Carsten Engel, MSc, MBA, graduated at the University of Brussels (ULB) as a biomedical engineer and worked as a researcher at SIRRIS (the Collective Centre of the Belgian Technology Industry) for five years which has the biggest European 3D Printing machine park (22 different systems). His main work involved R&D projects in the field of biomedical and aerospace applications where he optimized systems and designs using metal alloys and polymers.
During his work at SIRRIS he also deployed the ISO13485 (Medical) standard for 4 different technologies raging from ceramics to polymers and metals. He is also listed as an expert reviewer for the European Commission in the field of Additive Manufacturing.
Mr Engel also gave a TED talk where the focus of the first one was on medical applications of 3D Printing. He did his MBA study in Brussels which involved a market research and a viability research of a start-up company in the field of metal 3D printing for aerospace applications.
