Grant programme to support students attending Additive Manufacturing industry show

February 8, 2017

The US National Science Foundation has announced the approval of a grant programme to support forty students from US institutions to attend the AMPM2017 and POWDERMET2017 conferences taking place in Las Vegas, USA, June 13–16, 2017. The awards will cover the full conference registration fee and a three-night hotel accommodation.

Organised by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) the Additive Manufacturing with Powder Metallurgy (AMPM) and the International Conference on Powder Metallurgy & Particulate Materials (POWDERMET) are essential destinations for anyone with an interest in metal powders.

“We continually see that there is a shortage of skilled workers. This is a huge opportunity for students interested in pursuing careers in engineering or materials science,” stated MPIF Executive Director/CEO Jim Adams. “Students will be able to meet and learn from some of the best engineers and component designers in the industry by attending technical sessions, special interest programs, walking the exhibition hall, and networking during industry luncheons and evening events.”

The MPIF expressed its gratitude to the National Science Foundation for its support of students to attend the POWDERMET2017 & AMPM2017 annual conferences. The support provides student participants with opportunities to exchange ideas with leading researchers and engineers from worldwide industrial and governmental facilities, as well as with students and faculty from both domestic and international universities.
