Named Professorship At Colorado School Of Mines (CSM)

Forging Industry Educational and Research Foundation

FIERF's endowment to create the Center of Forging Excellence at CSM provides a coordinating source with technical universities and other FIERF-designated Magnet Schools, and promotes forging-related courses. Professor Kester Clarke holds the FIERF professorship at CSM.

This professorship has two primary objectives:

  1. To promote forging education through the efforts of the named FIERF Professor, both at CSM and within the engineering higher education community at large.
  2. To reap the benefits of FIERF interaction with the Advanced Steel Processing and Products Research Center (ASPPRC) at CSM.
