Nanyang Technological University (NTU) opens a research centre for 3D printing technologies. There, students should learn more about 3D printing and develop new printing technologies.
3D printing is a global growing market and a growing number of companies and research institutions work with this technology. Only a few days ago the technology giant HP has announced the first 3D printer of the company. The new research centre was funded with the help of the state Singapore.
At NTU, we have some of the world’s leading scientists and engineers in this field to research, develop and facilitate industry adoption of 3D printing applications to strengthen Singapore’s economy and better the lives of people. We aim to groom the next generation of 3D printing engineers so as to grow the much needed manpower for this rapidly developing sector
At the official opening of the research centre, the Minister for Trade and Industry S Iswaran also joind. He wants that Singapore’s companies work together with the research center. Furthermore the research center should define new standards for the 3D printing industry. To work together with the industry the center has already established partnerships with some of the biggest companies of Singapore: ST Engineering, Keppel Offshore & Marine Technology Centre, Sembcorp Design and Construction and Emerson Process Management. More information about the research centre is available on their website.
