Short Courses

1. Additive Manufacturing of Smart Materials (Code: 1701)

About the Course:

Rapidly evolving additive manufacturing (AM) technologies is a direct way of converting digital data into final parts. While rapid prototyping (RP) and rapid tooling (RT) are now accessible based on AM the next front is direct product manufacturing. Rapid manufacturing (RM) will make a significant difference in industries related to aerospace and biomedical devices. The forecast indicate that AM could reach $50 billion by 2030 and $100 billion by 2044. While in traditional manufacturing, the true costs are not transparent due to the supply chain, AM has the potential to significantly reduce the cost by modifying the design and production systems. The course, Additive Manufacturing of Smart Materials, uses examples form biomedical and aerospace applications to highlight the benefits of using AM for creating shape memory and superelastic devices.
