Technology advancement is changing the disability landscape, as demonstrated by the 10 student teams at Aggies Invent for Assistive Technology this past weekend. The 58 participating students were challenged to improve the lives of the more than 57 million Americans who have some form of disability by developing a technological solution to one of the 16 need statements of the competition. This Aggies Invent had students from 18 different majors and ranged from freshmen to graduate students across campus.
Texas A&M Engineering is poised to become a national leader in advanced manufacturing. Helping cement that growing reputation, the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) has joined America Makes, the country’s leading collaborative partner in additive manufacturing and 3-D printing technology research, commercialization and education.
The Texas A&M University System and the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station are part of a new public-private Manufacturing USA initiative, the Advanced Regenerative Manufacturing Institute (ARMI). Headquartered in Manchester, New Hampshire, ARMI is the 12th Manufacturing USA institute. It brings together a consortium of nearly 100 partner organizations from industry, government, academia and the non-profit sector to develop next-generation manufacturing processes and technologies for cells, tissues and organs.
Using the technology behind origami and kirigami manufacturing, researchers from the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Department of Visualization at Texas A&M University want to give manufacturers the ability to design and customize their own products.
The Texas A&M Energy Institute, a joint partnership between Texas A&M University and the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES), will be leading the modeling and simulation efforts of the Rapid Advancement in Process Intensification Deployment (RAPID) Manufacturing Institute of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE).
