This is a past event.
Manufacturing Day is held across the nation on the first Friday in October to demonstrate to students, industries, and the public what manufacturing in the age of Industry 4.0 is all about. With rapid developments in AI and automation, new advancements in technologies are changing the way that we see manufacturing. Manufacturing Day celebrates this recent progress and along with its future potential. From high school students participating in robotics competitions to data scientists in semiconductor facilities to biotechnicians in pharmaceuticals, there's more than enough room for everyone in manufacturing!
As part of Showcase [AI], Michigan Tech is excited to celebrate Manufacturing Day along with the rest of the nation! Starting with a manufacturing competition for K-12 students, tours of Michigan Tech's state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, and a demonstration from Waupaca Foundry's portable casting system, Manufacturing Day will host a keynote speech from Tom Kelly, the CEO of Automation Alley. From there, Dr. Jeffrey Horn will discuss deep-scale evolution for industrial shape nesting in collaboration with his work with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. The event will conclude with interactive displays from local manufacturers and Michigan Tech student organizations.
Students, faculty, alumni, and visitors are all welcome to the event!
