Navajo Technical University to Build Center for Advanced Manufacturing

December 26, 2018

Navajo Technical University (NTU) in Crownpoint, NM, announced its procurement of a $3.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to establish the NTU Center for Advanced Manufacturing. The new center will house courses on 3D modeling and simulation, polymer and metal additive manufacturing, post-processing techniques. It also will focus on materials testing and characterization, and metrology, the science of measurement. NTU was awarded a $1 million grant by the United States Department of Commerce with matching funds of $1.5 million from the Navajo Nation to build a metrology and materials testing center within the Center for Advanced Manufacturing. With an early spring groundbreaking planned, NTU hopes for the center to be functional by year-end.
