The Additive Manufacturing for Full Flexibility (AM) programme is a Master of Science level programme within the EIT Manufacturing (EITM) Master School. The EITM Master School is a highly prestigious Manufacturing Engineering and Science education provider on advanced level with a focus on Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E). The education at EITM Manufacturing Master School combines technical competence with skills in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. EIT Manufacturing Master School students will be an elite group of forthcoming engineers, operators, innovators, and other relevant professionals.
Additive Manufacturing for Full Flexibility (AM) is a combination of studying manufacturing science including physics of additive manufacturing processes, mechanical design including exploiting the design freedoms enabled for more customized products and services, and production management including the flexibility enabled for smaller lot production. During the programme students will gain new skills in these areas.
- In manufacturing science, relevant fields include molten material physics, heat transfer, and deformation.
- In design engineering, relevant fields are numerical and topological optimization, process physics simulation, new concept generation and design engineering.
- In production management, relevant fields include logistics, digitalization and quality.
Students learn the latest theoretical knowledge and know how to apply their skills in practical real-life problems. Typical application areas of AM include rapid prototyping, flexible pattern and mold manufacturing, lightweight systems, and flexible manufacturing systems.
