ISMM starts at the beginning of October and consists of 11 months of taught programme plus one month of assessment. The taught programme is split as follows:
- Project work, during which you will tackle a number of projects
- Taught modules
- An overseas study tour either in mainland Europe or further afield.
- Two holiday periods - one at Christmas and one at Easter
- A long dissertation project where you will be working with researchers for the Institute for Manufacturing applying new theories to industrial applications.
ISMM is not just an academic course - the balance of activities shows clearly that the emphasis is on learning by doing - you will be solving real problems in live industrial situations.
