3D metal printing is a technology in rapid growth. At DTU Mechanical Engineering, we have invested in new metal printers and are therefore offering student projects in this field.

Though metal printing by many is considered a state-of-the-art technology, it is still a new addition to the many manufacturing processes we can choose between in our production systems.

There are many unanswered questions related to 3D metal printing, many of them are related to how processing parameters influence the microstructure and metallurgical quality of the printed parts. The term ”Metallurgical Quality” is, of course, related to the microstructure that forms when we print components, but it also covers topics like residual stress and cracking due to stresses as well as formation of porosity, inclusions and oxides that can form during processing.

We have today 3D printers available that allow us to wary process parameters and printing material freely, so that we can study effects of varying process parameters on the structure and properties of the printed components.

This is a very wide area of research and there are many possibilities to create specific projects of varying length and complexity for students that look for projects that combine processing and materials science, and who are interested to work in a field with a high degree of novelty.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
