The module descriptors for our undergraduate courses can be found below:
- Four year Aeronautical Engineering degree (H401)
- Four year Aeronautical Engineering with a Year Abroad stream (H410)
Students on our H420 programme follow the same programme as the H401 spending fourth year in industry.
The descriptors for all programmes are the same (including H411).
Design for Additive Manufacturing S1
It is vital that the next generation of engineers and designers are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to harness the full potential of Industry 4.0. Part of this new industrial revolution is Additive Manufacturing; an exciting and fast developing area of digital manufacturing.
On completion of this module, students will be better able to:
Additive Manufacture overview:
The delivery of this module requires students to bring their own laptops (these are not provided).
This module is delivered through a series of lectures and accompanying practical tutorials. Each tutorials is assigned a homework task which is assessed as part of the module grade. In addition each homework task demonstrates an individual skill associated with DfAM. Students are then challenged to demonstrate these skills collectively in their larger coursework submissions.
Assessment is coursework based. This is done through a mixture of media; practical laboratory testing, viva examination, poster and report.
Students will receive written feedback for their coursework submissions. In addition a poster symposium is delivered at the end of the module and oral feedback will be provided at the event.
Students receive continuous formative feedback from module leaders and GTAs during tutorials.
