Brenda, Greg and Brian teach in the College of Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Management (CSTEMM) at US-Stout in Menomonie, WI. They have over 40 years of combined experience in industry and education. In addition to their collective passion for research and education in metal casting, they have a variety of individual interests including Women in STEM, Engineering and Technology Literacy and Risk Control and Safety Management.

About the Topic:

What are young professionals looking for in a career nowadays? How can we attract their talent to the metal casting industry? What do we have to offer them and their career aspirations?

We will try to answer these questions and more as we chat with the UW-Stout AFS Student Chapter. We will hear from this group of prospective industry talent on their current efforts to introduce students to metal casting and encourage them to pursue a career in the industry.
