Dr. Karl Haapala receives SMART Coordination Network Award

Dr. Karl Haapala has received an award to develop an educational module on sustainable additive manufacturing along with his students, Amin Mirkouei and Hari Nagarajan. The module will contribute to a set of sustainable manufacturing case studies (SMCSs) within the NSF Sustainable Manufacturing Advances in Research and Technology (SMART) Coordination Network. A primary objective of the network is to bridge the gap between the academic knowledge discovery and industrial technology innovation for sustainable manufacturing. Educational modules are available for download from http://cache.org/teaching-resources-center
