Digital Fabrication has enabled the leap from industrial manufacturing –which is hard to access- to affordable and accessible personal fabrication to allow for rapid prototyping in the development of projects.
With this course, you will learn to handle a digital workflow, in both the design and prototyping stages, learning to distinguish between different manufacturing processes for prototyping and designing your projects efficiently and quickly.
You will also learn to make your designs "smart" by equipping them with connectivity, interaction and responsive design. You will learn to do this in four steps: integration of electronics in the design, programming electronics, mechanical outputs so that your projects "do things" and interaction between your projects and their environment.
You will learn while you work on your projects, through learning by doing, combined with the knowledge offered by the best international faculty and the facilities of the Fab Lab IED Madrid, which you will have free access to all day long, so you can work on your prototypes and experiments.
Are you interested in the ever more revolutionary innovations in health and disease treatments, the potential to innovate, research new ways to treat diseases, set up a spin out company as a result of what you find, or work for top names in the industry?
If you want to study course modules within a variety of biotechnology, genetics, immunology, pharmacology, and microbiology areas but you want to choose the modules based on your aspirations this programme will not only give you choice of course modules but also great potential in many high growth and new generation revolutionary areas related to health and medical sciences and applications at the end of the programme.
We are living in an age of technological advances which are catapulting many fields including the health sciences into new ways to research and treat disease and new ways to produce and manufacture drugs and treatments. Biotechnology and pharmacy are enjoying a revolution in which customised health options, diagnosis, smart technologies, rapid prototyping and delivery, genomic sequencing, and molecular medicine are now possible and delivering new benefits to patients and economies. You study the essential areas of molecular medicine but you can choose from wide ranging courses such as Molecular Pharmacology, Drug Metabolism and Toxicology, Biologic Drug Discovery to Host-Pathogen Interactions and much more.
At the end of the programme you can choose your direction which can be anything from research science in private industry, institutes and centres, universities working towards PhD to finding a new method of treatment, rapid upscaling and spin out company possibilities. You may like to view the Scottish Innovation Centres within the health sciences to fully appreciate just how far you can take your expertise after graduation in Scotland and find out about innovation centres in England, Wales, Ireland or internationally.

This course spans advanced mechanical sciences theory, simulation and practice. Using industry standard software you will develop complex models to simulate topics such as multibody dynamic systems; thermo-fluid systems and advanced stress and structure simulations. Failure mechanisms inreal-worldsystems and components will be investigated through fatigue analysis; you will also examine multi-body dynamic systems and turbulent fluid dynamic motion. Your chosen specialist Masters project makes upone thirdof the overall course.
You will also learn from industry case studies. All units provide real-world engineering problems, case studies and practical techniques using state-of-the-art hardware and the latest, industry-standard software for design, experimentation and evaluation. The units typically have a good balance of practical and theoretical work. Much of the practical work is computer based.
Accredited by the Institution of Engineering and Technology on behalf of the Engineering Council as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for registration as a Chartered Engineer. Candidates must hold a CEng accredited BEng/BSc (Hons) undergraduate first degree to comply with full CEng registration requirements.
-Engineering facilities are excellent with a dedicated £4m heavy engineering workshop for research and teaching in surface engineering, materials and dynamics, with state-of-the-art kit including rapid prototyping machines and water jet cutters.
-Research in the School of Engineering was rated 'internationally excellent' in the Research Excellence Framework 2014.
-You will learn from industrial case studies and use the latest, industry standard software.
Our engineering Masters programmes are designed to meet the needs of an industry that looks to employ postgraduates who can learn independently and apply critical thinking to real-world problems. Many of the staff who teach in the School also have experience of working in the industry and have well-established links and contacts in their industry sector, ensuring your education and training is relevant to future employment.
You will be assessed through a combination of written reports, oral presentations, practical assignments and written examinations.
