Representatives from industry will have the opportunity to learn how their companies can benefit from research at Missouri University of Science and Technology during Missouri S&T’s second annual Industry Day, which will be held Monday, Sept. 25, on the S&T campus.
This year, Industry Day will take place one day prior to the Fall Career Fair, which brings representatives from hundreds of companies to campus to recruit Missouri S&T students.
“This change will make it easier for our industry partners to make the most of their visits to campus,” says John Eash, executive director of corporate relations at Missouri S&T. “This year we’ve built in more time for networking with faculty and students and have added student research poster displays.”
Space is limited for Industry Day, and advance registration is required. The registration fee is $25. Register online at corporaterelations.mst.edu/involvement/industry-day. Deadline to register is Friday, Sept. 15. Late registrations may be accepted if space permits by calling 573-341-7565.
Check-in begins at 8 a.m. Monday, Sept. 25, with a continental breakfast followed by a welcome from interim Chancellor Chris Maples.
From 9-10 a.m., a panel of experts will discuss the benefits of research with Missouri S&T, as well as intellectual property agreements. Speakers include Dr. Ming Leu, director of the Intelligent Systems Center and the Keith and Pat Bailey Missouri Distinguished Professor of Integrated Product Manufacturing; Keith Strassner, director of technology transfer and economic development at Missouri S&T; and Ben Brown from the Department of Energy’s National Security Campus managed by Honeywell in Kansas City, Missouri. Missouri S&T and Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technology signed a master collaboration agreement in September 2015.
From 10-11 a.m., Missouri S&T research centers and consortia directors will present overviews of their research. Center and consortia displays and a student poster showcase will be held 11 a.m.-noon.
Lunch with faculty and students will begin at noon, followed by tours of campus laboratories and research centers. The event will conclude at 4 p.m.
