Masters of Engineering (MEng) in Digitalisation of Manufacturing

The masterclass modules will cover essential elements of digitalisation of manufacturing and their application in practice. The goal of the masterclasses is to provide an expert level appraisal of relevant technologies, tools and techniques in a range of relevant disciplines, so that the Learner can assess current trends and can engage with specialist professionals on an equal footing.

The modules include, Database Design & Data Visualisation, Cyber-Physical Systems & IoT, Manufacturing Automation & Robotics, Data Analytics & Machine Learning, Integrated Database Systems, and Digitalisation of Production. All of
the modules will be integrated with work-based practice and will be supported by regular on-line tutorials. Successful completion of the masterclasses (30 Credits) may lead to an exit award – a Certificate in Smart Factory Operations (L9 Minor Award).

The applied research project will be structured over the two years and will require completion of a comprehensive range of relevant elements, including; a review of existing knowledge, a personal reflection and professional development plan (PDP), the definition and analysis of a manufacturing digitalisation problem in industry, the design, planning and implementation of a solution within a constrained schedule and budget - cognisant of social and ethical norms, the evaluation of change requirements, the validation of performance (value engineering) and the dissemination of the project’s results and impact. The applied research project will be self-directed by the Learner, supported by an industry mentor, academic supervisors (two) and an External Assessment Board (EAB).

The completion of an applied research project will bring significant advances in terms of professional and personal development, communication skills and confidence to present proposals and results. The necessary transversal skills (teamwork, communications, research methods, project management) will be delivered through online, self-directed modules with regular workshops in the Institute.

Who should attend:
The programme is aimed at existing manufacturing, mechanical or engineering professionals, and those migrating from associated disciplines. The principal entry requirement for the Masters programme is a Level 8 honours degree, at minimum second class honours (NFQ or other internationally recognised equivalent), in a relevant engineering, computing, or technology discipline.

Applicants from other Level 8 degree disciplines who have a minimum of five years experiential learning in an appropriate manufacturing environment (with a demonstrable knowledge of mathematics and computing) may also apply. Their admission to the program will be determined by the Limerick Institute of Technology Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Process. A deep knowledge of manufacturing environments and the potential benefits and challenges facing manufacturing from digitalisation would be beneficial.

NFQ Level 9 - 90 credits.
