Speaker Aleksandr Kulagin about Integration of Additive Technologies in Education
How do educational projects develop the field of 3D printing? What modern manufacturing technologies do students of NNSTU use in practice? The representative of NNSTU n.a. R.E. Alekseev Aleksandr Kulagin will highlight these issues for guests of 3D Print Expo.
The speaker will make a report titled “Integration of additive technologies in education via project activities”, in which he will share information about student projects at NNSTU, where knowledge of 3D printing technologies finds active use. His speech will touch such projects as Formula Student, Solar Regatta, Shell Eco-Marathon, Power Track, and Shell Eco-Marathon.
Key points of the report:
- how 3D printing technologies were integrated into the development of international practice-oriented engineering and technical projects at NNSTU;
- use of 3D printing in projects that back up the Foundation for Support of Small Enterprises in the Sci-Tech Field (preparation of engineering facilities required for the production of components of vacuum infusion equipment intended for the development of goods from composite materials; preparation of prototypes of kinematic finger prostheses);
- design and preparation of models of transport vehicles, and conduct of trials aimed at the development of research activities of students;
- educational programs on 3D printing and modeling for senior school pupils and students.
Besides, Aleksandr Kulagin will tell about the specifically developed by the Nizhny Novgorod State Technical University educational program “Modern 3D technologies”.
Aleksandr Kulagin is a Director of Eurotech educational and technological platform at the Institute of Transport Systems, Nizhny Novgorod State Technical University n.a. R.E. Alekseev (NNSTU). The platform conducts educational activities in the field of additive technologies, develops and realizes international practice-oriented engineering and technical projects Formula Student, Solar Regatta, Shell Eco-Marathon. The projects aim to develop and create prototypes of transport vehicles as well as to model and prototype standalone elements of the construction using 3D printing.
The speaker’s presentation will take place as part of the 3D Print Expo 2019 on October 4.
