Construct a brighter and more efficient future – layer by layer. As a master’s student in additive manufacturing, you will learn to create complex physical objects through 3D-printing and computer-assisted design processes in materials ranging from amorphous metals to biocompatible materials. Become a part of the initiative that gather research and education in the field of additive manufacturing at the Ångström Laboratory, one of Europe’s most advanced functional materials laboratories.
Additive manufacturing is a rapidly expanding field of technology that has developed from the simple application of 3D printers into an entirely new way of designing and manufacturing objects, paving the way for new and unexplored possibilities. Along with the Internet of Things and Big Data, additive manufacturing is considered one of the cornerstones of the coming industrial revolution, Industry 4.0.
Additive manufacturing uses 3D printers and other tools to create a physical object one layer at a time based on a computer-assisted design model. It is possible to make prototypes and develop products in a very short space of time. Materials that cannot be manufactured using conventional technology can be printed and components can be made lighter and more durable, which can also have a major impact on the carbon footprint of products.
Additive manufacturing is currently used for producing mechanical components and tools, medical and surgical implants, and in models that facilitate surgical planning, to name but a few important applications.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
Additive manufacturing (AM) is a field of technology that has developed from simple 3D-printing into a key area of technology for the manufacturing industry of the future. Alongside the Internet of Things and Big Data, additive manufacturing is considered one of the cornerstones of the future Industry 4.0.
In additive manufacturing, 3D printers and other tools are used to create a physical object layer by layer from a computer-aided design model. Today, additive manufacturing is used in industrial manufacture, medical and surgical implants, fashion and the cultural heritage sector, to name but a few prominent applications.
The Master’s Programme in Additive Manufacturing at Uppsala University will provide you with a robust theoretical understanding of additive manufacturing and 3D printing processes, and the practical skills to apply such methods to solve real-life problems. These skills are highly sought-after in multiple large industries, and the field enjoys a strong projected labour market in the private sector. During the study programme, you will work on projects with various companies and have the opportunity to demonstrate your abilities.
As the programme has strong ties to current research in the field, with many of the lecturers in the programme being active researchers, you will also be positioned at the forefront of the field’s development. The new investment in additive manufacturing at Uppsala University gathers researchers working on the development of printable materials, equipment and new industrial possibilities and applications. During your studies you will have the opportunity to use equipment used in both research and industrial production.
You are someone with not only a theoretical foundation in materials engineering, materials chemistry and/or mechanical engineering, but also curiosity about how additive manufacturing methods can be utilised to solve a variety of real-life problems.
The programme leads to a Master of Science (120 credits) with Additive Manufacturing as the main field of study.
