3D printing has infiltrated nearly every industry, and these devices became viable only six years ago. At Montclair State University, we believe it is imperative for our students to understand this cutting-edge and pervasive technology. Equally important is placing our students at the nexus of design thinking, innovation, creative problem-solving and entrepreneurship.

An exciting course touches on all of this: “Intro to 3D Printing and Innovation Design” (ENTR 260). In this course, students will be introduced to the basics of entrepreneurship, creative design thinking, and 3D design and printing. Working in teams, students will practice innovating and coming up with solutions to problems by developing and testing simple 3D prototypes. 3D printing is a hot area right now—don’t leave Montclair State without knowing something about this important technology!

The course is open to undergrads of any school, any major—you do not need to be a “techie” to take this course. The course is listed as ENTR 260 “Intro to 3D Printing and Innovation Design” and will be offered in Fall 2017:

Mondays, 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
Wednesdays, 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.  &  5:30 - 8:00 p.m.
Thursdays, 10:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.  &  2:30 - 5:00 p.m.

The Intro course is the first of three courses in our 3D Printing Certificate in Digitally Mediated Innovation Design. Please note ENTR 260 courses do not count toward the Certificate of Entrepreneurship; however they can be used as an ENTR elective in the Entrepreneurship minor. If you have questions about the certificate and minor, please contact Sharon Waters, program manager, at or 973-655-6803.
