Additive Manufacturing Processes, 7.5 credits
Additive manufacturing (AM), broadly known as 3D printing, is transforming how products are designed, produced, and serviced. AM enables on-demand production without dedicated equipment or tooling, unlocks digital design tools, and offers breakthrough performance and unparalleled flexibility across industries. But, knowledge remains one of the biggest barriers to AM's wider adoption. So, how can you leverage the potential of AM to drive innovation?
The Additive Manufacturing Processes course offered at University West will give you the knowledge and confidence to architect and implement innovative uses of AM across the product life cycle and accelerate your career in this rapidly emerging field. The aim is to establish a basic understanding of additive manufacturing (AM) as an industrial method for the manufacture of advanced parts. The course covers knowledge of additive manufacturing processes, materials selection as well as basic aspects of manufacturing of metallic and polymeric products with respect to materials and processing technologies.
Bachelor of Science degree in materials science and engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering, manufacturing engineering, production technology, or equivalent. In addition, at least 7.5 HE credits in materials science, at least 15 HE credits in mathematics, and English 6 or equivalent are required.
