Bringing real-world metal fabricating to college

Today’s engineering students are bright and very good conceptual thinkers. Jensen said that where they might fall short is in the hands-on experiences of actually building things and rebuilding them when they don’t quite work. But engineering labs like Oregon State’s are designed to help introduce them to the real-world technologies that make the computer work a reality. That’s been a little easier for Jensen since the lab acquired a waterjet cutting machine that proved to be the perfect fit, literally and figuratively.
