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.
