The University of Texas at Austin is still involved in RP. They have an
RP lab and have graduate work being done on it. They are currently
focusing their work in the manufacturing area. It appears our country
has realized we can't work for the wages and benefit packages our
Chinese bretheren are accustomed to. So. . . as the old saying goes -
"Work smarter, not harder." So, the effort is to find new ways to
introduce the RP technologies into mainstream production.

Subject: [rp-ml] Where are the Universities?

We get the feeling that the university interest in RP has really
dwindled over the past several years. Is this observation unique to us,
or has there been a major downsizing in RP efforts at the colleges and
universities that others have also observed? ( e.g, Clemson used to be
a major contributor to the list, but now it is difficult to discern any
interest in RP at that school).
