Apart from the PhD students, there is also a need to retrain or grow the talent pool in this area. This will be done through a specialization in Additive Manufacturing embedded in the existing MSc programs on Manufacturing Systems and Engineering and Smart Product Design. In addition to the MSc degree, a certificate would be given to the students. This certificate requires the students to do an industry based project in addition to the three courses.
Possible Industrial Projects
A student has to undertake a project for the MSc specialization. Industry sponsored projects will be preferred with a supervisor from industry and one from NTU. Possible project topics:
- Development of Biocompatible Photoresins for Liquid-based Additive Manufacturing Processes
- Additive Manufacturing of Refractory Materials, such as Tungsten and its Alloys
- Additive Manufacturing of Light Weight Components for use in Aerospace Applications
- Additive Manufacturing of Hearing Devices
- Additive Manufacturing of On-Demand components for Offshore and Marine Applications
