Learning outcomes

After passing the course, the student must be able to:

  • use previous knowledge to plan a study within a selected subject within additive manufacturing,
  • summarize and evaluate acquired knowledge within a the selected subject,
  • integrate, generalize and combine the aquired knowledge with previously knowledge in the field of additive manufacturing.


The purpose of this course is to give students the opportunity learn aspects of additive manufacturing that is not covered by the regular courses in the master's program in additive manufacturing. The work is peformed individually and should be focused on literature studies.

The content is defined together with the program coordinator and program advisor to promote further studies within a particular specialisation of the Master programme in Additive Manufacturing .
