Advanced Manufacturing

Advanced Manufacturing is the development and use of innovative technologies for the fabrication of products. Without advancements in manufacturing we could never hope to increase efficiency or improve the sustainability of manufacturing process we take for granted.

Advanced manufacturing has three research thrusts:

Precision and nano processing technologies

Cross-scale fabrication and advanced manufacturing technologies  Life cycle engineering 

Precision and nano processing technologies 

Multi-scale fabrication and advanced manufacturing technologies

Sustainable manufacturing and life cycle engineering
