Summary 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. Companies such as ArcelorMittal and U.S. Steel will sit down and identify research projects that would benefit everyone in the U.S. steel industry, which contributes $17.5 billion a year to the economy and is directly and indirectly responsible for 1 million jobs.
