In fall 2015, we introduced the first course in our 3D Printing Certificate in Digitally Mediated Innovation Design. The certificate consists of three, three-credit courses taken in this sequence:
- “Intro to 3D Printing and Innovation Design” (ENTR 260)
- “Advanced Digital Fabrication and Transformative Making” (ENTR 360)
- “Applied Digital Innovation, Design, and Lean Fabrication” (ENTR 460)
The certificate program is a unique fusion of entrepreneurship, creative problem-solving, 3D design and lean manufacturing. Students progress from basic training in 3D printing and entrepreneurial thinking to focused, iterative modeling and prototyping, and finally, working in teams, to real-world fabrication and market testing of their creations.
The certificate program is open to any student, of any major. Students do not need to enroll in the certificate program, or fill out any paperwork—just register for “Intro to 3D Printing and Innovation Design” to get started!
