Mechanical Engineering MA, Additive Manufacturing in Metal, 7.5 credits

Looking to become an expert in Additive Manufacturing (AM) for metals? Our comprehensive course covers everything you need to know, from analyzing the principles, possibilities, and limitations of AM methods, to comparing them to conventional manufacturing techniques. You will also get an introduction to other non-metallic materials. We'll give you an introduction to post-processing for metal AM parts, and show you how to prepare files for metal AM, with a focus on Powder Bed Fusion (PBF) methods. You'll also learn about cost models for conventional and additive manufacturing. With dedicated lectures from experts in the field, you'll stay up-to-date on the latest trends, innovations, and developments in the metal additive manufacturing arena. By the end of the course, you'll have the skills to select the right post-processing methods, prepare builds, and calculate manufacturing costs. Sign up now to become an AM expert!
