Additive manufacturing (also known as 3-D printing) has evolved to a $5.1 billion industry and is predicted to grow to a $20 billion industry by 2020. Meanwhile, the additive manufacturing workforce is not keeping up with current needs and opportunities. Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) leaders worked closely with industry to develop the Additive Manufacturing Certificate Program to meet the demand.
TEES EDGE, the professional and continuing education division of TEES, offers a hands-on, expert-led certificate program to meet industry needs.
Participants earn 2.0 CEUs/20 PDHs per session. Those completing both sessions will earn an Additive Manufacturing Level II Certificate and 4.0 CEUs/40 PDHs.
The certificate program is $2,995 per session. All sessions are held on the Texas A&M University campus. Continental breakfast and lunch are provided. Transportation and lodging are not included.
Session 1: March 21-23, 2019 | Thursday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. | Saturday, 8 a.m. - noon | The session will address Additive Manufacturing Fundamentals and Product and Process Design.
Session 2: April 4-6, 2019 | Thursday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. | Saturday, 8 a.m. - noon | The session will address Materials for Additive Manufacturing and Quality and Cost Considerations.
"The bulk of today’s practicing engineers are trained solely on the basis of subtractive manufacturing. The design for manufacturing playbook is being rewritten, due to advancements in additive manufacturing, allowing engineers to imagine and build products that were previously impossible. To remain relevant there is need for a wave of current and future engineers to be versed on these 'new rules.'"
