What is a SIG?

CEWiT Special Interest Groups (SIGs) nurture the growing diversity in our organization by providing "micro" communities where members can network and build technology awareness and skills in focused areas of common interest. They provide a place of engagement that provides professional development and social fun. Active SIGs identify and address member interests, issues and concerns. Ideally, SIGs will allow students to create programs and activities to further their common interests and can include such things as info sessions, career information speakers, how-to workshops, competitions, outreach, and targeted/focused events. Members range from highly experienced to no knowledge at all but interested in learning. Members can be comprised of students from all majors and levels, as well as faculty, staff and CEWiT alumnae affiliates.

About the 3D Printing SIG

CEWiT promotes a culture of technology skill development through a variety of content and formats including the understanding, design creation, and use of 3D printers. Through the process of 3D printing, one can create a 3-dimensional object by laying down successive layers of material based on a computer driven design. CEWiT provides workshops for students, faculty, and staff that introduce the concepts behind 3D printing and describes the design process, use of modeling software, and actual printing of the designed objects.
