Wednesday seminar focuses on industry partnerships

Growing a mutually beneficial partnership with a company from industry can be a lengthy process that, if handled successfully, could lead to long term engagement and funding opportunities. One of the ways to produce a relationship with industry is through partnering to create real-world classroom problems based on the immediate needs of the company.

Join the Office of Research and Economic Development at Mississippi State for a "Using Real-World Problems in the Classroom to Grow Industry Partnerships" seminar on Wednesday [Jan. 11] at 2 p.m. in the theater at Bost Extension Center.

The purpose of this seminar will be to discuss the types of successful classroom problems that have been used in the past to grow industry relationships here at MSU as well as recommendations on what makes a successful project for both the students and the sponsor.

Kathy Gelston, associate vice president for corporate engagement and economic development, and Reuben Burch, an assistant professor in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, will lead the seminar.
