Presentation Title Engineering Better Additive Manufacturing Education: Leveraging Research-based Approaches to Prepare the Future Workforce

Abstract Scope Industry demand for a skilled additive manufacturing (AM) workforce is rising rapidly. However, despite the growing prevalence of AM systems and education at the university level, workforce demand is not being met. Further, the majority of AM education research is still in the nascent stages. This makes it difficult to ensure that teaching approaches are effectively and efficiently preparing students to understand, use, and design for modern AM technology. In response to this gap, this presentation discusses research-based approaches to AM education, with particular emphasis on teaching design for additive manufacturing concepts. Examples draw from ongoing research and practice at Penn State and include investigations into the use of problem-based learning and virtual reality to affect how students consider design for AM. Discussion will also include details regarding the design and implementation of a first-of-its kind Additive Manufacturing and Design master’s degree program offered simultaneously in-residence and online.
