Engineering (Composite Materials)
Wrexham Glyndwr University
Key Course Facts
Much has been made of the use of composite materials in the aerospace industry with the Airbus A350XWB and the Boeing Dreamliner being headline news. However the advantages of using composite materials can be extended to the majority of engineering areas and disciplines.
The rapid emergence of composites has revealed a difficulty in supplying the industry with Engineers that have the requisite knowledge of the materials. This MSc in Composite Material Engineering has been developed with that in mind. Students will learn the full lifecycle of components designed and manufactured with composites.
From first principles, potential students will learn the constituent parts of a composite material and understand the reasons for selecting each material. From there manufacturing methodologies will be understood. Design using composites will be taught after the different types of failure mechanisms are shown. Finally repair, recycling and disposal of composites will be discussed in detail.
Students will be taught by lecturers from industrial and research background through a combination of lectures, tutorials, Laboratory sessions and computer classes. Industry standard software will be taught to enable the students to graduate with the skills required for industry.
