Mandatory Courses

Course Number Course Name Course Description
MANU 10051 Solid Modelling for Additive Manufacturing An introductory overview of solid modelling including the software that is readily available to support the creation of an STL file, the file type that is required to drive additive manufacturing and 3D Printing. Materials included.
MANU 10052 Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing Discuss the fundamental processes, applications and technologies including an introduction to design. Observe and participate in hands-on application of additive manufacturing principles and 3D Printing. Materials included. Solid modelling experience is suggested.
MANU 10053 Design Optimization & Generation of Form In this course students will explore design optimization and generation of form for additive manufacturing and 3D printing.  The course includes a review of software, tools and high strength lightweight structural design for optimal production in additive manufacturing.
MANU 10054 Additive Manufacturing Safety Considerations There are occupational health and safety considerations unique to additive manufacturing.  This course introduces the concepts, hazards and methodologies for approaching these considerations including manufacturing, equipment materials management and storage.
MANU 10055 Additive Manufacturing Post-Processing Objects made through additive manufacturing must go through additional processing to transform them from crude structures into functioning parts for industrial applications.  In this course, the different post-processing techniques such as heat treating, bead blasting and hot isostatic pressing (HIP) will be explored in addition to appropriate application.
