Center for Innovative Materials Processing through Direct Digital Deposition
Workforce Development, Education, and Outreach
While CIMP-3D is at the forefront of advanced design, process, and materials research, we also seek to further the use and application of AM technology in industry.
To achieve this, we engage in a range of workforce development, education, and outreach activities at the Center and beyond. In this way, we hope to prepare both the current and future engineering workforces.
