The Additive Manufacturing program from Uppsala University will provide you with a robust theoretical understanding of additive manufacturing and 3D printing processes, and the practical skills to apply such methods to solve real-life problems.


As a master's student at the Additive Manufacturing program from Uppsala University you will learn to create complex physical objects through 3D-printing and computer-assisted design processes in materials ranging from amorphous metals to biocompatible materials. Become a part of the initiative that gather research and education in the field of additive manufacturing at the Ångström Laboratory, one of Europe's most advanced functional materials laboratories.

Additive manufacturing is a rapidly expanding field of technology that has developed from the simple application of 3D printers into an entirely new way of designing and manufacturing objects, paving the way for new and unexplored possibilities. Along with the Internet of Things and Big Data, additive manufacturing is considered one of the cornerstones of the coming industrial revolution, Industry 4.0.


The Swedish manufacturing industry projects a large demand for candidates with additive manufacturing qualifications. As part of the programme, students will establish relationships with various companies, and in return, those companies will have access to highly employable candidates. Europe also has a strong labour market, with many companies looking to hire candidates with skills in AM.You also have the option of staying in academia and pursuing a PhD, either at Uppsala University, where research on and involving AM can be found in the engineering sciences, chemistry, physics and medicine, or at other Swedish and foreign universities

Programme Structure


  • The subject material progresses from metallurgy to powder manufacture to printing metal to alloy design. 
  • Similarly, the coursework will see you delve into subjects spanning polymer chemistry to printing polymeric materials and more in the concluding elective special courses.
  • In regards to structural design, the programme includes courses on solid mechanics and generative design.
