YSU STEM hosts Advanced Manufacturing meeting

The College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics at Youngstown State University is hosting the Winter Meeting of the Advanced Manufacturing Initiative 7:30 to 9 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5.

The meeting will be in Room 2400 of Moser Hall at YSU.

Martin Abraham, STEM dean, will discuss how the new college can benefit local manufacturers. Abraham has a bachelor’s degree and a Ph.D. in chemical engineering. He joined YSU in July, after serving as dean of the College of Graduate Studies at the University of Toledo. He is a member of the governing board of the Ohio Fuel Cell Coalition, editor of Environmental Progress, a quarterly journal on industrial environmental concerns, and is a member of numerous other boards and committees.

Nationally, the number of jobs in technical fields is growing at five times the rate of other occupations, while the number of students entering the field is declining. Locally, Mahoning Valley manufacturers are seeking innovative solutions and must make technologically advanced improvements to effectively compete in the global economy. 

The newly created STEM College at YSU is addressing those needs by realigning all technically–relevant programs into a single academic unit. YSU is well–positioned to not only meet the workforce needs of local employers, but also to create interdisciplinary teams of professors and students to conduct cutting edge research and development.

To register for the meeting, contact Steve Katros at sfkatros@ysu.edu or 330–941–3009. Please indicate “RSVP for AMI Meeting” in the subject field.ᅠ Parking will be available in the parking deck at the corner of Lincoln and Fifth avenues. Reservations are required for parking purposes.
