|University website:||Metal Additive Manufacturing|
Additive Manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is revolutionising industrial production. It allows precise manufacturing of stronger parts with reduced waste and energy consumption. AM technology has redefined how everything from medical devices to aerospace structures are designed, manufactured, certified and brought to market. Your programme in this green technology is the first master-level programme in the world focusing on both materials science and engineering as well as AM. Fully English-taught and designed in partnership with industry, you’ll have access to advanced researchers and innovative labs. In the second year, you’ll complete an industry placement in Europe, Asia or South America, followed by your master’s thesis.
We are witnessing the fourth industrial revolution – Industry 4.0. Additive manufacturing, the Internet of Things and big data are at the centre of this changing landscape. Mechanical engineers in research and industry are using additive manufacturing to help us find innovative solutions in production technology, digitalisation, environmental technology, climate technology, life sciences, etc.
Unlike conventional manufacturing technologies, AM reduces waste and energy consumption. This green technology enables precise on-demand parts manufacturing and repair, accelerates the development of new and better parts and enhances product durability.
To master metal additive manufacturing, you will need advanced engineering skills as well as competence in several additional fields. In this programme, you will develop a strong foundation in mechanical engineering, materials science, and additive manufacturing technology.
Then, you’ll build expertise in design, materials, processes, applications and part qualification for metal additive manufacturing.
