Clemson University is establishing a 400-acre International Center for Automotive Research (www.clemson.edu/autoresearch). The campus will comprise a graduate engineering program and research and testing facilities, including automotive electronics and crash-worthiness labs, a full-scale wind tunnel, and a fuels lab, which will emphasize hydrogen research. Halfway between Charlotte and Atlanta, the center is in a corridor home to two thirds of the nation's motorsports race teams.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
