Next WIMSEA Meeting: Friday, April 18 (Reception Thursday, Dec. 17)
Wisconsin Idea: Materials Science and Engineering Affiliates
THE MISSION of WIMSEA is to promote university outreach, industry participation in university research and education, and networking among individuals and companies in materials-related fields.
INDUSTRY PARTNERS RECEIVE early access to students, opportunities to work with and mentor students, access to the newest instrumentation and research, and opportunity to help guide the future of Materials education and research at UW Madison.
Thank you for making our previous WIMSEA meetings great successes! We received many useful suggestions and have tried to address these by taking action on things we can do quickly. We are also incorporating suggestions that require long-term action into the MSAE Department Strategic Plan.
Now it's on to our third meeting! Please join us on Thursday, April 17 and Friday, April 18, 2013
In this meeting we ask alumni, industrial partners, and friends of the UW Materials Community to meet our students, staff, and faculty. We also ask our visitors to give input into our Department Strategic Plan. Participation costs 50$ to cover expenses and a day of your time! THERE IS NO REGISTRATION FEE FOR STUDENTS OR STAFF.
