Conference attendance

The conference will include faculty, students, and professionals from industry, government, and academia. At the 2023 MSEC | NAMRC 51, there were 750 attendees including 350 students.

Industry Night event intent

The intent is to provide an energetic, informal opportunity for industry/government sponsors to meet, engage with, and recruit manufacturing students into their workforce. Sponsors will have a booth to serve as a gathering place for student discussions. Other activities include industry/government presentations to describe capabilities, an oscillating piston air engine assembly competition, an open house for the Machine Tool Research Center to see manufacturing equipment, and food/drink throughout the evening. There is no cost to participate for conference attendees.
