School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering Manufacturing/3D Printing

Manufacturing is emerging as a central focus of research in the WSU School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering (MME). Researchers from diverse backgrounds study many aspects of the manufacturing process, including materials science, process engineering, and manufacturing machinery. WSU MME particularly emphasizes additive manufacturing technology (commonly known as 3D-printing) and aims to revolutionize manufacturing in the coming decades. MME is pursing ongoing research in the additive manufacturing of metals, polymers, ceramics and composites, as well as their groundbreaking application, such as in biomedical devices, artificial tissues, optics, electronics, and aerospace.
