FIA members are invited to participate in the Forging Industry Educational & Research Foundation's (FIERF) Tech & Workforce Development Summit at Marquette University on Thursday, March 21, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Meet FIERF Magnet School Mechanical Engineering Professor Joe Domblesky, his faculty and students.
Get insider tips on co-op, internship and new hire opportunities.
Hear students report on FIERF sponsored research that includes Smart Robotic Press Tenders and Die Surface Friction.
Develop industry-academic partnerships that have the potential to address issues at your plant.
Tour the engineering workspaces and lab facilities - this will include areas where forging-related work is being done and features a student-built hydraulic press and other experimental and testing capabilities that were developed in part with FIERF and FIA member assistance.
