The University of North Texas will partner with two institutions in Mexico to start a study abroad course in additive manufacturing. 

The course is being developed after the school received a $24,996 grant from the U.S. Department of State and Partners of America. The grant was awarded because the UNT College of Engineering was one of the winners at the 100,000 Strong in the Americas Innovation fund grant competition. 

Students at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and the Center for Engineering and Industrial Development can join the program starting this fall. A group of six students from Mexico and six from UNT will work together for a month to complete hands-on research projects at the Additive Manufacturing Lab.
