The MFL offers 6 Master's level programmes, each addressing specific sector's skills needs and designed to equip MSc students with knowledge of the latest manufacturing technologies. With an emphasis on experiential learning, innovation, enterprise and the wider regulatory environment, the MSc programmes span nanoscale manufacturing, stem cell and gene therapy, chemical sustainability and nature-inspired engineering, as well as leveraging wider UCL research strengths in ‘big data’ analytics, artificial intelligence, process monitoring and control technologies, and multi-scale modelling.

All of the programmes benefit from cutting-edge teaching methods based on approaches pioneered by the award-winning UCL Integrated Engineering Programme (IEP), where hands-on experiences help shape real-world problem-solving skills. In addition to their sector-specific technical skills, students acquire a rich set of transferable skills, including creativity, design, teamwork, practical skills, knowledge of emerging technologies and the fundamentals of science and mathematics.

MFL staff are committed to increasing the number of young people studying Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programmes to create the technically strong, diverse and dynamic workforce necessary to support the growth of the various manufacturing sectors. In addition to supporting MSc and doctoral programme delivery, MFL staff participate in a range of outreach and widening participation activities with school children from East London and beyond. These benefit from purpose-designed classroom and microbrewery facilities for schools and public engagement
