Harness the power of 3D printing

Additive manufacturing (AM), broadly known as 3D printing, is transforming how products are designed, produced, and serviced. AM enables on-demand production without dedicated equipment or tooling, unlocks digital design tools, and offers breakthrough performance and unparalleled flexibility across industries. But, knowledge remains one of the greatest barriers to AM's wider adoption. So, how can you leverage the potential of AM to drive innovation in your organization?

Join MIT faculty and industry leaders for an online course that will give you the knowledge and confidence to architect and implement innovative uses of AM across the product life cycle and accelerate your career in this rapidly emerging field.

AFTER THIS COURSE, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO:

Understand the technical principles and workflows for AM of polymers, metals, and composites.

Assess the value of an additively manufactured part based on its production cost, performance, and use case.

Design parts for AM by combining process knowledge, computational design tools, and application requirements.

Navigate the complex, multivariate landscape of AM equipment, materials, and applications.

Learn how to select an AM process and material for a specific application.

Evaluate the business case for transitioning a product to be made using AM versus a conventional approach, either in part or in whole.

Share your cutting-edge perspective on digital transformation and the factory of the future.

Identify how, when, and where AM can create value across the entire product lifecycle.
