Students will learn about the evolution of digital fabrication with a full overview of the manufacturing industry and related technologies. Through hands-on, project-based learning (PBL) courses, students will design and fabricate 3D objects using computer-aided design (CAD) software and 3D printers. Students will experience the design process and become familiar with the advantages and limitations of each 3D printing technology, as well as analyze real industry cases and apply 3D printing technology appropriately. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive an Additive Manufacturing Certification from Stratasys. Participants can also complete the Forklift certification.
The FANUC robotics training is a stackable credential added to the 3D Printing program. During robotics training, students develop skills and knowledge including safety, terminology, basic robot operation, and more with hands-on training with a FANUC Robot. After robotics training, students may receive a FANUC iRVision Level I or II certificate.
