College students demonstrated their “stick-to-it-iveness” at a recent competition in St. Paul, MN.
Four universities—Iowa State University, University of Minnesota, University of Wisconsin-Madison and North Dakota State University (NDSU)—competed in the inaugural 3M Industrial Adhesives and Tapes Disruptive Design Challenge (DDC) at 3M’s headquarters (St. Paul, MN), Friday, April 13. The engineering students from North Dakota State University won the competition, becoming the first-ever 3M Industrial Adhesives and Tapes DDC winner.
DDC is a hands-on, interactive competition that 3M’s Industrial Adhesives and Tapes division created to expose and educate the next generation of engineers to the various uses and design benefits of chemical bonding and adhesive solutions. Often, alternative systems are excluded from engineering school curriculums, yet these bonding solutions help solve many design challenges, including strength, fit, flex, impact, aesthetics, noise, weight, speed, sealing and assembly. DDC helps close the knowledge gap by giving future engineers at the collegiate level the experience of applying these technologies to show how they promote the freedom to design.
