On Friday February 1st, MAGMA offered its first ever University Experience event. One of our goals was to gather University Students from the schools with MAGMASOFT® licenses to help them see new and exciting ways to use our software. The other goal was to get them excited about manufacturing, specifically the foundry industry.
We had 17 students register for the event. In spite of the polar vortex and record setting low temperatures in the Chicagoland area, 15 of the registered students were able to make it for the event. University of Northern Iowa, Trine University, Iowa State University, Pittsburg State University, Michigan Technological University, Kent State University and University of Wisconsin-Platteville all sent students to participate.
