This years activities have included our annual spring Materials Day, as well as an MSE colloquium presentation and open career discussion with graduate students with Prof. Diran Apelian of WPI.
Materials day was earlier this spring, and was once again a wonderful experience for both the visiting high schoolers and the ASM volunteers. The high schoolers spent the whole day at BU, participating in modules run by ASM industry members such as cryogenics, batteries, metal forming, and shape memory alloys, among others. We look forward to hosting this event this upcoming spring as well.
The highlight of Prof. Diran Apelian’s visit for several students was definitely the open career discussion, as about many of us spent 2 hours having lunch and a free-flowing discussion with Prof. Apelian about career goals and how to achieve them. Professor Apelian’s colloquium presentation was well attended and garnered many questions as well.
