Outreach Visits

​NTU Additive Manufacturing Centre is not all industry research and collaborations but very much into nurturing the next generation of engineers specializing in the Additive Manufacturing field. Part of a lineup of activities include Outreach talks to Institutes of higher learning to invoke the passion and interest amongst student to the amazing world of possibilities that 3D printing can offer. Hosted by Prof Chua Chee Kai and Prof Leong Kah Fai, the first and second most cited researchers in the world of 3D Printing respectively as according to the Web of Science Journal. The talk had exposed students to the technologies that started out the field of rapid prototyping and introduced them to the amazing new innovations that have brought 3D printing to whole new level.

Imagine a world where scarcity becomes a thing of the past. Latest research developments have enabled 3D printers to print not only conventional materials like polymers and metals but food products and even cells. No longer would there be situations where patients need to wait for years before a suitable donor is found, 3D bio printers would print out compatible organs generated from healthy cells in the patient’s body in a much shorter time. Students were also introduced to the various undergraduate and postgraduate options available at the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering that encompass 3D printing in its curriculum and the various scholarships options available.
