Rob Sharman, Global Head of Additive Manufacturing, GKN Aerospace.

1.69, Queen's Building.

Rob will talk about GKN's involvement and approach to additive manufacturing (AM) - a disruptive, revolutionary technology that will impact global manufacturing. AM covers a suite of different processes all following the principle of creating components layer by layer, enabling the production of complex structures directly from 3-D CAD models. 
Hear how GKN are pushing the boundaries with this revolutionary technology. What's possible and what's next?
Refreshments afterwards - all welcome.
For an hour after the lecture, the Faculty of Engineering Employability Adviser Gareth Hughes (Careers Service) will be available in the Pugsley Lecture Theatre Foyer (Queen's Building) for students to drop in and talk about anything careers related, including any queries, CV advice and how to access further support.
The Inside Track Lecture series is aimed primarily at students - speakers from a range of industries will share their inside knowledge. All lectures will be followed by a Question & Answer session, a chance to meet the speaker(s) over drinks and a related LinkedIn discussion.
