LIFT – Design for Advanced Manufacturing for Lightweighting Certificate
This course will teach you where Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies can be applied for design or economic advantage. You will learn lightweighting AM technologies, trends and applications in transportation industries. This course will help you demonstrate problem-solving skills in lightweighting through analysis of case studies, as well as, learning the fundamentals of materials science and how to improve properties such as strength, stiffness and ductility in a wide array of lightweight material options. Gain understanding of the use of advanced materials databases (e.g., Granta) and the impact of key market drivers on the selection criteria for critical applications in the transportation industry.
