Development of an additive manufacturing approach for polymer-metal heterogeneous materials

, ,

Assistant Professor Keng Hsu from the Polytechnic (CTI) campus is seeking researchers for a FURI project that is involved in micro-manufacturing, 3D printing and soft actuators/robots. The Fulton research theme is Energy.

Project Description

This FURI project is part of a research program that seeks to develop a transformational additive manufacturing approach capable of producing metal-polymer heterogeneous materials voxel-by-voxel. Specifically the FURI project will entail defining the required process conditions that will allow the metal constituent material to be manipulated and deposited. This project will involve 80% of experimental work and 20% of theoretical analysis.

Student Qualifications

Students who major in Mechanical engineering, Engineering, or Material science, and have strong inclination to hands-on lab work, basic knowledge in mechanics and materials are encouraged to apply.

Number of hours per week: 10-12 hours/week

Stipend: per FURI guidelines

How to apply

Individuals who are interested in this position should start by emailing Dr. Keng Hsu ( to set up a time for a detailed discussion of the project background, scope, and expectations. The rest of the process follows the FURI application process.
