Case Western Reserve University Hosts Technology & Workforce Development Summit

On April 4, 2018, forging industry producers and suppliers met with representatives from Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) and Cleveland State University (CSU) to find ways to bolster relationships, hire students and find research partnerships.
New FIERF Magnet School Professors Chris Yuan from the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at CWRU and Tushar Borkar representing the Mechanical Engineering Department at CSU shared ways to become engaged with students through plant tours, course presentations and more.


Following a roundtable discussion of ideas on how best the Forging Foundation can facilitate curriculum and student interactions with industry, participants received recruiting tips from Drew Poppleton at the CWRU Career Center and toured Professor John Lewandowski’s Advanced Manufacturing and Mechanical Reliability Center that features hot, warm and cold forming research capabilities for forging research and ThinkBox.


Upcoming Technology & Workforce Development Summits are scheduled at the Illinois Institute of Technology on September 6 and Penn State University on September 30. Contact the Karen Lewis at [email protected] or 216-862-6967 to receive more information and to register for the programs.
