Every student deserves hands-on experience with the same tools and technologies they’ll encounter in their careers. As an educator, you recognize the need to adapt curriculum accordingly, but you might still be wondering where to begin. Recognizing the profound implications of 3D printing for the future of design and manufacturing, Stratasys Education has designed a 3D printing course to prepare students for current and emerging careers in those fields.


Student demographics are shifting. Competition is closing. Technology is booming. Identifying new strategies that address these changes is critical to staying competitive, increasing revenues, and delivering measurable outcomes. Attend this web seminar to hear from an elite panel of experts as they discuss the unique learning needs and interests of today's tech savvy students, and reveal best practices for leveraging data to personalize your students' educational experience.


At Niagara College in Ontario, Canada, a new state-of-the-art Advanced Manufacturing Innovation Centre is providing unique opportunities for students, faculty and local businesses to collaborate in innovative ways. 3D printing plays an important role in a variety of projects at the Centre, providing students with valuable real-world experience, faculty with professional development and research opportunities, and local advanced manufacturing businesses with solutions to a variety of challenges.

While some students in rural communities may have difficulty obtaining access to educational options close to home, students in northern Michigan will have a new opportunity to study CNC programming. This fall North Central Michigan College will implement the “CNC” Digital Fab Lab, a sophisticated mobile educational outreach trailer that gives students hands-on training to attain highly specialized manufacturing jobs.

Five years ago, there were no universities offering an undergraduate major in robotics. Today, “robotics is a high-growth area,” says Mike Gennert, the director of the Robotics Engineering Program at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), a 5,700-student university in Massachusetts.

“Nationally, we are seeing a growing number of undergraduate majors, and the number of grad programs has doubled or tripled in the last few years,” he says.

The field of robotics is expanding as the technology becomes more commercially viable.

For years, educators have recognized that children playing with LEGOs exhibit a natural talent in problem-solving and creativity. Because engineering students often have extensive experience with LEGOs, big-name universities, including Carnegie Mellon, Arizona State, University of Nevada-Reno, and Texas A&M are eager to work LEGO into their undergraduate curriculum to engage and retain students.
