The University of Connecticut is a national leader in the fields of advanced materials and additive manufacturing. By partnering with UConn, original equipment manufacturers and their suppliers can pursue faster prototyping and the integration of more advanced materials – both plastics and metals – in their products. Today, UConn is one of the leading institutions for additive manufacturing research and prototyping, and is home to the Pratt & Whitney Additive Manufacturing Innovation Center (AMIC).
