MIT’s move into 3D Printing education

Recently MIT announced their new 3D Printing course

But knowledge of the fundamentals of AM, its design principles, applications, and implications is one of the greatest barriers to its wider adoption. How can you harness the potential of AM and use it to drive innovation in your organization?

They are probably right that the largest obstacle to wider adoption is currently knowledge, but I suppose that could be said about most things.

It seems this course is aimed at the person in an organization that is not professional in 3D Printing but still wants to/needs to use it as part of their larger operations. Regardless, MIT has a certain gravity in 3D Printing due to its early successful alumni and proximity to companies like Markforged, Formlabs and Desktop Metal.

Step in the right direction for the industry and from a larger perspective makes me think we are really in the very early years.
