Partnership on Advanced Manufacturing Consortium

The Coordinate Metrology Society and UNC Charlotte have won an Advanced Manufacturing Technology Consortia (AMTech) grant from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), an agency of the U.S. Commerce Department.

The grant is dedicated to accelerating the growth of advanced manufacturing in the United States. These industry-driven coalitions will focus on developing and executing strategic plans to solve common technology challenges.

The CMS-UNC Charlotte team will form a consortium for large-scale, precision manufacturing innovation (CLPMI). The group will identify and prioritize the technology needs of the aerospace, defense, energy and other industries that manufacture large-scale, high accuracy parts and products.

Campus Noted for Managing Healthy Trees

With UNC Charlotte’s campus footprint continuing to grow, the University is taking the steps to ensure one of the its most valued natural resources is being sustained - trees.

Beyond a source of shade, trees help clean the air and add an aesthetically pleasing element to campus. UNC Charlotte’s commitment to effectively manage its tree population has led to it being named a Tree Campus USA by the Arbor Day Foundation.

"UNC Charlotte being named a Tree Campus USA underscores our commitment to create a visually appealing environment that integrates our campus architecture with the natural landscape that already exists," said Peter Franz, campus landscape architect. "The University has remained committed to being environmentally responsible during a time of continual growth and will remain diligent as the University changes."
