Welding Engineering MSc/PgDip/PgCert
Full and part time
The key features of the Welding Engineering postgraduate level programme include:
- Tailored for industry
- Exceptional facilities unique to Cranfield
- World-class welding research activity
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 application of welding and 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. The Welding Engineering 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.
This course is suitable for science, materials or engineering graduates keen to pursue careers in welding engineering; or graduates currently working in welding engineering keen to extend their qualifications; or individuals with other qualifications who possess considerable relevant experience.
