The R.K. Mellon Foundation has awarded a $350,000 grant to the School of Engineering, Mathematics, and Science to build a 3-D printing/additive manufacturing lab and classroom at the Energy Innovation Center next to downtown Pittsburgh. Construction will begin next fall, and the school will teach its three certificate programs at the facility. Also, last week SEMS invited high school girls to campus to meet one-on- one with female professionals and undergraduate students and learn about STEM careers. Professionals were RMU alumni working at Curtiss-Wright, GAI Consultants, Michael Baker International, Summa, Philips Respironics, and Comtec Manufacturing.
