There's a strong practical element and you'll develop your skills through individual and group projects, using facilities that include:-

  • CAD (ProE)
  • CAM (Vericut, Machining Strategist)
  • rapid prototyping (3D Printing, FDM, SLM and vacuum casting)
  • reverse engineering (laser scanner and x-ray scanner).

As well as receiving excellent tuition from our world-renowned academics you'll be able to listen to visiting product designers and professors from the Royal Academy of Engineering talk about advanced concepts and case studies.
