Academic institutions are currently racing to provide their students, especially in technical fields, an educational foundation that is relevant to the rapidly-changing industry landscape. Preparing students for problem solving in real-world situations has become increasingly important across all departments as students prepare for entering the workforce.

As manufacturers transition away from legacy processes to digital manufacturing techniques, many higher education institutions are transitioning their core curriculum to develop foundational knowledge in additive manufacturing (AM). Implementing more automated manufacturing technology is both a safer and more efficient means of walking emerging engineers and designers through a high-fidelity product development process.

In this webinar, we’ll cover some specific examples of how Universities are satisfying key educational objectives with the adaptation of AM.
