A Free 90-Minute Virtual Classroom Session on 3D Printing from MIT

Title: Additive Manufacturing: From Prototyping to Production
Date: Tuesday, December 05, 2017
Time: 2:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
Duration: 90 minutes

Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D Printing, is poised to change how products are developed, produced and delivered to consumers across the globe. Despite rapid industry growth, we have yet to come close to tapping AM’s full potential.

This 90-minute online learning session is a fast, effective way to learn from MIT faculty experts in additive and smart manufacturing about the cutting-edge of industrial 3D printing - from new materials and processes to the latest applications and technology trends. Join Professor John Hart as you discover how additive manufacturing is being used to transform business models and revolutionize manufacturing at scale.

Participants in MIT’s Virtual Classroom will also be given the chance to learn more about MIT’s Short Programs offering, Additive Manufacturing: From 3D Printing to the Factory Floor, a five-day summer course that allows professionals to build on their knowledge, develop hands-on design and manufacturing skills with industrial equipment, and tackle real business problems with guidance from world-class faculty and industry partners.

“Without the fundamental knowledge of AM’s technical capabilities and profound implications on how we do business, we can’t fulfill the promise of additive manufacturing.”

- Professor John Hart, instructor of MIT Professional Education’s new Virtual Classroom, Additive Manufacturing: From Prototyping to Production.
