Nucor Week at Missouri University of Science and Technology will be held Sept. 15-17. Representatives from Nucor will be on campus Wednesday, Sept. 16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to discuss career opportunities with Missouri S&T students and to accept resumes for intern and cooperative positions.
Nucor, a manufacturer of a wide variety of carbon and steel products, is the largest employer of metallurgical engineering students at Missouri S&T and a major employer of all S&T graduates.
In addition to recruiting Missouri S&T students, Nucor supports a variety of organizations on campus, including the Engineers Without Borders, the American Society of Civil Engineers and the picnic for metallurgical engineers. Nucor has also created an endowed professorship in S&T’s materials science and engineering department, providing support for steel making and processing research.
While on campus, Nucor representatives – many of them Missouri S&T graduates – will present guest lectures in a variety of classes with topics ranging from steel manufacturing and design, to leadership and motivation in the workforce. They will also lead a class for the Chancellor’s Leadership Academy Alumni Class, involving leadership training, leadership careers, and the application of leadership within a global community.
With operating facilities primarily in the U.S. and Canada, Nucor produces carbon and alloy steel in bars, beams, sheet and plate; steel joists and joist girders; steel deck; fabricated concrete reinforcing steel; cold finished steel; steel fasteners; metal building systems; light gauge steel framing; steel grating and expanded metal; and wire and wire mesh. Nucor, through The David J. Joseph Co., also brokers ferrous and nonferrous metals, pig iron and HBI/DRI; supplies ferro-alloys; and processes ferrous and non ferrous scrap. Nucor is North America’s largest recycler.
In 2006, Nucor donated $2 million to Missouri S&T to establish the Kenneth Iverson Steel Technology Chair, named in honor of Nucor’s founding chairman. Dr. Kent Peaslee, Curators’ Teaching Professor of metallurgical engineering, holds the Iverson Chair.
