Abstract

There has been a sudden surge in 3D printing technologies within the past few years. Consequently, many educational institutions are trying to implement 3D printing in their curriculum to make it more challenging and appealing. However, the process is quite challenging as it needs experience and professionalism to select and employ the best courses and practices for this matter. This work is directed into sharing the best procedures and practices for implementing 3D printing in mechanical engineering education at UAE University. The courses described in this paper include geometric modelling (MECH315), Fluid Mechanics Laboratory (MECH348) and Mechanics of Materials (MECH305). Using 3D printing in these courses motivated students to be more involved in their learning process and enhancing their hands-on experience in additive manufacturing technologies.
