Fontys is an institute with a proactive approach to education. Its polymer studies wing needed a simple, small-scale setup to provide students with hands-on training in material extrusion and recycling, without running up unnecessary costs, or wasting time and resources in the process.
One of the largest educational institutes in the Netherlands, Fontys University of Applied Sciences offers bachelors’ and masters’ programs in fields ranging from engineering and technology, to social sciences and healthcare. Future-oriented courses in polymer studies are offered at the university’s Natural Science wing, located in Eindhoven. Here, students use 3D printing to enhance polymers and develop sustainable solutions for the rapidly evolving additive manufacturing industry.
