Additive manufacturing continues to expand at The MTC

July 15, 2019

The Additive Manufacturing (AM) curriculum at the MTC continues to expand to support the growing industry requirements. As the National Centre for Additive Manufacturing (NCAM), The MTC supports the effective exploitation of current and emerging AM processes by bridging the gap between market requirements and process reality.

MTC launched ten new courses in early 2019 with the significant advancement of the fastest growing metal forming technology, which is being delivered via a variety of methods including online learning, face-to-face and virtual classroom. The choice of delivery methods makes training courses at the MTC more accessible, providing greater flexibility to learners and increased opportunities for education and development in one of the industry’s fastest growing sectors.
