Dunwoody College of Tech Taps Private Partner To Help Expand 3D Printing Curriculum

Minnesota's Dunwoody College of Technology is expanding its additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, curriculum with the help of a private partner.

The Minneapolis-based institution "has been on the forefront of manufacturing education for over 100 years. Because additive manufacturing is becoming a more mainstream technique, Dunwoody decided to increase emphasis on it in its program."

The college, which is using Fortus 400mc and Fortus 250mc 3D production systems in its programs, has teamed with the manufacturer of those machines, Stratasys, to expand the curriculum and offer a certificate program in additive manufacturing.

"I see additive manufacturing as an essential partner to the traditional manufacturing process," said E.J. Daigle, the dean of the school's Robotics and Manufacturing Department, in a prepared statement. "Not only do we want to give our students the tools to intertwine both, but we saw a need for businesses in the industry to further their education. Stratasys has been the ideal partner for the development of our courses and curriculum."

Founded in 1914, Dunwoody College of Technology is a private, nonprofit institution serving approximately 1,400 students with about 140 faculty members. The college offers associate's and bachelor's degrees, as well as certificate programs for students and professionals.
