Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering

The School of Engineering, Manufacturing and Logistics has a long established track record of delivering industrially relevant undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

Collaborations with organisations such as Ford Motor Company, Visteon, Calsonic Kansei, Belron and, more recently, Tata Technologies ensure that both teaching and research is informed by contemporary industrial problems and best practice. Our programmes are further enhanced by visiting lecturers from industry, who provide industrial perspectives. Graduates are thus well prepared to take up roles as engineers and managers in 21st Century industry.

In 2006, the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and TWI Ltd, the operating arm of The Welding Institute, came together to create the NDT Validation Centre, a pioneering project which could revolutionise the performance of key manufacturing and construction industries. This collaboration fuses TWI's world-renowned experience in research and development in NDT, and the Universities well-established track record of industrially-biased education and research.

The School has also been given an excellent rating by the Department of Transport and Industry (DfT) for its 'Knowledge Transfer Partnership' collaboration with a local small business.

The School is also well equipped with a range of resources including:

  • Three CAE laboratories with software including UGC IDEAS for 3D modelling, Finite Element Analysis and CADCAM, Fluent for Computational Fluid Dynamics, Granta Engineering Selector for materials and process selection and Matlab for systems simulation.
  • Manufacturing centre, including traditional machine tools, Haas turning and 4-axis machine centres, Renishaw Cyclone scanner and co-ordinate measuring machines.
  • Rapid prototyping, including 3D Systems sterolithography and MCP vacuum casting facilities.
  • Materials laboratory with a range of testing equipment.
