Guvendiren Lab

Instructive Biomaterials and Additive Manufacturing Laboratory (IBAM-Lab)




CHE 722 - Additive Manufacturing and Applications

Graduate level elective

Target Enrollment: 24 (limited)

Course Format: The course will consist of lecture and hands-on laboratory session with extensive interaction between students and the instructor.

Course Description: This course summarizes additive manufacturing technologies and current (and emerging) applications. Technologies including extrusion-based printing, droplet-based printing, powder-based printing, and vat photopolymerization printing will be discussed in detail with respect to printing parameters, printable materials, and end-product properties. Students will learn how to select the proper printing technology and materials for particular applications. This course will be composed of a lecture and a hands-on laboratory session, during which students will create 3D designs and print functional prototypes. Students will be challenged every week to develop innovative and functioning 3D printed components.
