4 year PhD Studentship, Faculty of Engineering, University of Nottingham EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing

University of Nottingham - Engineering

Location: University Park

Title: Scalability of Additive Manufacturing

The doctoral project will be based at the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham. Over the course of this project you will have access to one of the most comprehensive Additive Manufacturing (3D-Printing) laboratory facilities. For more information, please see http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/additivemanufacturing/index.aspx .

Project description: 
The fundaments of the operation and management of Additive Manufacturing in industry are still poorly understood. To address this requirement, this doctoral project will investigate the scalability of Additive Manufacturing technology and its industrial implementation. In particular, it will research the advantages and limitations of scaling up the technology and, as Additive Manufacturing forms an inherently digital approach to manufacturing, will explore available network effects potentially shaping its value proposition.

The project will be supervised by Dr Martin Baumers and Prof Chris Tuck.
