Today, 3D printers are used for creating prototypes and for industrial production in fields as varied as architecture, construction, industrial design, automotive design, aeronautics, aviation, defence, engineering, dentistry, medicine, biotechnical engineering
, fashion, jewellery, accessory design, education and many others.
Dominic Audia, a science and engineering teacher at West High, said students have to take pre-engineering classes such as principles of engineering and biotechnical engineering
before being able to take the aerospace engineering class.
PLANS: Attend Lafayette College; major in biology, minor in biotechnical engineering
* High school "Pathway to Engineering" consists of Introduction to Engineering Design, Principles of Engineering, Digital Electronics, Aerospace Engineering, Biotechnical Engineering
, Computer-Integrated Manufacturing, Civil Engineering and Architecture, and Engineering Design and Development.
The four-year curriculum includes introduction to engineering design, principles of engineering, digital electronics, civil engineering and architecture, compute-integrated manufacturing, biotechnical engineering
, and engineering design and development.
Alternative approaches relying on the stabilizing properties of vegetation, alternatively known as soil bioengineering (Schiechtl, 1996), biotechnical engineering (Gray and Sotir, 1996) and phytostabilization (Berti and Cunningham, 2000), have been known for many years (Gray and Leiser, 1989; Schiechtl, 1980).
Biotechnical engineering as an alternative to traditional engineering methods: A biotechnical streambank stabilization design approach.
"When it comes to human biotechnical engineering
beyond therapy," they write, only if there is something inherently good or dignified about, say, natural procreation, the human life cycle (with its rhythm of rise and fall), and human erotic longing and striving; only if there is something inherently good or dignified about the ways we engage the world as spectators and appreciators, as teachers and learners, leaders and followers, agents and makers, lovers and friends, parents and children, citizens and worshippers, and as seekers of our own special excellence and flourishing in whatever arena to which we are called--only then can we begin to see why those aspects of our nature need to be defended against our deliberate redesign.
It also offers concentrations in nuclear, polymer and biotechnical engineering
In February, PLTW announced that it was developing a high school curriculum in biotechnical engineering
that would be available nationwide in the fall of 2006.
