Course Description:
Fabrication of advanced materials and robotics are elements of the manufacture of the technology we use in our daily lives, such as aeroplanes and cars, so understanding these processes is vital to a mechanical or material engineers' training. This module offers an advanced investigation of materials, applications and high-tech manufacturing systems; focussing mainly on composite laminates and robotics. You will learn to design a composite; using, for example, carbon fibres, to get the required properties. Furthermore, you will analyse aspects of robotics, from how this technology functions, to use of robots for industrial purposes. Completing this module enables you to explain in detail how manufacturers create many advanced technology products, and how advanced manufacturing systems work. Finally, the module provides ideal preparation for pursuing a career in manufacturing or materials processing. Prerequisite module: ECM2103 or equivalent Corequisite module: ECM3160 or equivalent
