Five metallurgical engineering students from Missouri S&T brought home scholarships from the Foundry Educational Foundation’s College Industry Conference in November.
The conference took place in Chicago on Nov. 17 and 18. Seven S&T students attended along with Dr. Laura Bartlett, Robert V. Wolf Associate Professor in Metallurgical Engineering and the Foundry Educational Foundation Key Professor at Missouri S&T.
The scholarship recipients are:
Jackson Piontek, a senior in metallurgical engineering from Washington, Missouri, and John Reutter, a junior in metallurgical engineering from Rolla, Missouri, also attended the conference as delegates.
The Foundry Educational Foundation (FEF) formed after World War II to address the need for skilled professionals in the cast metals industry and remains a major source of support for students. The FEF’s College Industry Conference is the largest recruiting event for the cast metals industry, providing students with opportunities to network with employers and win scholarships.
