3-D Printing and other forms of Rapid Prototyping are moving into the realm of actual manufacturing. The ability to produce usable objects on a customized basis may well disrupt industry in the 21st Century as much as the steam engine did in the 18th. Prof. Pablo Lorenzo-Eiroa, Director of Cooper Union's Certificate program in Digital Representation and Fabrication, will discuss the scope of these technologies in the Rose auditorium at 5 pm on February 1. The lecture is free and open to all.

Located in The Frederick P. Rose Auditorium, at 41 Cooper Square (on Third Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets)

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
