Course content

Manufacturing within the Centre for Materials and Structures in the School of Engineering encompasses world class research into novel advanced manufacturing techniques and systems.

The areas of interests are wide ranging and can be interdisciplinary with applications across all areas from aerospace and automotive components to the development of novel advanced bio-medical implants and devices. Current research areas include:

  • Additive layer manufacturing;
  • Laser based blown powder additive manufacture;
  • laser forming;
  • laser cutting;
  • laser welding;
  • laser drilling;
  • ultra short pulsed laser micro and sub-micron structuring;
  • parallel processing with spatial light modulators;
  • materials processing with advanced polarisation states;
  • optical trapping for engineering manufacture;
  • selective laser melting (SLM);
  • direct write of conductive and functionalised materials;
  • laser curing of conductive links and thin films;
  • laser ignition;
  • rapid prototyping;
  • rapid manufacture;
  • internal structuring of glasses and dielectrics.
