Composite Design (top up)
Why choose this course?
The utilisation of composite materials has grown extensively over the past few decades in industrial applications. Composite materials are very complex systems comprising two or more different types of materials. Therefore, a design of composites is a complicated and challenging problem which combines knowledge of materials, ability to design and manufacture composite products.
This BEng Composite Design (Top-Up) is designed to equip students with essential theoretical and practical knowledge. The programme provides an up-to-date detailed overview of different types of composite materials (polymer, ceramic and metal matrix composites), advanced materials (hybrid, smart, nano, etc.), their manufacture and design.
It will be delivered by academics from research and industrial backgrounds through lectures, active learning sessions and hands on practical lessons. A range of laboratory facilities is provided, and includes a materials laboratory, a fully-equipped specialist composite workshop (Advanced Composite Training and Development Centre) and a variety of design software (CATIA, ABAQUS and ANSYS).
