Creating life-saving implants for cancer patients and helping launch satellites into space are all in a day’s work for AUT alumnus Kurt Schmidt.

As Production Manager at titanium 3D printing company Zenith Tecnica, Kurt spends his days – and often his nights – making things better for people and the planet.

“The work we do is so critical that when customer orders come in, there’s no slacking,” he explains. “One delay from us could literally hold up a rocket from launching or cost someone their chance of walking again – there’s a lot of pressure.”
