Industry Day 2020-Virtual took place on August 10, 2020.
Sponsors: Procter & Gamble, DuPont, and the ASC Center for Career and Professional Success.
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has been working diligently to develop strong relationships with industry. To support this effort, the department began hosting an Industry Day event starting in 2018.
The event focuses on opportunities for industry to learn more about the department, instrumentation and capabilities, research areas, and currently available technologies, while engaging with faculty, graduate students, and postdocs. Industry may also schedule private meetings with faculty, take tours across campus, or schedule interviews with students. The dates for 2021 have not yet been determined.
Why does industry participate in this event? Talent, networking with students and faculty, and identification of potential research collaborations.
