New design of automotive construction materials has become of paramount importance to not only reduce the carbon footprint of their final products but also to increase efficiency and decrease cost of vehicles. The use of new advanced materials in vehicles will significantly increase fuel efficiency and cut emissions, but the auto industry lacks data and material models needed to reliably manufacture vehicle components from various substitutes, including aluminum alloys, high-strength steels and polymer composites.

McMurray, our new STEM Outreach Coordinator. Saleta studied mechanical
engineering at MCC and LTU and spent more than 10 years working in
progressively more responsible engineering positions at DaimlerChrysler and
Chrysler Group LLC. During her years as an Engineer, she nearly completed the
process of becoming a teacher through the Saginaw Valley State Accelerated
Teaching Program.Saleta hopes that sharing her engineering experience
will allow students to gain a better understanding of engineering and other
promising technical careers available to students who study the STEM
disciplines.Please join us in welcoming Saleta to the CAAT team!
CAAT supports the Michigan Advanced Technician Training through its grant from the National Science Foundation, the CAAT provided seed funding to Kettering University to develop three courses on lightweighting through their Mechanical Engineering Department. While Kettering was busy developing the course modules, the MAT 2 program at Macomb approached the CAAT for assistance in providing MAT 2 students with a much needed course on advanced materials. Kettering University completed the development of the three course modules, and two of their faculty members are currently teaching an Advanced Materials course (PRDE 2918) for Macomb's MAT 2 students at Macomb Community College's south campus in Warren, MI!
