About EITM Master School - MSc Additive Manufacturing for Full Flexibility, MSc, Double Masters - at EIT Manufacturing

The Additive Manufacturing for Full Flexibility (AM) program is a Master of Science level program within the EIT Manufacturing (EITM) Master School.  The EITM Master School is a highly prestigious Manufacturing Engineering and Science education provider on an advanced level with a focus on Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E). The education at EITM Manufacturing Master School combines technical competence with skills in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. EIT Manufacturing Master School students will be an elite group of forthcoming engineers, operators, innovators, and other relevant professionals.

Additive Manufacturing for Full Flexibility (AM) is a combination of studying manufacturing science including the physics of additive manufacturing processes, mechanical design including exploiting the design freedoms enabled for more customized products and services, and production management including the flexibility enabled for smaller lot production. During the program, students will gain new skills in these areas.

  • In manufacturing science, relevant fields include molten material physics, heat transfer, and deformation.
  • In design engineering, relevant fields are numerical and topological optimization, process physics simulation, new concept generation and design engineering.
  • In production management, relevant fields include logistics, digitalization and quality.

Students will learn the latest theoretical knowledge and know how to apply their skills to practical real-life problems. Typical application areas of AM include rapid prototyping, flexible pattern and mold manufacturing, lightweight systems, and flexible manufacturing systems.

Program structure:

The first year is spent at one university (entry) and the second year at another (exit) university in two different European countries. The combination of entry and exit university is called a student study path.

The following universities provide an entry year (first year):
