Welcome to the Advanced Manufacturing program at Mines.
Manufacturing technology is rapidly evolving across many different industrial markets. The need to improve both affordability and performance has driven growth in advanced techniques like additive manufacturing. Further growth is expected as agile business practices such as just-in-time manufacturing and mass customization take hold.
These new concepts are disruptive and difficult to implement with legacy manufacturing techniques. Companies must adapt to these new practices to remain competitive and expand their markets.
The Advanced Manufacturing program was created to address the interdisciplinary training needed for the next generation of manufacturing engineers working with these new disruptive technologies. Currently the program has a strong focus in additive manufacturing, though the curriculum is continuously evolving. The Advanced Manufacturing program at Mines offers a non-thesis master’s degree and a four-course professional certificate. Both options expose students to a survey of additive manufacturing topics along with focused courses in design, materials, and data informatics. Electives are available across a wide range of traditional engineering disciplines, and can be tailored to each student’s interests. These courses provide engineers with the tools necessary to make informed decisions on how best to leverage and benefit from these new manufacturing technologies.
We have designed the Advanced Manufacturing program with the working professional in mind. Core courses are offered either early in the morning or late in the afternoon, and run consecutively when possible to minimize workday disruption. Online course offerings are in development and will go live in the fall semester of 2019.
Details of the program can be found on this site along with a contact link for questions. We look forward to having you in our program!
