SYRACUSE, NY - The Radiation Curing Program (RCP) has added a new short course to its suite of online courses. The course, “Basics of UV Curable 3D Printing,” provides an overview of the chemistry and technology behind the UV curing component of the three-dimensional (3D) printing process.

Course instructor and industry expert Michael Idacavage commented, “In this course, students will learn language and concepts of UV curing technology and how it applies to 3D printing. The various modules will provide a broad overview of the science, materials, equipment and processes used in UV-curable 3D printing.”

“Short courses can be completed in 4-6 hours, but can be taken at your own pace over a four-week period. This makes it extremely easy to gain knowledge while accommodating a busy work schedule,” added Doreen M. Monteleone, Ph.D., RCP program manager.

In addition to this course, registration is now open for four other online courses, including an additional short course on the principles of energy curing and an advanced graduate-level radiation curing certificate program.
