As a Dental Technology graduate, I mastered conventional methods of manufacturing dental devices. When I realised how far CAD/CAM technology has been implemented in my profession, I decided to learn how to use digital tools in order to further-proof my career.
I feel fortunate to be in the very first cohort of the MSc Industrial Digitalisation course. I believe it is helping me to further explore my creative potential and passion for sciences, as well as become more conversant with the advancements in additive manufacturing.
So far, I am enjoying a new feeling of instant creativity while practising Fusion 360 software and using the range of state of the art facilities at PrintCity. Before commencing the course, I had never had the opportunity to use such up-to-date technology and I am building my confidence step-by-step.
So far, I have found the course extremely informative and inspiring, although some aspects are challenging. I have been helped to cope with the more daunting parts by the exceptionally supportive and encouraging staff from PrintCity. In addition, it is a pleasure to exchange ideas with other students from many different backgrounds, who therefore approach tasks from different perspectives.
There have been a variety of guest speakers from different manufacturing backgrounds, who have shared invaluable insights into how they have implemented Industry 4.0 technologies into their organisations.
I have also had the opportunity to visit complex technical organisations, such as the Autodesk Technology Centre in Birmingham and Byrnes Dental Laboratory in Oxfordshire. At both, I was very impressed by the disruptive power and futuristic approach to manufacturing things quickly and economically with a minimal impact on the environment. My short-term ambition is to become a proficient user of specialised dental software and obtain employment in a state-of-the-art laboratory. I believe that the course will enable me to make a solid contribution to the more extensive implementation of additive manufacturing into the dental restoration field.
