The Additive Manufacturing and Joining Technologies (Polytech - Ecole Polytechnique) program at Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU) will cover: AM and JT, powder production and characterization, metallurgical and mechanical properties, residual stresses and post-treatements, topological optimization. 

The school program is suitable for students and engineers interested in these technologies and topics. All studies are developed in accordance with the European requirements and can be recognized as a period of study abroad.

Skills and competence

AM and JT Basics

The first part of the course dedicated to the introduction of concepts, technologies, influence of process parameters on metallurgical and mechanical properties and characterization techniques. Could be attended by everyone who would like to have a general overview in AM and JT.

Advanced topics in AM and JT

Technical topics and challenges in AM and JT (laser-matter interaction, friction-induced plastic strains, fast solidification, phase transformations, process simulation, and topological optimization) for people who attended the first week and/or senior engineers and scientists.
