Courses related to additive manufacturing at UofL
Principles of materials processing used in manufacturing; casting, forming, machining, welding, and related techniques such as numerical and computer control.
This course introduces students to additive manufacturing, also known as rapid prototyping or 3D printing, processes. An overview of all additive manufacturing processes is provided. Projects are used to develop in-depth knowledge in key applications of additive manufacturing. Design project gives students an opportunity to apply their knowledge to the design and/or re-design of a component.
This course focuses on the overview of design issues in additive manufacturing (AM), including the design of structures, materials and processes. The students are expected to gain in-depth understanding of the design issues with current AM technologies. Hands-on projects will be assigned that gives the students the opportunity of understanding the design issues and applying the knowledge to the design of functional parts and assemblies.
An introduction to the engineering design process emphasizing the use of modern computer-based analysis, design and presentation tools for mechanical engineering applications.
Introduction to manufacturing processes,with an emphasis on considerations for mechanical engineering design. Topics covered include casting,machining, forming,assembly, and modern methods for both polymer and metal materials.
This course will explore polymeric and particulate materials in the context of processes and applications associated with additive manufacturing, popularly referred to as 3D Printing.
This course focuses on the principal, commercially-realized AM processes and on the processing and materials science underlying them.
