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.

Architecture Alumnus Named AIA Fellow

School of Architecture alumnus Chuck Travis was inducted into the College of Fellows by the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

Election to the College of Fellows is the highest honor bestowed by AIA upon an architect in the United States. Travis joins only three other members in the North Carolina AIA as well as 147 AIA members nationwide to be awarded this prestigious designation this year.

Travis graduated from UNC Charlotte in 1982 with a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture; he subsequently received a Bachelor of Architecture from N.C. State University. A principal at Housing Studio in Charlotte, Travis also is mayor of Cornelius. In 2010, he received the AIA Charlotte Service Award for his "extraordinary service to the community and profession."
