Stratasys, a provider of 3D printing and additive manufacturing systems, has teamed up with Dunwoody College of Technology as it incorporates additive manufacturing into its curriculum.

Dunwoody College of Technology, located in Minneapolis, 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.

“I see additive manufacturing as an essential partner to the traditional manufacturing process,” says E.J. Daigle, the Dean of the schools Robotics and Manufacturing Department. “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.”

Dunwoody uses a Fortus 400mc and two Fortus 250mc 3D Production Systems as teaching tools in its program. By collaborating with Stratasys, Dunwoody will expand its curriculum and offer a certificate program for students and professionals around the country.

“The partnership allows Stratasys to collaborate with Dunwoody’s talented instructors who have years of experience in manufacturing technology,” says Stratasys’ Education Manager, Jesse Roitenberg. “Manufacturers are in need of a trained and talented workforce that is up-to-date on how additive manufacturing can enhance traditional processes, and this partnership will begin that evolution in training.”
