in AME



Nano Dimension’s pioneering Additively Manufactured Electronics (AME) allows researchers to rapid prototype functioning circuit boards in a matter of hours.




Precision Micro Additive Manufacturing (Micro AM) delivers parts 80% faster than traditional production methods.

Real-Time Deep Learning



Self-learning DeepCube neural network-based artificial intelligence (AI) is robust enough to be applied in real time to production machines and is the key driver of Industry 4.0 integrated systems.

NDEAR Initiatives

Looking for a way to jumpstart your career?

NDEAR partners with colleges and universities to offer internship, co-op, or Capstone opportunities to students at our Waltham Innovation Lab. Programs for students typically will last from one to six months and can be arranged throughout the year. Students will be supervised by Nano engineers, be working directly with Nano’s equipment. The hands-on experience allows students a chance to learn about our company’s AM and AME technology.


As an education partner of Nano, NDEAR sponsors events relating to STEM and others that fit our mission to promote additive manufacturing and other workforce development initiatives.

For more information, please contact  

  • Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students, and PhD Candidates in the fields of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Materials Science.

Through our bureau of subject matter experts, NDEAR offers technical experts to speak at conferences and events if needed.​ 

NDEAR offers training curriculum in Surfaced Mount Technology (SMT) and Additively Manufactured Electronics (AME) technologies to our education partners. The curriculum trains and certifies students how to operate and maintain equipment. The curriculum can be either added to an existing Engineering/Engineering Technology program or serve as a standalone certificate for workforce development program​.  

As the educational component of Nano Dimension, NDEAR also trains and certifies faculty through our “Train-the-Trainers” program free of charge.

FIU Training Session

Michael Keyack and Dakota Thomas, students of Florida International University, have joined Nano Dimension for a four week training session. Michael is an undergraduate in Electrical Engineering and Dakota is a PhD student in Mechanical Engineering. During their time in Boston, they are learning about AME, our additive manufacturing machines, Surface Mount Technology, and Job Skills, while also exploring inner Boston and touring some great university labs. Their advisors are flying up from Florida on their last day here, where the students will present a final project completed on the Dragonfly IV to their advisors and a panel of Nano Dimension employees.

A group of students from Tufts University presented a project featuring Nano Dimension’s Dragonfly technology at this year’s annual Robotics Summit at the Boston Convention Center. The project featured an Ingestible Pill that won the grand prize of $25k. The team consisted of Professor Sameer Sonkusale (principal investigator), Ege Cogulu (Mechanical Engineering undergraduate), Ruben Del-Rio-Ruiz (Electrical and Computer Engineering postdoctoral scholar), and Cihan Asci (Electrical and Computer Engineering PhD student).

The goal was to generate a swallowable pill that incorporates electronics technology capable of collecting data from inside the digestive track. This would serve as a more efficient and less intrusive solution for capturing gut microbiome samples (vs. current, more invasive procedures such as endoscopy or colonoscopy

We welcomed Lorenzo Arvisu to Nano Dimension as our first internship candidate. Lorenzo is a PhD student in Electrical Engineering and has joined Nano Dimension to obtain knowledge on operating and maintaining the technology, while also developing curriculum.

9/15/2023 – Nano hosted Florida International University (FIU) at its U.S. headquarters for a tour and technology discussion. The FIU team consisted of Dr. Cheng-Yu Lai and Dr. Daniela Radu.
