MSE Industry Day

At MSE Industry Day we showcase our students.  We present our graduate students’ cutting-edge research to colleagues, faculty, and representatives from industry.  Prospective employers access our undergraduate and graduate students for discussion of internship and job opportunities.

Oral presentations and posters at the symposium cover a wide range of topics including clean energy generation and storage, biomaterials, semiconductors, and composites. As an attendee, you can gain ideas of interest to your organization, while at the same time help to improve the quality of our graduate education.The symposium provides avenues for collaboration and valuable access to potential employers for our students.
