Course Summary

Smart Manufacturing comprises systems that are “fully-integrated, collaborative manufacturing systems that respond in real time to meet changing demands and conditions in the factory, in the supply network, and in customer needs.” The merger of the physical and virtual worlds (cyber physical systems) opens up new areas of innovation enabling optimisation of the entire manufacturing supply chain to create higher quality products, improve productivity, increased energy efficiency involving real-time data collection and analysis. The aim of this programme is to upskill technicians/engineers in the latest machining and inspection technologies and to show how advances in ICT can be exploited and implemented on the factory floor. The programme will utilise industry-standard computer numerical control (CNC) machine tools, co-ordinate measuring machines (CMM) and CAD/CAM software.

Admission Requirements:

Candidates should have a Level 6 qualification (or equivalent) in Engineering or cognate discipline.


Candidates with sufficient experience which in the judgement of MTU Cork may be deemed equivalent to this qualification will be considered following the principles/procedures set out the Institute’s Recognition of Prior Learning service in MTU Cork; see rpl

Smart Manufacturing comprises systems that are “fully-integrated, collaborative manufacturing systems that respond in real time to meet changing demands and conditions in the factory, in the supply network, and in customer needs.” The merger of the physical and virtual worlds (cyber physical systems) opens up new areas of innovation enabling optimisation of the entire manufacturing supply chain to create higher quality products, improve productivity, increased energy efficiency involving real-time data collection and analysis.

 

The aim of this programme is to upskill technicians/engineers in the latest machining and inspection technologies and to show how advances in ICT can be exploited and implemented on the factory floor. The programme will utilise industry-standard computer numerical control (CNC) machine tools, co-ordinate measuring machines (CMM) and CAD/CAM software.

 

In the past three years, MTU Cork has invested circa €1.5 million in bringing its CNC machining and CMM inspection equipment up to a standard comparable to that in manufacturing industry. The Institute also has access to the most up-to-date CAD/CAM software. Participants on the programme will thus be exposed to the current state-of-the-art technologies and to the emerging developments and trends. The University has also invested in staff training so that the potential offered by the new equipment/software is fully realised.

 

It is envisaged that the topics in this programme will be developed to a more advanced level in the following academic year leading to an additional 15 credits for those wishing to progress further.
