Go ahead, print my day!

General description

From robotics to manufacturing and materials engineering, 3D printing has redefined the way in which we approach problems in research or industry.

Given its background as one of the leading agents of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, its current hype and how it enables conceptualization and autonomous fabrication, it is becoming not only a ever-growing hobby, but also more and more of an exciting and actual topic for any student in the fields of engineering and technology.

Whether you see 3D printing as a future career path or just as a hobby, the heart of Europe awaits you! Come to Zurich and discover with us the future of additive manufacturing while enjoying tasty chocolate and getting amazed by our thousands of lakes and the beauty of the Swiss Alps.
