Course Description

About this course:

This new course has been established with the Institute for Innovation and Sustainable Engineering (IISE) and with funding from HEFCE. It’s appropriate to both recent graduates and those in work, and is ideal for students who have undertaken study in other subjects who wish to start a career in manufacturing and other high-tech industries.

Additive manufacturing (AM) is an emerging advanced manufacture technology. By combining study in this area with advanced materials, you’ll gain an understanding of the challenges in using this technology to produce specific properties in components using this technique. Materials and their ability to be designed and manufactured sustainably in complex geometries is particularly important to innovation in the industries of automobiles, trains and planes, as well as architecture and biomedical applications. There are growing opportunities for graduates who can forge a future for companies in the exciting area of materials and manufacturing development.

This intellectually stimulating and research orientated course will provide you with the innovative skills and understanding of advanced materials and additive manufacturing and their applications. You’ll have access to facilities and specialist staff at our research centre, IISE, which contains an advanced machining and additive manufacturing facility. You’ll also take advantage of our excellent teaching resources on campus, which will be complemented by our new £14 million engineering building, opening in 2017.

Upon completion of this degree, you’ll have the potential to apply for professional accreditation as a Chartered Engineer.
