Advanced Manufacturing and Design in the Walker Department of Mechanical Engineering is particularly strong in the area of additive manufacturing — also known as 3D printing — and nano-scale manufacturing. We innovate and advance the state of the art in engineering new processes, machines, predictive modeling capabilities, and design strategies. We complement these innovations with core expertise in robotics, quality control, design engineering, computational engineering, and materials processing, and motivate our work with applications as varied as medical devices, honeycomb materials, and biomaterials.
