Get Certified in 3D Printing for Social Good with TechChange
February 18, 2015 Editor 0
3D printing is primed to change our physical world. Twenty years after the Internet and cell phones fundamentally changed how humans communicate with each other and exchange information, this new technology is set to revolutionize the way that we make products by bringing factory to the people and ushering in a new era of innovation and creativity in manufacturing.
Already 3D printers have been used to print low-cost soft-tissue prosthetics and medical supplies like customized tracheal valves, umbilical cord clamps, and splints. Efforts are underway to make it possible to print things like solar panels, greenhouses, dental implants, and more.
The potential of 3D printing to assist in response to global development and humanitarian challenges will increase dramatically as 3D printers become more sophisticated and affordable and a number of patents expire.
Will you be part of this coming revolution, or will you be left behind, like switchboard operators and mimeograph repairmen? Keep your skills sharp, and invest in your career with the first ever online certificate course in 3D Printing for Social Good, offered by TechChange.
Inspired by a thought-provoking IREX Deep Dive on 3D Printing and a webinar with e-NABLE, this four-week online certificate course will explore case studies across a range of sectors from disaster response to health, to agriculture, and energy. It will attempt to address questions like:
- Can 3D printing truly provide significant reductions in supply chain time and costs?
- How might it be introduced inclusively into communities so as not to augment the digital divide?
- How long before it can effectively benefit the world’s most marginalized individuals?
Like all TechChange courses, the online certificate course in 3D Printing for Social Good will provide a unique hands-on learning environment with animated videos, technology demos, practical activities, networking events, immersive simulations and more. This course will also feature:
- Jon Schull, Founder of e-NABLE
- Jeremy Simon, Founder of 3D Universe
- Matt Rogge, Tech for Trade
- Kate Gage, USAID
- Gabe Krieshok, Peace Corps
- Robert Ryan-Silva, DAI
And you? Only if you sign up now. Space is limited and this course will fill up fast.3D Printing for Social Good
