This specialisation will train you in the conceptualisation, design optimisation, manufacture and testing of additively manufactured parts made from both metals and polymers. The program will explore the commercial aspects in areas that range from medical devices, through specialist and one-off components, through to large-scale semi-continuous manufacture. You will examine the material characteristics that result in successful, qualified AM parts.
