The world’s first 3D printing college has reportedly opened up in China. A 3D printing manufacturer called Winbo is behind the tech trade school in Gungzhou City, which aims to set its students ahead of the unique technology curb worldwide.


The Baiyun Winbo 3D Printing Technology College has three fields of study: 3D Printing Research and Development Base, 3D Printing Teacher Training Center and the 3D Printing Student Practice Base.

The corporate college is the first of its kind in the world, and a bold investment in the stock of the 3D printing movement. While actual stock in 3D printing took a dive in 2014, the technology continues to make strides. This year alone, 3D printers were used to print a windpipe for a toddler, some reportedly delicious soft serve ice cream, and allowed for a wrench to be ‘e-mailed’ to space.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
