About Industry Day

MSE Industry Day is a showcase of our graduate students’ cutting-edge research for colleagues, faculty, and representatives from industry. Prospective employers interact with our undergraduate and graduate students and discuss internship and job opportunities.

Our goal is that the symposium provides avenues for collaboration and an introduction to potential employers for our students. Presentations and posters at the symposium cover clean energy generation and storage, biomaterials, semiconductors, composites and more. Attendees can find ideas of interest to their organizations while helping to improve the quality of our graduate education.
