@apresher: It looks like Missouri S&T was 10-1 last year, and came in second in their conference. I agree that most of their players are probably not headed for the NFL, but it is a very highly-rated Division II team.
I agree wholeheartedly that this is the kind of recruitment effort we should see more of.
Chuck, MS&T was one of the schools my older son got into. He ended up going to another engineering school, but MS&T was a close second. We visited a couple of times and it is a great school and environment for engineering students. One of the things I hear a lot is how we don't have enough engineers in the US. I don't believe that, but with the talk about the issues in education in this country, the success of our engineering schools sometimes gets crowded out. It is good to see a school like MS&T getting the message out.
Chuck, It may be that only a Science and Technology could get away with this kind of promotion to prospective students. Most of their players are probably not thinking about the NFL. Thanks for the interesting angle on engineering recruitment.

Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
