Ehsan Toyserkani publishes new book

MME professor, Ehsan Toyserkani, worked in collaboration with fellow co-authors to publish a new book titled Metal Additive Manufacturing.

This textbook is one of the firsts to link the basics of fundamental undergraduate Engineering courses with metal additive manufacturing processes. It serves as an introduction to principal physical concepts, metal additive manufacturing processes, and their applications. This book can be used as foundational material for a core MME undergraduate course, as well as graduate courses.

Student team featuring members from Waterloo Mechatronics and Mechanical Engineering took home $5,000 each from the recent Concept $5k pitch competition for Fall 2021. Concept is an experiential entrepreneurship and pre-incubator program at the University of Waterloo. It is provided by Velocity, an incubator for early stage, pre-send startup companies.
