The concept of 3D printing first emerged in 1976 with the development of additive manufacturing materials for prototyping purposes. From then on, unbelievable progress has been made in this field.
Given the importance of this technology in areas such as medicine, the University of Salamanca, through the BISITE Research Group, has launched, once again, its Master’s Degree in Technologies applied to 3D Design and Printing, directed by Juan Manuel Corchado Rodríguez.
This is a hybrid training course that has two enrolment periods (October and February). Over the years, students from many countries have enrolled in the course. In addition, to help students combine their studies with other academic and work activities, the methodology is based on adapting to each student.
Uses and applications of 3D printing
Over the course of the programme, students will be under the guidance of a range of teachers who are professionals in the sector and are up-to-date on the wide-ranging possibilities of 3D printing. Modules will cover the fundamentals of product development, 3D design and organic modelling, the digitisation of physical products and reverse engineering, and the development of market-oriented products, entrepreneurship and business. In addition, there will be a choice of one of three specialisations: health, engineering or education.
Today, 3D printing is essential for advances in medicine such as the creation of prostheses, used not only to replace limbs, but also to create replicas of teeth or cellular tissues, improving the lifestyle and quality of life of the people who need them. Growing use in this and other fields means that the job market is booming, which is why this Master’s Degree at the University of Salamanca offers guaranteed internships and employment opportunities. Thanks to internships, professionals in the sector can be well prepared for the challenges of their profession.
We invite you to participate in this year’ s course, we have extended the pre-enrolment period until 21 October 2022. You can obtain more information and register for the Master’s Degree in Technologies applied to 3D Design and Printing by clicking on this link.
