Course Description

Industrial studentships of up to ?10,000 available* School Scholarships available - up to ?9,000 plus UK fees* High-technology products fundamentally depend on a range of ultra precision systems and processes. Next generation products for space, aerospace, energy production, displays, sensors and advanced medical devices demand ultra precision technologies in order to achieve their superior functionality. The course has been designed to equip engineers and scientists with an understanding of the underlying principles of important ultra precision technologies as well as provide exposure and understanding of their state-of-the-art applications. Students will study all aspects of ultra precision technologies including the philosophy of determinism, fundamental precision design and metrology principles, critical computer-based design and application tools, detailed knowledge of ultra precision processes and their applications. Strategic approaches to safeguard technology management, intellectual property and product innovation are reviewed. The Ultra Precision Technologies programme is truly world-class, led by Cranfield University, with support from the Opto-electronics Technology and Incubation Centre (OpTIC) in North Wales, the Optical Science Laboratory of University College London and the Institute for Manufacturing at the University of Cambridge. Course modules are delivered at three locations - Cranfield, OpTIC and Cambridge. Accreditation. This course is accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) on behalf of the UK Engineering Council as meeting the academic requirements for Chartered Engineer status. Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) students complete eight modules and the group project. Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) students complete five modules and an assignment. Modules: Precision Engineering Metrology and Optical Testing Managing Innovation and New Product Development Computer-aided Engineering for Ultra Precision Optical Design and Fabrication Surface Engineering and Coatings Modern Optical Technologies Laser Micromachining and Surface Structuring Group project There is a strong emphasis on applying knowledge in the industrial environment.This involves working in teams to fulfil demanding objectives within a tight timescale, applying state-of-the-art technologies and approaches, and delivering results to a high professional standard. For part-time students a dissertation usually replaces the group project. Individual thesis project The individual project provides students with the opportunity to research,develop and apply technologies in their chosen area, developing their depth of understanding and ability to provide ultra precision solutions. Many of the projects are supported by external organisations. Suitable for physics and engineering graduates with an interest in the development of ultra precision systems and processes for high-technology products. The part-time option will allow practitioners to enhance their professional development within their current employment. Takes you on to a wide range of careers involving ultra precision systems and processes, with responsibilities in research, development, design and management in a range of markets including optoelectronics and displays, medical devices, aerospace, space, defence, and automotive. You will be taught by world-renowned experts in ultra precision from Cranfield University, with support from subject specialists at the Opto-electronics Technology and Incubation Centre (OpTIC), the Optical Science Laboratory of University College London and the Institute of Manufacturing at the University of Cambridge. *Conditions apply.
