Another Composite Material Reseach Center Gains Funding

Here is an announcement that Southern University in Louisiana has received a $5 million dollar grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to create the “Next Generation Composites Crest Center,” or NextGenC3 for short. The Advocate reports:
"The center will focus on the development of cutting edge research on composite materials and educational activities that will provide traditionally underrepresented minority students in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines with research experiences at a readily accessible advanced research facility."
I think this is fantastic, more exposure young engineers and designers can receive with composite materials will ultimately fuel the long-term prosperity and growth of the composite industry as a whole...
