This year, the Ceramic Education Council (CEC) (a class of The American Ceramic Society), in collaboration with the President’s Council of Student Advisors (PCSA), has implemented a program to help foster relationships between students, academia and industry. The CEC is pairing industry and national lab professionals with students for a lunch discussion. This will give students a chance to ask candid questions in an informal, intimate setting about careers in materials science. Lunch is the responsibility of each participant, and the CEC is simply linking students with industry/national lab volunteers. Previous professional volunteers included employees from Mo-Sci, Corning, PPG, General Electric, Saint Gobain and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
If you are a student and interested in eating lunch with an industry professional during your lunchtime on Wednesday, October 15 (12 -1 pm) at MS&T14, contact Ed Sabolsky before October 8, 2014. This opportunity is on a first come, first served basis as we have to limit the number of students based on our number of volunteers. We will arrange a meeting place and time at the convention center, and information will be sent to all participants before the conference.
