To to evaluate current and emerging advanced engineering materials and manufacturing processes such as the ones used in polymer products and in rapid manufacturing and prototyping technologies. The aim is to develop a critical understanding as to how these materials and associated manufacturing processes can be exploited. The module will offer an opportunity to design, develop, manufacture and evaluate a sustainable engineering solution for a bespoke application. The module will allow the students to undertake a group based design, make and test investigation project based around open ended case study data. The work is expected to exploit the available advanced manufacturing processes of metal based ALM and 5 axis CNC manufacturing.
You will attain proficiency in the application of analytic techniques used in computational solutions of fluid mechanics and heat transfer problems. Additionally, computational fluid dynamics tools will be presented, with particular emphasis on problem-solving in rapid prototyping, rapid manufacturing and product design.
This module will allow you to evaluate and interact with current and emerging machining processes used to compete with additive layer manufacturing and prototyping technologies. It will offer you a critical understanding as to how these processes are employed and exploited.
The MSc Dissertation enables you to undertake an in-depth individual research project in an area directly linked to your subject area and interests. This will ensure that you undertake scholarly work that further develops an aspect of the taught material and thereby contributes to your personal development and training towards professional practice. This module evidences your transformation from undergraduate to master’s level achievement through the process and production of a recognised research output in your subject area.
This module will enable you to evaluate methodologies and systems available for the evaluation of raw materials and finished parts manufactured by a range of manufacturing methods to include ALM processes and CNC machining. This will allow you to develop a critical understanding of how these quality control and validation processes are employed and exploited by product developers and manufacturers
This module will enable you to evaluate current and emerging rapid manufacturing and prototyping technologies and in so doing develop a critical understanding of how these processes can be employed and exploited by product developers and manufacturers.
By studying this module you will develop the personal and professional skills required to design and undertake research in your chosen subject area at post graduate level.
