Overview

Welding is integral to the manufacture of a wide-range of products. This course provides the practical and theoretical knowledge required to become a welding engineer and a materials and joining specialist. Cover modern welding techniques, automation, metallurgy, materials science, welding processes, design, quality and related equipment.

Welding is integral to the manufacture of a wide-range of products, from high power laser welding of large ships, to microjoining of thin wires to circuit boards. The joining continues to expand; in the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries; in transport, including automotive, aerospace, and shipbuilding; in manufacture of electronic systems; in defence industries; and in general manufacturing. This MSc addresses these needs, and covers a wide-range of areas that are part of modern welding technology such as automation, metallurgy and materials science, welding processes, design, and quality.

Programme structure

The course comprises seven assessed modules, a group project and an individual research project. The modules include lectures and tutorials, and are assessed through practical work, written examinations, case studies, essays, presentations and tests. These provide the ‘tools’ required for the group and individual projects.

Career opportunities

Successful students develop diverse and rewarding careers in engineering management in a wide-range of organisations deploying welding technologies. Roles include the management of welding manufacturing operations, and management of design and fabrication of welded structures. The international nature of such activities means that career opportunities are not restricted to the UK. Cranfield graduates develop careers around the world.
