Young Professional Awards

The Young Professional Award recognizes emerging young professionals who have made significant research contributions to the field of additive manufacturing, specifically in support of standards development.

Awards of Excellence

The Awards of Excellence were established to recognize members who have made continuous and outstanding contributions to the field of additive manufacturing in the areas of Research, Education, Standardization, or Industrialization.

Student Competition Presentation Awards

Graduate and undergraduate students submitted abstracts and presented them in the Student Presentation Competition symposium for the 3 awards: 1st Place, 2nd Place, and 3rd Place. The student presentations were reviewed by a select panel of judges from the ICAM Scientific Organizing Committee.

Lifetime Achievement Award

Established in 2023, this award acknowledges individuals who have achieved exceptional career accomplishments and made substantial contributions to the field of advanced manufacturing.
