The progress of additive manufacturing processes is ever increasing with the development of the digital platform in the manufacturing sector, which is essential for the growth of modern technologies. This course is primarily designed for fundamental understanding of different additive manufacturing technologies for realizing the metallic and non-metallic objects. The syllabus is oriented to cover from basic understanding to practical applications of this technology to develop the products. Therefore, the academic people, as well as the industrial practitioner both, will be benefitted from this course. The special emphasis is given to link computer interface with the digital manufacturing process and their demonstration using commercially available software. The modules cover almost all the direction of additive manufacturing technologies, and it is blended with fundamental development to the recent technologies. The audience will be able to develop a fundamental understanding of different perspectives and recent development in this field through the lectures, skill development through demonstration, and reinforce their knowledge by solving assignments. This course is presented in a lucid and simplified way to make it enjoyable to the beginners.


Bachelor/Master/PhD students having background in Mechanical Engineering/Production Engineering/Manufacturing Technology


Dr. Sajan Kapil completed his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from G. B. Pant Engineering College Pauri, Master’s degree in Computer Assisted Manufacturing from IIT Guwahati & University of Stuttgart and Ph.D. from IIT Bombay. After that, he joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering IIT Guwahati as an Assistant Professor. His areas of research include 3D printing, Manufacturing Automation, and CAD/CAM. At IIT Bombay, he had developed an Additive Manufacturing process called “Hybrid Layered Manufacturing”. He had simplified the manufacturing process of complex geometries by generating both 3 and 5-axis metal deposition toolpaths. He has published his research work in 13 international journals, 7 Indian patents, and more than 20 conferences. He has developed a new elective course entitled as ’Additive Manufacturing Technologies’ at IIT Guwahati. He is involved in teaching the subjects like ‘Additive Manufacturing Technologies’, ‘Kinematics of Machinery’, ‘Engineering Drawing’, and ‘Manufacturing Laboratory’, at IIT Guwahati.

Certification Process

1. Join the course
Learners may pay the applicable fees and enrol to a course on offer in the portal and get access to all of its contents including assignments. Validity of enrolment, which includes access to the videos and other learning material and attempting the assignments, will be mentioned on the course. Learner has to complete the assignments and get the minimum required marks to be eligible for the certification exam within this period.

COURSE ENROLMENT FEE: The Fee for Enrolment is Rs. 3000 + GST

2. Watch Videos+Submit Assignments
After enrolling, learners can watch lectures and learn and follow it up with attempting/answering the assignments given.

3. Get qualified to register for exams
A learner can earn a certificate in the self paced course only by appearing for the online remote proctored exam and to register for this, the learner should get minimum required marks in the assignments as given below:

Assignment score = Score more than 50% in at least 9/12 assignments.
Exam score = 50% of the proctored certification exam score out of 100
Only the e-certificate will be made available. Hard copies will not be dispatched.”

4. Register for exams
The certification exam is conducted online with remote proctoring. Once a learner has become eligible to register for the certification exam, they can choose a slot convenient to them from what is available and pay the exam fee. Schedule of available slot dates/timings for these remote-proctored online examinations will be published and made available to the learners.

EXAM FEE: The remote proctoring exam is optional for a fee of Rs.1500 + GST. An additional fee of Rs.1500 will apply for a non-standard time slot.
