Course summary

Additive Manufacturing, or 3D printing, is an exciting new field using diverse technologies for equally diverse applications. It’s now possible to print everything from aerospace parts to biological tissue and even houses. The MSc in Additive Manufacturing gives you the skills to use these new technologies to their full potential.

  • This is an advanced course with an emphasis on the design, analysis and implementation of Additive Manufacturing (AM) projects.
  • The course is suitable for engineers who have recently graduated as well as those with experience. It’s an opportunity to extend your knowledge in Additive Manufacturing or update your qualifications with a view to promotion or a specialist role.
  • It will equip you with the engineering knowledge and practical skills necessary to develop AM strategies for real-world problems. We will use modern scanning equipment and mesh editing software to reverse engineer parts, and we’ll use modern CAD tools including topological optimisation to design parts for AM.
