Course Summary

This course is designed to give you the skills required to utilise these new technologies to their full potential. This is an exciting new field, which uses a range of diverse technologies for equally diverse applications. It is now possible to print everything from aerospace parts to biological tissue and even houses.

You will have access to the Additive Manufacturing lab in the new Engineering Innovation Centre, housing some of the latest AM equipment. Learning will be largely project based, with hands-on use of equipment and software. The course will include relevant industry visits, guest speakers and industry related projects. You will work alongside our research active staff with the possibility of continuing on to PhD research. Students will be given the opportunity to build their own 3D printer (to keep) and develop new or enhanced Additive Manufacturing technologies.

The course adopts a range of approaches to the delivery of curriculum including: case studies, lectures, practical sessions, independent learning guided by a tutor and tutorial sessions. Assessment of learning is conducted by a range of methods including: tutorial questions, examination, use of online assessment via Blackboard questions, extended assignments, presentations, poster defence and written reports. The course benefits from world-class facilities in additive manufacturing, materials testing, tribology and computer aided engineering.
