DVIRC Offers Composites Technology Track

November 11, 2014

DVIRC and their regional partners are offering the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Immersion Courses for 3D printing and Composite Technology. These courses are intended to accelerate the rate of adoption of advanced manufacturing technologies through innovative processes. The courses are made available through the DVIRC, University of Delaware, and NextFab Studio and seek to train regional manufacturers on cutting edge technologies and foster their adoption to become more competitive in the global economy. The Immersion Courses are available at no cost through a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration (ETA).

The Composite Technology track is a three-day course taught by leading experts and held at the University of Delaware Composite Center. Each day of this intensive course will include both classroom and laboratory sessions for a hands-on and industry immersion approach. You will learn an introduction to composite materials and processing techniques. Within the laboratory sessions you will be able to design your own part applying what you have learned, using the composite software. Once the part is completed, you will test the part to make certain that it meets the design criteria.

In previous sessions feedback, students found the hands-on approach very helpful, taught by qualified and impressive Scientists, useful and practical information, and provided an excellent foundation for future research within the field.

The Center for Composite Materials at The University of Delaware College of Engineering, is an internationally recognized center of excellence with a mission to conduct basic and applied research, providing outstanding education to scientists and engineers, and to develop and transition technology.
