SOUTH East Technological University (SETU) has launched a new online series of courses to give professionals a greater understanding of the far-reaching impact of 3D printing. This is the process of constructing an object layer by layer and is also known as ‘additive manufacturing’.
Expressions of interest are now being taken for the first module, ‘Introduction to additive manufacturing’, which begins in March. The certificates are fully flexible, self-paced and are tailored to suit the diverse needs and busy schedules of industry professionals, managers and engineers. Each module takes approximately 12 weeks to complete and is worth ten credits.
The standalone modules form part of the level 7 Bachelor of Science in Additive Manufacturing course, which was launched in 2022. The degree course will soon be taking applications for the third cohort of students. It is part of the AMASE (Additive Manufacturing Advancing the South East) project and is funded by the Higher Education Authority’s HCI Pillar 3, a government initiative dedicated to enhancing collaboration between higher education and enterprise, with a specific focus on innovative teaching and learning practices.
James Redmond, who was among the first group of students to graduate with a degree in Additive Manufacturing from SETU, said: “The additive manufacturing industry is growing rapidly and will sit alongside a lot of other manufacturing processes. The course was an opportunity for me to further my career and has opened a lot of doors for me. I would recommend it to anyone thinking about getting into the manufacturing or engineering sectors.”
Participants on the certificate course can expect a curriculum led by expert lecturers, providing insights into the latest trends and technologies in additive manufacturing. The programme will also facilitate networking opportunities, ensuring a rich and collaborative learning experience. For more information, visit www.amase.ie.
