued casting of metals for various industrial processes. The outcomes of our research form a unique research and industry led teaching programme.

We invest heavily in your personal and professional development. We give funding towards personal development, which is in addition to all the funded modules and teaching-related activities. You’ll visit leading international trade fairs, take part in industrial talks, and can register with professional bodies (IET – Institute for Engineering and Technology). We support your project or help with travel needs for industrial placements, building up your industrial network and a clear vision for your future career.

Our Industrial Engineering courses have one of the highest employability rates of the School of Science and Engineering: More than 70% of students began employment straight after their placement.
