2015 MSE Industry Day

The third annual MSE Industry Day was held October 29. The day began with panel presentations from industry representatives who discussed their corporate experiences and what companies are looking for when hiring.  Representative from Kimberly-Clark Corp, The Coca-Cola Company, ExxonMobil, the Boeing Company and DuPont spoke to the graduate students.  Undergraduates heard from representatives from Phillips 66, EcoLab, Halyard Health, Shaw Industries, and Phenetix.

Following the student panels, over thirty industry representatives participated in the guided tours of MSE labs in the Marcus Nanotechnology Building and the Molecular Science and Engineering Building. Biria Carbon, Lockheed Martin, and Imerys were among the many companies that participated.

This year’s Industry Day included vendors of products that MSE faculty and students frequently use. Each of the vendors, MTS Systems Corporation, Teledyne LeCroy, and TA Instruments had a table for demonstrations and representatives were available for Q&A.

The day concluded with a student poster session and reception in the atrium of the Parker H. Petit Institute of Bioengineering and Biosciences. The MSE Undergraduate Research Scholars presented posters, as well as thirty graduate posters, representing most of the MSE faculty.
