Tribology is the essential underpinning science of lubrication, friction and wear, it is paramount to the efficient operation of numerous mechanical systems such as engines, gearboxes, human joint implants, manufacturing, sustainable energy and ship performance.
Led by world class experts from the National Centre for Advanced Tribology (nCATS) this programme provides a thorough professional knowledge of advanced tribology.
The programme is deisgned for graduates, or similarly qualified individuals, with a mechanical engineering or scientific background (chemistry, chemical engineering, physics, materials science, metallurgy) who desire specialisation in Advanced Tribology.
Careers in tribology stretch across various engineering industries from automotive and oil and gas to marine and medical engineering.
The goals of the course are to give you:
an advanced knowledge of tribology which can deliver robust tribologically engineered solutions with enhanced performance and sustainability of machines
an understanding of the design, use, lubrication and computational analysis of tribological systems and an appreciation of their limitations
The aims of the programme are to:
