Ertugrul Varlik has started his academic life by obtaining his Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree from the University of Karabuk, Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, in 2017. After his graduation as a student of honor, he had continued his education as a Master of Science (M.Sc.) student in the same department at the University of Marmara. Due to his high interest in Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies, he completed his master’s thesis at the University of Brescia in Italy with the project titled ” Indirect Metal Complex Part Production Using Binder Jetting Technology: A Preliminary Research”. Ertugrul has been awarded with many private merit scholarships on account of his strong effort during the education years. Currently, he has been continuing his career as a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) student at the Centre for Functional and Surface Functionalized Glass (FunGlass) in Trencin, Slovakia.
