The importance of manufacturing to the economic well being of a nation is well established. Manufacturing industries, however, are facing ever increasing challenges posed by technological innovation, stiff foreign competition, environmental challenges, and workforce issues. The reaction to these challenges is changing the face of manufacturing across the world. Materials are an essential component of every manufactured component, and as such, materials scientists and engineers must be knowledgeable of and responsive to the rapid changes throughout the manufacturing sector. The purpose of the Megatrends '96 Symposium is to provide a forum for the dissemination of crucial information from recognized leaders regarding emerging directions within select materials industries. Education leaders will describe related transformations within colleges and universities, and examples of effective partnerships between industry, universities, and Federal laboratories will be highlighted.
