Carnegie Mellon Materials Science Symposium Review

Carnegie Mellon University’s Materials Science & Engineering Graduate Symposium, started three years ago as a half-day event to showcase graduate student research, is evolving into a dynamic gathering of the brightest young minds in the field. The full-day 2010 symposium featured 14 oral presentations, 19 poster presentations, and–for the first time–corporate sponsorship in the form of a grant from Goodfellow Corp., a supplier of metals and materials for research and industry.

“Our ultimate goal is to create an exciting academic event here at Carnegie Mellon that attracts the best and the brightest graduate students, as presenters or as attendees, from across the country,” said Michael Bockstaller, Ph.D., assistant professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Carnegie Mellon and organizer of the event. “This year we enjoyed unprecedented student participation and look forward to an even larger event next year. The enthusiasm of the students and the quality of their research propel us toward our goal, as does the professional collaboration and support of Goodfellow.”

Goodfellow specializes in supplying research quantities of high-quality metals, polymers, ceramics and other materials to universities and other research facilities. Stephen Aldersley, president of Goodfellow Corp., said there was an additional reason for the sponsorship. “Virtually all of us at Goodfellow have science backgrounds ourselves, so we understand the excitement and the challenges of breaking new ground in our chosen field. It’s an honor to recognize and support the hard work of these talented young scientists.”

The 4th Annual Materials Science & Engineering Graduate Symposium will take place at Carnegie Mellon University in the spring of 2011. For details, contact Professor Bockstaller at bockstaller@cmu.edu.
