This is your chance to be at the forefront of the latest advances in 3D printing and advanced engineering design. Whether you already hold a degree in engineering or have a related physical sciences, design or mathematical background, this course will develop your skills and knowledge in additive manufacturing to meet the demands of industry worldwide.
Covering a range of topics from product design to 3D CAD modelling, additive manufacturing strategy to engineering management, our course equips you with the end to end knowledge required to produce prototypes and products across a range of industries including the biomedical and aviation sectors.
Our impressive facilities will provide you with access to advanced computer based analysis and modelling software, together with leading-edge engineering facilities including 3D printers and a metal direct metal laser sintering machine.
Throughout the course, emphasis is placed on the development of problem-solving skills, together with those critical, analytical, interpersonal and computational skills, which are directly applicable to additive manufacturing engineering.
Recognising the importance of teamwork to the success of organisations and projects, the Course includes the development of the knowledge and skills required to effectively lead and manage teams. It also recognises the growing importance of environmental influences and the demands of health and safety.
Our course will help you develop a career in engineering, or give you an additional skills boost if you’re already working in the industry. You may want to work as a production or research engineer, mechanical designer or technical lead working directly in engineering and design or, use this degree as a step towards a career in operations, project management or consultancy. You’re also in the perfect position to continue your research with our Professional Doctorate in Science and Technology
You’ll be assessed in a variety of ways, including written assignments, portfolios, presentations, analysis reports and an Industry Based Project. Additionally, non-cognate but numerate degree holding applicants will be provided with self-contained on-line learning material for 'Manufacturing Processes' and 'Engineering Materials' to narrow the gap in knowledge prior to joining and/or during the course.
The Faculty of Science & Technology is one of the largest of five faculties at Anglia Ruskin University. Whether you choose to study with us full- or part-time, on campus or at a distance, there’s an option whatever your level – from a foundation degree, to a BSc, MSc, PhD or professional doctorate.
Whichever course you pick, you’ll gain the theory and practical skills needed to progress with confidence. Join us and you could find yourself learning in the very latest laboratories or on field trips or work placements with well-known and respected companies. You may even have the opportunity to study abroad.
Everything we do in the faculty has a singular purpose: to provide a world-class environment to create, share and advance knowledge in science and technology fields. This is key to all of our futures.
