Earn a Graduate Certificate in Additive Manufacturing and Design Online
Additive manufacturing, more commonly referred to as 3D printing, is redefining how components are designed, manufactured, and certified. Building three-dimensional parts layer-by-layer gives engineers unprecedented freedom to design lightweight structures, consolidate assemblies of multiple components into a single part, and functionally grade structures to improve performance. To make the most of this revolutionary technology, engineers should have a firm grasp of the science and limitations of raw materials as well as the processes that allow them to be used in the design of parts and products.
Gain the Knowledge You Need to Succeed in the Additive Manufacturing Field
This 12-credit, non-laboratory graduate certificate can provide you with knowledge and skills in additive manufacturing and design that can open doors to new career paths and further education focused on additive manufacturing and design. It can serve as an entry into fields that make use of 3D printing, including aerospace, consumer goods, energy, medical, and oil/gas. It’s also an excellent way for already established engineers to add foundational knowledge of this emerging technology to their résumé and skill set.
You can earn the Graduate Certificate in Additive Manufacturing and Design by successfully completing three of the four non-laboratory courses in the Additive Manufacturing and Design Graduate program.
