Anglia Ruskin University’s new MSc course receives funding boost

Published: Sunday, 26 June 2016   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

Anglia Ruskin University’s new MSc course in additive manufacturing has received funding to promote computer science and engineering conversion courses.

Funding for the course has come from the Higher Education Funding Council for England, under a pilot scheme to try and increase the amount of skilled graduates in the field.

The course provided by the university is the only dedicated master’s programme which has a focus on 3D printing.

Those who have completed a range of undergraduate STEM degrees, as well as those with an engineering background, are eligible to apply for the course.

Providing facilities

Anglia Ruskin’s Chelmsford campus, which has benefited from £2 million of investment over the last three years, will provide access to workshops and engineering laboratories for students.

Importantly, the commercial 3D printers, desktop and direct metal laser sintering facility at the university’s MedBIC Innovation Centre will give students the opportunity to design, test and develop engineering solutions, using a wide range of materials.

Opportunities will also be given for students to work within companies to carry out projects that will try and deliver solutions to real-world manufacturing problems.

Alongside developing engineering skills and competency, which are crucial within the industry, students will also develop an understanding of the production and business issues that revolve around 3D printing projects.

Opportunity for students to develop

The course will begin in September 2016 and will ensure that students are able to develop a career in advanced manufacturing engineering, or to improve their skills if they already within the industry.

Covering a vast amount of topics from 3D CAD modelling to product design and engineering management, the course will equip graduates with the skills necessary to produce prototypes and products across a range of industries, including aviation.

According to Dr Habtom Mebrahtu, deputy head of engineering and the built environment at Anglia Ruskin and course leader for the MSc in additive manufacturing, the degree can move students a step closer to a career in consultancy, project management and operations.
