ESU One of the First in the World and Designated as Stratasys Super Lab

One of the first three in the world. It’s hard to imagine those odds, but at East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania (ESU) it’s a reality as the University’s G3 Design Lab celebrates its first semester as a Stratasys Super Lab, one of the first three in the world.

When Stratasys, a corporation that leads the world in 3D printers, launched the J750 3D printer in 2015, the company provided only three universities in the world with the new printer: East Stroudsburg University, Columbia University and New York University. This technology now provides ESU students with state-of-the-art experiences in the exciting field of additive manufacturing.
