3D PRINTING FOR EDUCATION
3D printing is changing the way the world designs and manufactures. Whether in consumer goods, architecture, healthcare, industrial manufacturing, automotive, or nearly any other industry, additive manufacturing has been widely adopted to prototype, iterate, and produce end-use products. While Industry advances, Academia must embrace and adapt new technology to mitigate the skills gap and prepare students for the career paths of the future.
BRIDGING THE SKILLS GAP
As 3D printing adoption in the workplace rises, organizations are increasingly facing the challenges of bridging the additive manufacturing skills gap. Advancements in 3D printing have opened up almost limitless applications for the technology in nearly every industry.
Employers have pointed out one missing piece of the puzzle: Staff generally lack the skill set necessary to leverage this solution to its full potential. This gap requires a new personnel pipeline, and Industry is looking to Education to fill it.
The existing workforce is often unfamiliar with the latest additive manufacturing technologies, and the rate of innovation and advancements in 3D printing make it difficult for even the most savvy companies to keep up. Building a more additively skilled workforce demands well-equipped educational institutes with programs and technology to facilitate learning.
