The Manufacturing Engineering with Add Manufacturing for Full Flexibility programme at the University College Dublin it is a double degree programme, coordinated by EIT Manufacturing Master School, between UCD and other universities around Europe i.e. Aalto University, Finland, Ecole Centrale de Nantes (ECN), France, Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI), Italy, University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Italian Switzerland (SUPSI), Switzerland, Institut Polytechnique de Grenoble (Grenoble INP), France and and Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien), Austria. The first year is spent at UCD (entry university) and the second year is spent at another (exit) university as listed above. Students choose one of three minors offered as part of the programme i.e. Additive Manufacture for Full Flexibility, Zero-Defect Manufacturing for a Circular Economy, and Platforms for digitalized value networks.Additive Manufacturing for Full Flexibility (AM) is a combination of studying manufacturing science including physics of additive manufacturing processes, mechanical design including exploiting the design freedoms enabled for more customized products and services, and production management including the flexibility enabled for smaller lot production. During the programme students will gain new skills in these areas.
- In manufacturing science, relevant fields include molten material physics, heat transfer, and deformation.
- In design engineering, relevant fields are numerical and topological optimization, process physics simulation, new concept generation and design engineering.
- In production management, relevant fields include logistics, digitalization and quality.
Students learn the latest theoretical knowledge and know how to apply their skills in practical real-life problems. Typical application areas of AM include rapid prototyping, flexible pattern and mold manufacturing, lightweight systems, and flexible manufacturing systems.
Career & Graduate Study Opportunity
There is strong demand throughout Europe for graduates of manufacturing degree programmes to be better equipped for the marketplace than their predecessors have been. There is strong need for graduates to have direct experience of industry, to have a practical awareness of important developments within the sectors of Europe’s manufacturing industry (e.g., increased digitalisation, demands of Industry 4.0, growth of additive manufacturing and robotics, etc.), to have a greater awareness of innovation & entrepreneurship, combined with an international perspective that is the direct result of personal experiences. The ME Manufacturing Engineering will prepare you for high level technical positions, Innovation roles and business profiles, including the capability to create your own start-up. It will also allow you to create a professional network at national and international level through the several initiatives and the EIT alumni communities.
