industryXchange 2017

In an effort to build strong connections between the College of Engineering and industry, especially in regard to key research areas, we are launching a new industry engagement workshop, industryXchange, to connect industry leaders and academics to discuss ways they can successfully work together.

If you are a Penn State engineering faculty member or are interested in partnering with the College of Engineering on a research project, contact Priya Baboo, Director of Industry, Innovation, and Development, at for more information about attending industryXchange.
