Advanced Manufacturing

RIT engineers are improving manufacturing processes and systems through cutting-edge innovations in science and technology.

Research Centers

AMPrint Center

While additive manufacturing (AM) and 3D Printing (3DP) technologies have justifiably generated a great deal of excitement, they are only scratching the surface of what's possible. This is because AM and 3DP technologies have typically been used to fabricate purely mechanical parts. But what about parts that require electrical functionality? Or thermal, optical, magnetic, biological, or chemical functionality? RIT's Additive Manufacturing and Multifunctional Printing (AMPrint) Center is among the first research centers in the world to specifically focus on Multifunctional 3D Printing.

Gear Research Consortium

Represents a consortium of five RIT faculty from both the Kate Gleason College of Engineering and the College of Science working on applications of nanomaterials in energy and photonics. Research is focused on the development of new materials and devices for power generation and storage as well as novel materials for photonic and optoelectronic applications.
