Research Thrust Areas / Additive Manufacturing


Additive Manufacturing (AM) or more popularly known as 3D Printing, is a rapidly evolving manufacturing approach with advantages over traditional fabrication increased design complexity, enhanced part customization and lower setup times. In particular, there is a significant interest in AM for biomedical, defense, and aerospace applications requiring high-temperature strength, higher strength-to-weight ratio, and corrosion resistance along with unparalleled design freedom. The eco-system of IIT Hyderabad (IITH) in terms of faculty expertise, courses, research projects, international conferences, short-term courses being offered etc. make it an ideal host for such a centre of excellence. The proximity of IITH to various defense R&D units is an added advantage. Total project funding generated exceeds INR 6.5 Crores
