The training proposal will not be limited to laboratory activities for students, but aims at activating a training program at various levels, in order to cover the entire course of studies. Moreover, events will be organized at a local level, addressed at the industrial world or at the local population.
The program will involve professors and researchers both from inside and outside University of Pavia and collaborators coming from partner companies.
The different levels of training that are currently assumed to provide:
Virtual Modeling and Additive Manufacturing
The course – accessible by both students and professionals from Association of Engineers- aims to provide the bases for the study of additive manufacturing techniques (or 3D printing), following the growing demand from various fields of application, in the industrial and the medical world.
The course will provide basic elements on the additive technologies available on the market, on the materials that can be used, on the potential applications in the medical, architectural and engineering (civil and mechanical) fields.
The lessons, organized by experts in the various sectors, will provide the student with a broad vision of the potential of additive technologies in the various fields.
Will be mainly addressed to university students and intended to carry out an extensive training activity on the issues of the project, given the importance of their knowledge at work. The seminars will be held both by teachers actively engaged on issues of the project, both from industrial partners, which may explain their activities and research lines in collaboration with the University. Moreover, it will be an important chance for companies to describe the working skills they demand and for students to better understand what knowledge is required for a specific job. As discussed before, the job market is start demanding skills regard rapid prototyping technologies and additive manufacturing: thus, following the paradigm of “Third Mission of the University”, that wants to maximise the benefit of the presence of the University on the local context, seminars will be organized not only for people from University.
In this context a great support comes from Historical Colleges of Pavia: in particular, Borromeo College, one of the most ancient and important colleges, has expressed its interest in supporting such informative activity. Prof. Auricchio already took a conference at Borromeo College on the topic of 3D Printing (Flyer).
