Earn a Rapid Prototyping and Design Certificate

Rapid prototyping manufacturing (RPM) is an emerging field that uses existing and cutting-edge technologies to construct physical 3D objects. Used mainly in high-end product design, rapid prototyping can shorten product development cycle times and lead to more efficient and effective processes.

RPM is often associated with additive manufacturing, CNC machining and injection molding. Our certificate program meets the critical training needs of RPM and solid modeling. Students design models with SolidWorks and then create the models with 3D printers and scanners, CNC machines and casting equipment.

Continuing your education

These courses are part of and apply towards the Digital Design and Modeling subplan of the 60-credit hour Engineering Technology A.S. degree.

With this certificate, you can obtain employment where Rapid Prototyping is used. Some careers include:
