Denis Cormier

  • Earl W. Brinkman Professor
  • Industrial and Systems Engineering

Professor Cormier is the Earl W. Brinkman Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering at the Rochester Institute of Technology. He is also director of the Multifunctional 3D Printing (MPrint) Center. His teaching and research interests focus on additive manufacturing, 3D printing, and printed electronics for the synthesis of novel materials and geometric structures. Professor Cormier received his B.S. in Systems Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, his M.S. in Industrial Engineering from the State University of New York at Buffalo, and his Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering from North Carolina State University. Prior to joining RIT, he was a faculty member at North Carolina State University from 1994-2009. He serves as Associate Editor for the International Journal of Rapid Manufacturing, and he serves on the Editorial Advisory Board for two journals - Additive Manufacturing, and the Rapid Prototyping Journal. He is a founding member of ASTM’s F-42 additive manufacturing standards group, and he also serves as Chairman of the Society of Manufacturing Engineer’s Rapid Technologies and Additive Manufacturing steering committee. He received SME’s Outstanding Young Manufacturing Engineering award in 2003.
