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.
At this year's MD&M West show, lots of material suppliers are talking about new formulations for wearables and things that stick to the skin, whether it's adhesives, wound dressings, skin patches and other drug delivery devices, or medical electronics.
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.
