The Additive Manufacturing and Structures Group (AMS) performs research in areas related to the production process that prints three-dimensional objects by controlling the deposit of materials, usually in layers.  This group develops new materials for printing, characterizes printed products through experiments and computational analysis and identifies technologies that contribute to applications in several engineering disciplines.  The cluster will be composed of a collaborative group of faculty and students within the MAE department and affiliates in CAE, BME, the new CEM department, the School of Architecture and the chemistry department in the College of Arts and Science. The AMS group has access to several college-wide state-of-the art facilities along with the J&J Colab equipment.  The group has been meeting in an ad-hoc manner over the last year to determine potential center type activities.
