The goal of this 10-hour course is to give designers the information needed to start designing for AM at all levels - identifying and justifying use of AM technology for a particular part, selecting the right process and material for the application and ensuring it is designed with the advantages and considerations of AM in mind. The course is not intended to serve as a software-training class or as a deep dive into any specific AM process, but rather to draw connections between design and AM from a designer"s perspective.

Dhruv Bhate is an Associate Professor at the Arizona State University (ASU), The Polytechnic School, where he conducts research in the design and mechanics of Additive Manufacturing (AM) structures and materials, and teaches courses in AM processes, design and materials at the undergraduate and graduate level. Prior to joining ASU, Dhruv spent two years at PADT, Inc, a small business in Tempe, AZ, where he led the company's R&D efforts in Additive Manufacturing. Prior to joining PADT, he spent seven years at Intel Corporation developing several laser-based manufacturing processes, taking them from early-stage research to High-Volume-Manufacturing. He also spent a year in the automotive industry, working for India's largest car manufacturer, Tata Motors.
Dhruv has a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue University where he developed constitutive and failure models for the prediction of fatigue fracture in ductile metal alloys. Prior to this, he obtained his M.S. from the University of Colorado at Boulder where he studied the phenomenon of adhesion in MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) structures.
Dhruv's passion lies in combining theory, experimental methods and simulation to answer challenging research questions in new and effective ways, seeking inspiration from multiple disciplines.
