Beginning fall 2017, working engineers and technical professionals can build and expand their expertise in processes used to synthesize 3D objects with a new graduate program at the University of Maryland (UMD) in Additive Manufacturing.
These new programs will give students unique access to hands-on training in various methods of design, fabrication and production systems under the coaching of world-class faculty in the A. James Clark School of Engineering. Students will also benefit from university resources like the Makerbot Innovation Center, a 3D printing space available to all UMD students.
“The demand for engineers with a strong skill set in additive manufacturing continues to grow as these technologies revolution design and manufacturing. Our new programs will help engineers at local companies and government contractors advance their career or pursue new career opportunities,” said Dr. George Syrmos, Executive Director of the Office of Advanced Engineering Education. Students of these programs will be able pursue careers in aerospace engineering, healthcare and dentistry, machine tool manufacturing and more.
These programs are designed specifically for working engineers, enabling busy professionals to pursue a graduate engineering degree while still maintaining their full-time job. Classes are offered outside of business hours on-campus and via video-teleconferencing at remote locations across Maryland.
