Our one-year Master of Science in Additive Manufacturing and Design (MS AMD), Master of Engineering in Additive Manufacturing and Design (MEng AMD), and Graduate Credit Certificate in Additive Manufacturing and Design programs offer students and working engineers a unique opportunity to become technically outstanding experts in additive manufacturing in residence at University Park or online via Penn State World Campus.
Our programs will prepare students to:
- Apply foundational knowledge, critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity in the uses of additive manufacturing and associated design tools and methods.
- Grow as leaders in manufacturing while maintaining the highest ethical standards in applying additive manufacturing to industry-relevant problems and design challenges.
- Strive for the advancement of the state-of-art in additive manufacturing and design.
- Develop innovative solutions through new design paradigms in their respective industries.
The programs are housed in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, but in reflection of the multi-disciplinary nature of additive manufacturing, integrate graduate coursework across multiple departments from two colleges, Engineering and Earth and Mineral Sciences. Contributing departments include Mechanical Engineering, Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering, Engineering Science and Mechanics, School of Engineering Design, Technology, and Professional Programs, and Materials Science and Engineering.
