You'll learn about cutting-edge additive, subtractive and hybrid manufacturing technologies, spanning the entire manufacturing process, from supply of materials to final assembly. The taught modules are informed by world-leading research from the Centre for Advanced Additive Manufacturing (AdAM) and the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) and you will have the opportunity to apply what you have learned to an industrially motivated research project. This is an ideal course if you are interested in pursuing a career in advanced manufacturing.
To give you a fair chance of succeeding on your course, we need to make sure you have enough experience in relevant subjects. All of our MSc courses are designed for students who have completed a degree similar to our BEng Mechanical Engineering.
Many of our MSc students come from different subject backgrounds, including aerospace, automotive, civil and marine engineering courses, as well as mechatronics, manufacturing, mathematics and physics.
We would like to see evidence of experience in the key subject areas listed below:
We would normally expect to see these subjects on your transcript. If you have studied these topics as part of modules with very different titles, you will need to indicate this on your application form.
This course is accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and meets, in part, the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer status. Our MSc graduates who also have an accredited BEng (Hons) will be able to show they have met all the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
