Purdue University Calumet's Center for Innovation through Visualization and Simulation undergraduate students Hannah Amor, Stephen Builta, and Michael Garcia won first place last week for a student project presentation at the Association for Iron and Steel Technology's AISTech 2014 conference in Indianapolis. "These are essential first steps toward building the research infrastructure necessary to sustain a healthy, innovative advanced manufacturing sector - one that invents, demonstrates, prototypes and produces here, in the U.S." The new steel consortium will work toward long-range industry-wide technical solutions that steelmakers and suppliers can use to increase efficiency, reduce production costs and improve quality, Zhou said.
