NASA has awarded a $5.2mn contract to Auburn University’s Samuel Ginn College of Engineering for Auburn’s National Centre for Additive Manufacturing Excellence, according to The Plainsman. As part of the three-year contract, the expansion will allow the long-standing partnership between Auburn and NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Centre to continue to develop.
Mike Ogles, director of NASA programmes in the College of Engineering, set to serve as project manager, commented: This contract is a giant leap toward making Alabama the go-to state for additive manufacturing. We look forward to growing our partnership with NASA, industry, and academia as we support the development of our nation's next rocket engines.
