MSc (Res) Additive Manufacturing and Advanced Manufacturing Technologies

Programme code: MECT58

Additive ManufacturingEnhance your knowledge and skills in the rapidly developing field of additive manufacturing (also known as 3D printing) and advanced manufacturing technologies with this MSc course. It's aimed at both new graduates and professional mechanical engineers.

This 12 month course has been developed to meet the demands of industry and will expose you to cutting-edge manufacturing techniques and applications. You’ll gain practical experience in research, including training in research methods and management.

There are specialist modules in additive manufacturing, state-of-the-art manufacturing technologies, materials and a broad range of modules in advanced mechanical engineering. You'll carry out an industry-focused research project on additive manufacturing, working with both commercial and bespoke manufacturing technologies using high performance materials. Further optional modules are available, allowing you to customise the course based on your interests or career aspirations.

The investigative MSc project takes place within our internationally renowned Centre for Advanced Additive Manufacturing (AdAM) under the guidance of world-leading academics in this field. The AdAM centre, with its state-of-the art facilities, carries out research in collaboration with industry in areas of novel process development, materials, simulation and design for aerospace, automotive and medical sectors.
