Additive manufacturing (AM), also termed as "3-D Printing", is a digital manufacturing process, which uses 3-D design data to build objects by depositing material, usually layer upon layer. Often referred to as the third industrial revolution, the advancement of AM technologies has brought a revolutionary change in design, engineering and manufacturing processes.

            The rising popularity of AM across various industries has resulted in an exponential increase in demand for metal powders. Powder metallurgy (P/M) is a metal working process involving production of powdered metals and/ forming precision metal components from metal powders by compacting in a die. Materials now routinely processed by P/M include aerospace super alloys, low-alloy steels, and tool steels; some of which are virtually impossible to process by any other means.

            This course provides a comprehensive overview of the science and technology of both AM and P/M processes, the materials used in those processes, geometric flexibility, industrial applications and limitations.


            As part of the curriculum, the course will include a guided laboratory tour, specializing in additive manufacturing, thereby providing an exciting opportunity to take a close look at the "state of the art" equipment. Key members of the company will be available for question and answer sessions following the tour.  


  • Design engineers
  • Manufacturing engineers
  • Research engineers
  • Technicians
  • Metallurgists
  • Quality control inspectors
  • Automobile and Aerospace Engineers 


Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Understand the concept of Additive Manufacturing
  • Discuss the various techniques used in AM process including Powder Bed Fusion, Vat Polymerization, Extrusion etc.
  •  Recognize the factors that determine material/ process selection in AM
  • Evaluate the effect of microstructural changes using the various AM techniques
  • Describe the fundamentals of powder metallurgy
  • Assess metal powder requirements, production and characterization
  • Discuss the techniques and equipment used in production
