The EDAM program addresses the science and engineering of advanced manufacturing processes.
It is part of the new Micro-Manufacturing Science and Engineering Center (M2C).
Advanced manufacturing is diverse, multiscale and multidisciplinary. It requires fundamental knowledge in materials, solid and fluid mechanics, surface and interface science, multiscale modeling, process and system engineering. More specialized topics include control system theory, production flow optimization, micro- and nano-fabrication, laser processing, metrology, additive and subtractive 3D manufacturing, assembly and joining processes, sustainability and cost analysis.
