Next WIMSEA Meeting:  Friday, Nov. 7, 2014 (Reception Thursday, Nov. 6)

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.    

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.  

WIMSEA brings in alumni and industrial partners to meet and interact with our students. It provides a forum for outside partners to sponsor senior design projects, contribute expertise to the educational mission of the university, help mentor students, and help us maintain a modern and relevant curriculum. Outside partners gain access to our latest research and research facilities.
