I am working with Terry Wohlers of Wohlers Associates to include an
important section in Wohlers Report 2012, an in-depth study on the
developments and trends in additive manufacturing (AM) worldwide. The
section, titled College and University Education and Research, provides a
summary of activities from institutions around the world. I am seeking
input from educational and research institutions that are involved with

Would you please submit a brief (50-75 words maximum) summary that
describes your primary research and/or educational focus and any
noteworthy or recent advancements, announcements, or breakthroughs at your
institution? The comments should be related to AM. The following is an
example summary from Wohlers Report 2011.

Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand: The AUT Center for Rapid
Product Development is conducting research in curved layer FDM with
conductive materials for plastic parts and integral conductive tracks;
bioprinting of diagnostic tests and cellular bandages; and 3D-printed
porous ceramic parts. It is also doing research on the management of AM in
the design process and the impact of AM on product sustainability.

Would you please provide your brief summary by February 20 I would
appreciate it very much. Let me know if anything is unclear.

Best regards,
