Welcome to our BEST Course in Summer 2022!

9th to 17th of August 2022

About the course

Additive and subtractive manufacturing are more than just cool technologies for rapid prototyping, modelling and specialist one-off products. They are more and more becoming fundamental building blocks of the ‘4th industrial revolution’, and as printing methods and materials advance, the benefits of additive and subtractive manufacturing for biomedical engineering become clearer. This is your opportunity to learn about the field of microfluidics and 3D-printing that is still young and has enormous transformative potential.

In this course, you will gain both theoretical and basic practical experience of:  

Come and learn how you can pioneer this field with the help of our academic and industrial experts!

As a bonus to what you will learn during the course, you will also get to experience the Swedish culture – everything from eating fermented fish ("surströmming") to spending time in the middle of the ancient Swedish forest and taking a swim in a lake. 

So if you are enthusiastic about microfabrication and also want to get to know Swedish culture, APPLY!
