Ultimaker, a 3D printer manufacturer, has recently partnered with the University of Illinois, and Coursera, an education platform that offers online courses from top universities and organizations worldwide, to create a series of 3D printing courses that will be open to learners around the world. Learners will be able to earn an online specialization from Coursera in 3D printing, through four cohesive courses and a hands-on capstone.
The courses include: An overview of 3D Printing and its revolutionary potential, an examination of 3D Printing’s applications across a variety of industries, an in-depth exploration of 3D design software and an investigation of how 3D printers are made and how they operate.
“The University of Illinois and the Illinois MakerLab are delighted to be partnering with Ultimaker on this innovative new online program on 3D printing,” says Aric Rindfleisch, executive director of the Illinois MakerLab, the world’s first 3D printing lab in a business school. “Ultimaker is one of the world’s leading providers of desktop 3D printers. Thus, our learners will have the privilege of learning from not only leading academics but also leading practitioners in the 3D printing space.”
