TOP 5 3D Printing Additive Manufacturing University Degrees

As 3D printing andadditive manufacturingbecome mainstream, an influx of professionals who specialise in the area will be needed. Therefore, a small number of universities have already started offering additive manufacturing and 3D printing university degrees. These university degrees will become hugely useful in the future as 3D printing becomes integral tosportdesignmaritime, and more. We searched for five of our favorites offered by a mix of the best UK and US universities to come up with our list. The degrees are not in order of best university or 3D printing degrees.

Nottingham, a well-reputed university in the UK, offer a Masters (MSc) degree in Additive Manufacturing and 3D printing. This is a 1 year course, requiring an engineering or similar degree studied at undergraduate level prior. The course starts in September, involving modules in additive materials, metrology, and advanced additive manufacturing techniques. Nottingham University is a member of the Russell Group, due the high level of research funding the university receives, as well as its high achievement.

One of, if not the most prestigious universities in the world, MIT also offers a course in additive manufacturing. Though not a full masters degree, MIT offer a 5 day course which offers an insight into the tech. Within these 5 days, participants learn the basics of AM, the materials involved, operate several types of 3D printer, and gain insights into a variety of technologies, such asFDMSLA,andSLS. Plus, you get to say you studied at MIT!
