Additive manufacturing initiative at the Ångström laboratory
unites the different research efforts, and the education connected to additive manufacturing at the faculty of science and technology at Uppsala university.

AM research at Ångström

At the Faculty of science and technology at Uppsala university, there are a number of different research projects running where additive manufacturing is a major part of the research theme.

Research projects in AM

Infrastructure for AM at Ångström

At the Ångström laboratory there are substantial infrastructure for research in additive manufacturing. 3D-printers for all kinds of materials (polymers, ceramics, and metals) are used in different research projects. Some of the equipment is maintained and handled by the AM@Å initiative, and is available to all research groups; other equipment belongs to individual research groups.

Presently the equipment is spread out at different labs, but during 2022 a new common AM-lab will be organised, which will house both common equipment maintained by AM@Å, but also co-locate other equipment from different research group to create joint laboratory with suitable infrastructure.

Education in AM at Ångström

An international masterprogramme in additive manufacturing was started autumn 2020, and is annually accepting new students. Application deadline is january 15th, each year. More information on the central university web:

AM master's programme

Additive manufacturing is also being integrated into courses at other undergraduate study programmes, particularly our Swedish programmes in materials science ("Q") and materials chemistry ("K-material").

There are regularly bachelor and master thesis by students at Uppsala university, following different study programmes, that involve different aspects of additive manufacturing. Finished and published theses are found through the university's publication database, using the keyword "additive manufacturing" .

During autumn 2019 a graduate course for PhD students was also given in "3D printing for biomedical materials". This course will be given in the future as well, contact Wei Xia for more information on this course.

AM seminars at Ångström

The initative organises seminars on AM-related topics, which are open for all interested.
