Technologies and digital manufacturing
The fundamental technologies underpinning digital manufacturing are:
- additive manufacturing
- simulation and modelling
Their combined use is facilitated by:
- image recognition
- network communications
- geometric modelling
- established academic strengths in all the key technologies associated with digital manufacturing
- both the breadth and depth of research activities needed to underpin a postgraduate programme in this area
- staff who have a comprehensive knowledge of both the state-of-the-art and also emerging trends and technologies
The aim of the program is to allow students with a background in engineering to enhance their first degree with a specialist programme that blends theory and practice.
Recent studies have identified digital skills gaps in a range of manufacturing and engineering worldwide industries.
This means our engineering graduates will find many career options open up to them. Whether in research or industry, Digital Design and Manufacturing students at The University of Edinburgh have a bright future in engineering and beyond.

A UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent, in Mechanical, Manufacturing or Industrial Engineering.
Competence in programming is essential. During your degree you must have completed a programming course in a high-level language (such as C++, C#, Java, Python or equivalent).
If you apply with an academic background in another field you may be considered if you have completed the equivalent of 40 credits of courses related to manufacturing technology. Your marks for these courses must be equivalent to UK 2:1 as a minimum.
Examples of courses relevant to this degree are:
- manufacturing systems
- advanced manufacturing technology
- industrial systems engineering
- industrial information systems
- industrial automation
This requirement may be partially met by relevant industrial experience. Applicants with non-standard backgrounds may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
