Materials Industry Club (MIC) resumes in-person events after two years

After its pandemic hiatus, the Materials Industry Club (MIC) is back hosting in-person events in the 2022-2023 academic year with a new executive team.

The club’s goal is to promote interaction between MSE students, the faculty, and industry professionals and to ensure that the students in the department succeed in school, are exposed to future career options, and most importantly have fun with their fellow classmates. They hope to accomplish this by hosting various social events, technical talks, trips to industries, and networking events.

Most recently, on November 2nd, the club hosted, MSE Research Showcase, a hybrid event with the goal of exposing undergraduate and graduate students to different research work that is taking place by MSE faculty members and graduate students.
