Students at Cuyahoga Community College Use 3D Printers to Aid Disabled Vets

Posted by on .

Students at Tri-C ’s additive manufacturing program worked directly with disabled veterans to create assistive devices during the summer of 2017. The students, who were working on a Capstone Project by partnering with the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, talked to a group of disabled veterans about what they would like to use these devices for. 

One veteran said he wanted to garden again. Others said they would like devices to aid in using eating utensils, shaving, and turning pages of physical books and e-books. 

The students used a 3D printer to make these assistive devices, which makes them easy to customize and for far less money than with traditional manufacturing methods. 

The instructor of the course, Maciej G. Zborowski, said he wanted his students to be able to apply methods learned in class to actual issues. “It is one thing to assign a project that is just a figment of my imagination, but I figured that it would be more impactful to test the students using problems that actually existed out in the real world,” he said.

Additive manufacturing is a growing field, especially in the medical industry. Tri-C offers a one-year certificate in their 3D...

The Midwest is Experiencing a Boon in Mid-Tech Jobs

Posted by on .

Associated image

The coastal regions of the United States, specifically the West coast, are well-known for their technology sectors. The Midwest is not exactly turning into Silicon Valley, but it certainly is seeing a rise of what has been dubbed, “mid-tech,” jobs.

Traditionally, jobs in the Midwest have been blue-collar and trade-based. This has been shifting steadily over the years to technology jobs that don’t necessarily require an advanced degree. While not an official designation, mid-tech jobs can be defined as skilled tech work that doesn’t require a college degree: just intense, focused training on the job or in vocational programs like those of blue-collar trades of the industrial past.
