Engineering Technology Student Wins Second In Student Manufacturing Design Contest April 17, 2014 Engineering Technology student and member of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), Joshua Konstantinos, won second place with his senior design project, titled “The Dragon Conductive 3-D Printer” during the 2014 Student Manufacturing Design Competition at the MSEC/NAMC Conference on June 9-14, 2014, in Detroit and Ann Arbor, Michigan. Konstantinos presented the project on Wednesday, June 11, and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners were announced that night during the conference banquet. According to the official website, the purpose of the Student Manufacturing Design Competition is to foster interest in manufacturing, provide the manufacturing engineering community with fresh new perspectives on design, and create a forum for students to share their new and innovative ideas. Original student designs that focus on manufacturing engineering and science are sought and any design of a system, component, or process that can be used to promote the art, science and practice of manufacturing engineering is accepted. Any graduate or undergraduate student who is registered in school full time through Spring of 2014 or beyond and is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) or SME is eligible to participate.
