Forum on Careers in Materials Science and Engineering
When: 3:00-5:30 p.m.
Where: Westin Hotel Indianapolis
Students will have the opportunity to discuss career opportunities that involve materials science and engineering with representatives from related industries. Hors d'oeuvres will be served, and this will be a wonderful opportunity to make industry connections and learn about new career options. Winners of the Joint ASM/TMS Chapters of Excellence Awards and selected ASM and TMS scholarships will be announced and the recipients recognized. There will be a break for dinner, and students will receive information about dining options around Indianapolis.

Student/Faculty Mixer
When: 7:30-10:00 p.m.
Where: Westin Hotel Indianapolis
The traditional mixer for students and faculty will be held Sunday evening, and everyone is encouraged to display school pride by wearing their school colors. Dress is informal, and everyone should plan to dance and have a great time. Snacks and beverages will be provided, and those who attend will be able to participate in a raffle for door prizes. Students, faculty, and executive officers are invited to attend. (Due to Indiana state law, beer will not be served to anyone under 21 years of age. Photo identification must be presented at the entrance to the mixer.)


A student lounge and career corner will be available throughout the week to gather information specific to undergraduate and graduate members. Learn how to get the most out of the conferences and expositions, relax between sessions, exchange membership recruitment ideas, learn about student membership opportunities, and tell us about your chapter. Career information will also be available, and a representative from ResumeLink, a free member resume database service, will be on hand to take resumes and answer questions. A schedule of daily activities will be posted.
