Abstract

Manufacturing equipment and technology will continue to be an integral part of engineering education. Using advanced and modern equipment and technology not only emphasizes hands-on activity-based teaching and learning, but it also makes the educator and the program competitive. There are many advantages to implementing 3-d printers in engineering education; however, there are also some challenges. In this paper, a two-year implementation of 3-d printers in a traditional material processing undergraduate engineering course has been presented and discussed.
