Sharjah University hosts workshop to promote 3D printing research. The American University of Sharjah Enterprises (AUSE) and American University of Sharjah (AUS) recently held a three-day workshop on robotics and 3D printing in the construction industry to present potential opportunities in research and development in construction. The workshop was held at the university where AUS senior students showcased some of their best 3D printing projects. Finland’s Oulu University of Applied Sciences (OAMK), which is Sharjah’s key partner in business development and setting up of a world-class innovation ecosystem for the emirate, presented an innovation management approach highlighting its ‘LAB model’. OAMK and AUSE earlier signed an agreement which paved the way for the introduction of the Finnish university’s LABs learning model in the UAE. The three-day workshop hosted participants from both the public and private construction sector.
