About Additive Manufacturing Engineering at Anglia Ruskin University ARU

Design is in everything that we use. Explore how sometimes the smallest change can makes life easier. Studying our new MEng Additive Manufacturing Engineering degree course at ARU will take you through the fundamentals of mechanical engineering, covering areas such as 3D printing. You'll be ready to work towards Chartered Engineer (CEng) status after graduation.

Engineering is all about taking a product or system and looking at how it can be improved, whether it is in the development, processing, design, or even the materials used. Our new four-year MEng Additive Manufacturing Engineering degree course has been created with a focus on project-based learning, allowing you to take your in-class theory and apply it in a hands-on project module that will run throughout the year.

You will study alongside other students in the various areas of mechanical engineering, specialising in additive manufacturing in your final year and in certain modules throughout your course.

By studying our MEng Additive Manufacturing Engineering degree course, you will learn through a wide range of lab sessions, exploring manufacturing, 3D printing, thermodynamics, dynamics, and structural analysis so you can analyse, calculate, model, and experience your proposed concepts. As a part of your project-based learning you will undertake group work where you will be in a team of multi-disciplined students from across the different areas of mechanical engineering. This integrated learning will allow you to develop skills that are invaluable to future employers, including analytical and creative problem-solving skills. You'll also benefit from dedicated support from our experienced staff, who are both experienced professionals from industry and expert researchers.

Our MEng Additive Manufacturing Engineering degree course leads you through computer based advanced design, simulation and modelling practice in various topics including computational engineering, fluid dynamics, stress analysis, and industrial management. You'll benefit from using our workshop and laboratory facilities including CAD/CAM and engineering computer modelling centre, industrial-scale CNC milling and lathe machines, metal and plastic rapid prototyping machines, scanning electronic microscope, Instron bi-axial fatigue-testing machine, tensile-testing machine, material-preparation facilities, welding equipment, electronic testing and measuring equipment such as oscilloscopes and signal-generating and testing facilities, wind tunnel, air compressors, steam engine and many more laboratory facilities used during course and in individual and group major projects.

What is the difference between a BEng and an MEng course?

A BEng course will enable to you apply for Incorporated Engineer (IEng) status at the end of your course. To apply for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status you will also need to complete a Masters degree.

A four-year MEng course is a three-year undergraduate degree with a one-year Masters degree in one course. On completing an MEng course you are able to apply directly for CEng status.

Students completing an IMechE accredited degree are deemed to have met, part or all, of the academic requirements for registration as a Chartered or Incorporated Engineer and are in a strong position to move on to achieve professional engineering status after a period of initial professional development in industry.

January intake students will complete Year 1 between January and August (Trimester 2 & 3), however, Year 2 and 3 will be completed during trimester 1 & 2 between September and May. This means January intake students will only take a one-month summer break in Year 1 and will start Year 2 in September the same year they started the course. Therefore students are expected to graduate this MEng course in 3.5 years.

What students think about Anglia Ruskin University ARU

    Yang Qinlin, studying the MA Illustration and Book Arts

    Testimonial from Yang Qinlin, studying the MA Illustration and Book Arts, student at Anglia Ruskin University ARU

    "The UK has a long and distinguished history of art and design. At the same time, it has a lot of modern and avant-garde academic and industry knowledge and experience. This deeply attracted me to study in the UK and apply to the MA Illustration and Book Arts course at the Cambridge School of Art with its 160-year history. It is a very forward-looking subject, combining new technologies, traditional skills and art theories.

    I hope to improve my creative thinking, illustration skills and understanding of book art through the course. I would like to interpret traditional culture and show the world we live in by applying creativity and new techniques.

    I started the autumm trimester online due to the travel situation and am going to Cambridge in January. The MA course is very interesting but challenging at the same time. There are both theoretical and practical modules, such as Sequence and Series. I have to do a lot of academic reading with new academic terms.

    My tutors are very helpful and encouraging. After a few weeks of study, I can clearly see my own progress and achievements, in academic English reading as well as the understanding of theoretical concepts. I have tried to read extensively, including journal articles and art books."

    Alessia, studying the BSc (Hons) Business and Human Resource Management

    Testimonial from Alessia, studying the BSc (Hons) Business and Human Resource Management, student at Anglia Ruskin University ARU

    "I joined ARU two and half years ago and I made it my mission to get involved in everything I could.

    In the very first few months of university, I took part in ARU’s intern programme, working in the Faculty of Business and Law, which gave me the chance to develop my skills, get mentoring and grow both personally and professionally.

    Because ARU is such a vibrant environment, it was easy to get involved with more and I soon became a Student Ambassador, working during Open Days. Working closely with ARU’s staff made me feel so supported and encouraged that I even found the courage to challenge myself and deliver student life talks for the university and co-deliver welcome talks with faculty staff.

    I was also a course rep, which has now led me to represent the whole faculty. This is excellent for my CV as well making sure our students' voices are heard.

    All of these opportunities have built up and helped me believe in myself, in my abilities and, most importantly, boost my confidence. Of course, they are excellent for professional progression and my CV, too."

    Deividas, studying the BSc (Hons) Public Health

    Testimonial from Deividas, studying the BSc (Hons) Public Health, student at Anglia Ruskin University ARU

    Moving to a foreign country for me was extremely challenging, but right now, I am proud of my decision. I am from Lithuania, and my trip started from there. It was not easy to say goodbye to my family, friends and hobbies, but it was a new beginning in my life.

    The first day at university was scary, but at the same time, exciting. I didn't know anyone, and I was not very confident about my English level. Freshers’ Week helped me to meet new people, understand what I should expect from life in the UK and find new activities which I would do for the entire year. Day by day I started to make more connections and friends who became a part of my life at ARU.

    I spent the first month adapting to my new beginning. I had to buy lots of stuff for my room and kitchen. Moreover, I started to explore the city which would be my home for three years. Also, I met my tutors for the first time, and I started to get acquainted with the UK study system. At the beginning, for me, understanding the British accent was most challenging. I started to worry: could I do this? I was shy to ask or to say anything during class, even when I knew the right answer.

    After a few weeks, things started to get better. I started to understand my tutor better and get involved in the class. Finally, I had to comprehend that it was my new life and it was set to be a unique and unforgettable experience.
