Every teenager is ready to answer the question - what is 3d printer?

But not every experienced engineer can imagine where and how additive technologies can be applied in mechanical engineering and especially in metallurgy. This is the subject of our online course.


The use of additive technologies is one of the clearest examples of how new developments and equipment can significantly improve traditional manufacturing. 

We will consider what additive technologies are for the metallurgical and machine-building industries. For what purposes it is possible to use selective laser fusion, laser cladding and finally detonation spraying.

Which of the world's leading steel companies are already interested in these technologies and how additive technologies can change our future.


The entire course is designed for 6 weeks. As part of this course, the following subsections will be available to you: 

  • Video-lectures. Each topic of the module contains one video lecture that reveals the topic.  
  • Lecture notes
  • Tests. You'll have 4 obligatory tests, selfchecking tests and final exam test.
