Industrial Digitalisation

This new taught Masters' programme offers a very much hands-on entry route to the fascinating opportunities offered within Industry 4.0. Whilst covering all aspects of industrial digitalisation, the course will centre around additive manufacturing (also known as 3D printing). The aim of the programme is to educate and train work-ready, capable and equipped professionals; better placed to fulfil the requirements of higher-paid positions within Industry 4.0 and contribute to its further research and development. You will learn how to digitally model, design and evaluate components and products; some of which cannot be made using other methods of manufacture. We strongly embrace a 'fail-fast, fail-often' design approach so that you can learn which parts of your designs work, and which need redesigning. You will 3D print a large number of these models on-site using our wide range of stereolithography (SLA) and fusion deposition modelling (FDM) printers. In addition, you will perform post-production operations in a dedicated laboratory to finalise your creations. The programme is positioned at the cutting-edge of technology and examines how UK manufacturing could be transformed through the adoption of industrial digital technologies (IDT). As such, as part of this programme, you will visit complex technical organisations to witness the impact that is being made.

Entry requirements

MSc: A minimum of 2:2 in a UK Honours degree that contains laboratory or practical components is normally required. Examples of relevant degree subjects include: Engineering, Product Design and Technology, Computing and Digital Technology, Graphic Design, Fashion Design and Technology and Interior Design. Equivalent EU/international qualifications are also accepted. Applicants who don't meet these criteria will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
