  • Job Explosion for 3D Printing
    investment But when it comes to students graduating from the ISE Department it is a far different scenario Graduates are finding that instead of the applicants outnumbering the job openings it is the other way around This is especially true for students with 3D printing and Additive Manufacturing AM experience Jobs are appearing faster than candidates can fill them In the United States and around the world The nature of manufacturing has begun to shift Mass customization is beginning to overtake mass production According to the website Wanted Analytics the number of job ads requiring workers with 3D printing and AM skills increased a staggering 1 384 since July 2010 From August 2013 to August 2014 alone that number grew 103 Most in demand industrial engineers The new manufacturing renaissance has ended the talk of manufacturing being dead in the U S This has caused students to flock in increasing numbers to the engineering discipline Enrollment in the ISE program has more than doubled ISE s Center for Additive Manufacturing and Logistics is one of the most advanced facilities of its kind It houses more than 20 3D printers that can work with plastics metals and ceramics But its crown

  • Germ Killer App
    own bodies to combat any infection This may sound like science fiction but ISE researchers are working to make it a reality The high cost of treating infections and the resistance to antibiotics have pushed researchers to find a better way to fight surgical infections So for the last four years I have been working with Professor Rohan Shirwaiker on a system to do just that We have been experimenting by applying a low intensity electrical charge to a thin film made of silver This charge causes the release of silver ions from the surface of the film These ions have an amazing germ killing property and low toxicity which makes them ideal for fighting infections within the body We place the thin silver film at one end of the titanium implanted device Then we add a power source in this case a watch battery inside the implant The body s own fluids will complete the circuit between film and battery As an added benefit the low intensity electrical stimulation can enhance bone formation This will help the bone attach faster to the implant I am excited to report that our tests show a 99 9 decrease in bacteria after
