15 Credits SPRING



Aims/Description: This unit will provide an insight into the design, manufacturing technology and failure analysis of glass in the biomedical, food, architecture, photonics sectors, etc. This will be in collaboration with Glass Technology Services (Sheffield). GTS will set a real technical challenge and small group sizes will undertake experimental work and present a report that will require an in-depth literature review. To supplement the main technical challenge there will be focussed technical seminars on relevant topics. These topics will be provided by both academics and engineers. In addition, GTS will provide seminars on employability and communication skills. There will be at least two industrial visits to glass manufacturers.
