Course content

Whether it is creating advanced engineering components, new kinds of prosthetic limbs, or complex pharmaceutical devices, Additive Manufacturing gives an engineer the ability to build structures with unprecedented degrees of complexity. This leads to new product generations that are completely unlike what has ever existed before. The digital and tool-less nature of additive manufacturing offers a range of new possibilities that are very exciting to today’s engineers.

This MSc programme will give you in-depth knowledge and understanding of Additive Manufacturing and 3D printing technology. You will gain the skills needed to:

  • evaluate the application of Additive Manufacturing technologies
  • apply methods in a project context
  • design additively manufactured devices
  • undertake individual research projects
  • critique, analyse, and communicate research findings

You will have access to the Additive Manufacturing laboratory within the Centre for Additive Manufacturing and will be taught by world-leading researchers using an impressive range of Additive Manufacturing machines and other technologies. Our research and teaching takes place in the new purpose built Advanced Manufacturing Building on Jubilee Campus.
