What is the best masters degree to pursue for 3D printing?

, 3D printing consultant for additive manufacturing & 3D printers.

3D Printing is a lot of mechatronics and sits at the intersection of software, electronics, mechanical engineering, materials science, software and robotics. Any degrees in these areas would be a good fit especially if you were knowledgeable about materials + mechanical engineering or software and materials science or other combinations of the above.

A mechatronics degree would be an excellent choice.

There are also dedicated 3D printing and additive manufacturing programs that would be an excellent foundation to have. There are very few people with degrees and Phds in Additive Manufacturing and expectations are that these people will be in high demand.

Loughborough has an excellent name in the field.

Loughborough has a few degree programs:

Advanced Manufacturing Engineering and Management

Additive Manufacturing Research Group

Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing Research Group

MSc(Res) Advanced Manufacturing Technologies

Advanced Manufacturing Systems and Technology

Do you want to develop technologies for use in 3D printing, or do you want to offer your services to end users as a 3D printer/printing consultant?

For the first, electrical or mechanical engineering, or higher-end computer programming (not just writing code) would work.

For the second, take the money you would have spent on the degree, buy a 3D printer and the software to run it, and set up a website with some examples of your work. Some classified ads in the local media will also help, as well as a listing in the yellow pages.

I have been working in 3D printing for going on 9 years now. I have an art degree. I always recommend them. They teach you how to think differently and if your already ambitious all you need to do is learn. There was a printer onsite and I just combined random classes that I thought that would help with learning about 3d printing. My teachers were very supportive me in the art program. The idea of3D printing educationwas kinda of un heard of at the time but they all saw the value in what I was doing. I still work some of the same teachers that supported me when I was just learning. I get to help make their art. Its very rewarding. Robotics are great if you want to build printers.
