Stratasys|3D Printing and Resources for Tech Schools

Strengthening the Manufacturing Workforce

A strong manufacturing sector has always been an engine for individual prosperity and local economic growth. That’s why technical schools must prepare the workforce of tomorrow with in-demand skills. Training programs in 3D printing directly affect auto workers, machinists, automation technicians and other skilled technicians.

Inspiration’s a Click Away

Stratasys project idea videos help your students understand what’s possible, and from there it’s just a matter of understanding what type of 3D printer works best for the design application they have in mind.

What’s Possible With Partnering

Giving students real-world projects and problems to solve is one of the most effective ways to prepare students for the working world they’re looking to join. Learn how you can build up your students’ in-demand career skills by creating partnerships with local businesses.

Free and 3D: A Semester Curriculum

Free to educators and students, get a semester’s worth of in-depth lectures and class discussions that immerse students in the what, why and how of 3D printing with hands-on training. By the end of the course, they’ll be able to produce a fully functioning moving part in a single print.

Project-Based Learning Modules

Download a free module developed by experienced instructors with projects that range from beginner-level design to expert-level prototypes. Build skills that apply to real-world problem solving that can even be used for eventual job-hunting as an example of what students can do.

Extending Educational Value to All

Experience shows that 3D printing technology made available to everyone on campus has broad appeal. And when alumni get involved, partnerships and investment from outside businesses often happen. Read about Stratasys Lab Packages and how your school can really benefit.
