NSERC CREATE: Additive Manufacturing (AM) in Engineering Design & Global Entrepreneurship

Additive Manufacturing (AM) At A Glance

Over the past two decades, innovations in nanotechnology, ultralight multifunctional materials, and metamaterials have led to a new paradigm in the application of advanced materials in the aerospace, automotive and bioengineering sectors, which are major industrial areas in Canada. However, it is only with process and material advancements in Additive Manufacturing (AM), a process in which materials are built additively layer by layer and commonly known as 3D Printing, that the development and application of these materials become feasible on an industrial scale. AM is revolutionizing manufacturing globally by significantly reducing costs, improving production efficiency and facilitating new product innovations.

The AM-EDGE Training Program

The proposed Additive Manufacturing in Engineering Design & Global Entrepreneurship (AM-EDGE) CREATE program addresses the primary objectives of the CREATE program, made possible by the generous support of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) of Canada, by offering students and PDFs innovative and collaborative learning environments, incorporating internships, student mobility, and professional training
