Ceramic additive manufacturing has the potential to radically change the market. The available manufacturing systems for ceramic have reached an advanced stage already and present a real alternative and a sensible addition to conventional manufacturing methods. This tendency of development has awakened great interest in industry and research, but also great uncertainty. It is therefore necessary to offer a deep insight into the subject to uncover the potential of the technology. The course provides its audience a varied program which contains a mixture of economic, application-specific and technology-based topics. The course includes the following topics:
