Design, Digital & Additive Manufacturing

Liesl Folks, PhD, Dean of Engineering in front of David Hall, North Campus.

Design, digital and additive manufacturing engineers are pushing the limits of manufacturing technology, developing new energy and material-efficient approaches for fabricating complex structures.

They are advancing digital and additive manufacturing technologies to broaden the range of materials that can be used, to improve surface finish and precision of fabrication to increase the speed of 3D printing processes.

They develop designs that are optimized across multiple dimensions, working with companies to improve the efficiency of their manufacturing operations and implementing new technologies into their production processes.
