Additive manufacturing (AM) institute America Makes has appointed Dr Diana Natalicio, former president of The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) as an America Makes 3D printing ambassador.

UTEP has been a member of America Makes since 2012 and is also the site of the Institute’s first Satellite Center, established in 2015.

‘During her remarkable 31-year tenure as president, Dr. Natalicio has led UTEP to become a center of academic and research excellence, recently attaining Carnegie R1 status as a top tier doctoral university,’ said America Makes executive director John Wilczynski. ‘Our partnership with UTEP and its Keck Center as our first Satellite Center, has been successful, yielding positive outcomes for both our members and industry.’
