Course content

Our Design for Additive Manufacture MSc programme covers key areas of digital design and fabrication, including Additive Manufacture (otherwise known as 3D printing), 3D scanning and advanced Computer Aided Design (CAD).

Our Design for Additive Manufacture MSc programme has been specially designed to help you strengthen your knowledge and skillsets in the current and emerging technologies within the field of digital design and fabrication, specifically Additive Manufacture. Also known as 3D Printing, Additive Manufacture enables the physical realisation of complex parts not previously possible with other manufacturing processes, thereby giving you new opportunities to explore and enhance your creativity and innovation. In addition to learning about Additive Manufacture, you will also be introduced to other supporting enabling technologies, such as 3D scanning and advanced Computer Aided Design (CAD), in order to get the most out of Additive Manufacturing technologies.

In addition to learning about Design for Additive Manufacture, Loughborough Design School offers you a unique combination of design and specialist human factors teaching, which will equip you with core and specialist design skills.

The content of the Design for Additive Manufacture programme ‎enables you to develop your skills and competencies in both the creative and analytical aspects of Design for Additive Manufacture whilst working on a diverse range of projects, thereby designing artefacts which aim to serve a purpose whilst being viable in terms of cost and manufacturability.‎

Programme content may include industry-supported projects, which provide an exciting ‎opportunity to engage with current industry developments and methods of working.‎

The Design School and its dedicated DReAM Lab (Design Research for Additive Manufacturing) is equipped with a wide variety of equipment including:

  • Ultimakers, Makerbots and specialised machines from Markforged for fibre reinforced 3D Printing
  • FormLabs for stereolithography
  • Industry standard Stratasys machines including Objet Connex 500 and Dimension 1200es
  • A wide range of advanced 3D CAD software including SolidWorks, Creo, Rhino, Geomagic FreeForm and Netfabb
  • A selection of hand-held 3D scanners, including 3D Systems/ZCorp ZScanner800 and Artec Eva/Leo.
