TAC's mission is part of the larger UC effort to move the university into new entrepreneurial arenas.

UCRI’s Advanced Manufacturing Center (AMC) supports researchers in both academic and industrial endeavors. Advanced manufacturing is the technology that allows for design, manufacturing and functional use of prototypes printed on a variety of materials such as polymers, metals, and bone. Some of the benefits include: rapid prototyping, material development, and optimized design, all with quality control at the forefront.

The AMC offers the opportunity to use their facility in industries such as engineering, biomedical research and alloy development. Industry partners can experiment with additive and subtractive manufacturing. Students can create unique parts for projects and entrepreneurial initiatives. Faculty can provide expertise, consulting and development to help all parties, as well as create their own designs.
