Wisconsin Idea: Materials Science and Engineering Affiliates
THE PURPOSE 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.
In the inaugural meeting we ask alumni, industrial partners, and friends of the UW Materials Community to help us design the WIMSEA charter. Participation costs 50$ to cover expenses, and a day of your time! THERE IS NO REGISTRATION FEE FOR STUDENTS OR STAFF.
