The practice of additive manufacturing involves testing and validating new materials and materials processed in new ways. Metal additive manufacturing applications operate in highly regulated environments, and therefore require significant and complex testing, analysis and validation to meet safety regulations. In SEM723, you will learn to execute best practice for testing, analysis, validation and comparison of digital simulations to manufactured samples. You will gain expertise in metal additive manufacturing processes, including process planning and data analysis.  Metal additive manufacturing is increasingly used in industries such as aerospace, biomedical and automotive. You will be able to provide expertise to characterise metal parts produced for different operational environments.
