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.
Additive Manufacturing Certificate
45-hour, Level II Certificate
A one-week certificate program will be offered Monday, August 20 - Friday, 24, 2018, from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. on the Texas A&M University campus.
A certificate program, to be completed over two weekends on the Texas A&M campus, will be offered Thursday, September 20 - Saturday, September 22, 2018, and Thursday, October 18 - Saturday, October 20, 2018, on the Texas A&M campus. The course will be 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays; 8 a.m. - noon on Saturdays. Participants must attend both weekends to earn the certificate.
The certificate program is $7,995 per participant or $6,500 per participant for companies sending 4 or more to the program. Continental breakfast and lunch are provided during the modules. Transportation and lodging is not included.
"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.'"
