The course consists of taught components as well as an MSc level research and development project. Teaching is provided through lectures, seminars, exercise classes, and laboratory work.
You will study alongside CDT (Centre for Doctoral Training) students to gain a thorough and detailed understanding of the principles and techniques of additive manufacturing and 3D printing, the science and mathematical theory which underpins this, and the ability to apply this to your individual project.
Modules are assessed by a combination of examination and coursework, including engineering and management reports, essays, software programs, oral presentations and a project dissertation.
The range of assessment methods provides you with the opportunity to develop and demonstrate transferable skills relevant to a wide range of engineering disciplines.
As well as providing you with the advanced skills and knowledge you need to become a professional in the advanced manufacturing and 3D sector or to pursue a related career in research, this master's level course will help you to understand the wider multidisciplinary engineering context around this rapidly evolving field. You will also:
- appreciate the social, environmental, ethical, economic and commercial considerations affecting engineering decisions
- gain a critical awareness of current problems and new insights informed by or at the of forefront additive manufacturing and 3D printing
- develop initiative and creativity in problem solving, as well as other transferable skills which can be applied throughout your career
You will have access to the AM labs in the new Advance Manufacturing building based in Jubilee Park Campus, as well as various other facilities.
English language course for academic purposes
Accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English, the Centre for English Language Education (CELE) runs 5-week English language and study skills courses for Engineering.
These courses are designed in collaboration with the faculty and prepare students going on to postgraduate MSc programmes within the Faculty of Engineering.
If you are close to the English language level you need to go on to this course and you meet the entry requirements for the relevant CELE course, you may be eligible for a joint offer. This means that:
- you only need one TIER 4 visa and CAS
- you take a 5-week English language and academic skills preparation course, and then go onto your MSc course
- your progression to the MSc is automatic, provided you attend and complete all the coursework
For more details, please visit the CELE website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
