The aim of this course is to ensure graduates will be able to deal with complex issues both systematically and creatively and make sound judgements associated with rapid product manufacture by means of existing, new and emerging manufacturing processes. The course aims to ensure that graduates will be able to demonstrate self-direction and originality and are equipped with the appropriate knowledge to practise professionally and ethically in future employment roles. Thus, the course will:
Address industry’s demand for graduates who can apply innovative product manufacturing solutions to promote the rapid and cost effective manufacture of discrete parts and tooling across the engineering sector
Develop the ability to research a range of subject areas within manufacturing, mechanical, materials science and engineering disciplines, underpinning the ability to act autonomously in planning and implementing tasks at a professional or equivalent level
Generate graduates capable of synthesising their detailed understanding of engineering design and related material science in order to offer confident justified solutions to complex, unpredictable and open ended situations.
