Additive Manufacturing, or 3D printing, is an exciting new field, which uses a range of diverse technologies for equally diverse applications. It is now possible to print everything from aerospace parts to biological tissue and even houses! This course is designed to give you the skills required to utilise these new technologies to their full potential. You will have access to the Additive Manufacturing lab in the new Engineering Innovation Centre, housing some of the latest AM equipment. Learning will be largely project based, with hands-on use of equipment and software. The course will include relevant industry visits, guest speakers and industry related projects. You will work alongside our research active staff with the possibility of continuing on to PhD research. Students will be given the opportunity to build their own 3D printer (to keep) and develop new or enhanced Additive Manufacturing technologies.
