The Fraunhofer Personnel Certification Authority at Fraunhofer FIT certifies qualifications in the field of Metal Additive Manufacturing Design.
The certificate "Metal Additive Manufacturing Professional – Design" certifies graduates with practically applicable knowledge of how the potentials of additive manufacturing (functional integration, integral design, lightweight construction, etc.) are transferred into a component design. In addition, a "Metal Additive Manufacturing Professional – Design" is able to handle design tasks for metal-based additive manufacturing from design to manufacturing preparation in compliance with design guidelines.
Examination topics include:
- Design guidelines for additive manufacturing
- Conceptual design and layout of additive components
- Criteria for additive design along the entire process chain
- Re-design of case studies
