Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), a private research university located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States has announced 11-week online course on additive manufacturing for professionals. The new online course, which is set to commence from October 2018 is being offered to help professionals create new products, processes, and business models using 3D printing.

In the new course, which is offered by MIT’s MIT xPRO platform which offers online courses for professionals, MIT faculty and industry experts will help professionals to learn how to address the full spectrum of AM technologies. As a part of the course, professionals will also learn how to design parts for AM, leveraging advanced CAD, generative design, and process planning software.

The course will help professionals understand the fundamental principles and workflow for AM of polymers, metals and composites. The participants of the course will also acquire vocabulary necessary to learn the complex, multivariate landscape of additive manufacturing equipment, materials, and applications.

In addition to theoretical knowledge, the 11-week-online-course will also offer professionals hands-on experience on how the technology works. For example, the online course will conclude with an in-depth case study where professionals will solve a real-world design or business strategy problems using knowledge of AM.

The online course, which costs $1950, has been designed keeping in mind manufacturing, design, or engineering professionals across industries that will be influenced by products, tools, and business models enabled by AM. The course is also well-suited for professionals already using AM in an engineering environment or those tasked with implementing AM in their organisations.
