Pathway Overview

The Rapid Prototyping and Advanced Manufacturing Technology Pathway is a rigorous online pathway designed for ambitious and dedicated Learners with a strong foundation in design principles. Over six months, Learners will focus on fast fabrication of physical parts, models, and assemblies using 3D computer aided design (CAD) and advanced manufacturing technologies such as additive manufacturing and high-speed-precision machining.

Through a combination of design considerations, 3D printing, programming, and prototyping, Learners will tackle challenging design projects and work on demanding design challenges.

As a compressed pathway, Learners must be prepared to work independently for extended periods of time and dedicate significant time to homework assignments and assessments to fill any knowledge gaps in programming, CAD drawing, and prototyping. By the end of the pathway, Learners will have developed advanced skills in rapid prototyping and manufacturing, and be well-equipped to apply these skills in a variety of settings.

Rapid prototyping (RP) quickly creates a physical part by using various manufacturing techniques. It doesn’t limit to specific processes, one can use more than one manufacturing technique to assemble a prototype. So, this course explains four main families of standard manufacturing processes: injection molding/Casting, machining, forming, and joining. Also, we offer an optional practical face-to-face training session for Jordanian learners under supervision of professional trainers.

Advanced manufacturing course focused on the fast fabrication of a physical part, model or assembly using 3D computer aided design (CAD). The creation of the part, model or assembly is completed using additive manufacturing printers. This course is divided for five weeks, each week have different type of additive manufacturing printers, we specialize in three processes, bringing you everything you need for custom 3D printing projects, from rapid prototyping with FDM, SLA and SLS printer. Also, for each printer we have different software to aid the design considerations and printing process, from 3d modeling to print simulations and slicer programs. In this course, we will prepare learners for the engineering industry, particularly for prototyping and creating lightweight geometry.
Check Course

This course covers four advanced subtractive technologies: Lathe CNC, Milling CNC, and Laser cutting CNC machines. The course aims to provide learners with a comprehensive understanding of Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) and CNC machines.This course is ideal for anyone interested in pursuing a career in manufacturing, engineering, or product design. No prior experience with CNC machines is required, although learners should have a basic understanding of engineering principles and terminology.
Check Course

This course focuses on teaching learners how to create products and prototypes for hobbies and businesses. The course covers programming and control systems to enable learners to create and build rapid prototypes. The course begins with an introduction to the Arduino platform, including the board, libraries, and Integrated Development Environment (IDE). learners will learn the basics of using the Arduino platform to create simple control systems.
