The 30-credit Master of Engineering in Additive Manufacturing and Design (MEngAMD) degree program offers graduate students the analytical and practical skills required to digitally design, develop, engineer, analyze, numerically model, optimize, fabricate, and inspect new components and subassemblies using appropriate additive manufacturing and digital design technologies.
All MEngAMD students will be required to enroll in five core courses that cover additive manufacturing processes, materials for additive manufacturing, the engineering and scientific foundations of additive manufacturing, design for additive manufacturing, and a hands-on laboratory experience in additive manufacturing.
In addition to the core courses, students will be required to enroll in electives (8 credits) that include design, materials, manufacturing, technical writing, technical presentations, and supply chain, along with enrolling in a seminar course (1 credit, not counted toward the degree). To meet the degree requirements, students will also be required to complete a culminating project that leads to a paper, which will be worth three (3) credits.
Course List - Master of Engineering in Additive Manufacturing and Design
You must successfully complete one 1-credit course of Colloquium, preferably in your first two semesters of the program. The following courses are offered to meet this requirement: EDSGN 590, E SC 514, IE 590, MATSE 590, and ME 590.
|Design for Additive Manufacturing||EDSGN 562||Explore design methods and tools for additive manufacturing, including opportunistic and restrictive aspects of different additive manufacturing processes and their related industry applications||4 credits|
|Scientific and Engineering Foundations of Additive Manufacturing||E SC 545||Explores processes with a focus on the fundamentals of sintering and fusion of metals, ceramics, and polymers||4 credits|
|Additive Manufacturing Processes||IE 527||Comprehensive study of the fundamentals, process characteristics, economics, and practical applications of various additive manufacturing processes||4 credits|
|Additive Manufacturing of Metallic Materials||MatSE 567||Expose students to the state of the art in understanding processing, structure, and property relationships in
materials fabricated using additive manufacturing
|Metal Additive Manufacturing Lab||ME 566||Gain hands-on experience to all aspects of metal additive manufacturing including design, prototyping, build preparation, fabrication, post-processing, machining, inspection, and characterization.||3 credits|
|At least eight (8) credit hours in 400- and/or 500-level courses offered with the following designations: EDSGN, ENGR, E SC, IE, MATSE, or ME. Note that EDSGN 596, E SC 596, IE 596, MATSE 596, and ME 596 cannot be used to fulfill this requirement.||8-9 credits|
A paper must be completed to meet the specific requirement of the culminating experience. Completion of (3) credit hours in one of the following offerings: EDSGN 596, E SC 596, IE 596, MATSE 596, and ME 596, leading to a final paper, which demonstrates student's depth of knowledge in the field of additive manufacturing and design.
