In November, Texas State students attended the annual FEF College Industry Conference at the Westin Hotel in downtown Chicago. Texas State is one of only 20 FEF accredited Metalcasting Programs in the United States. FEF provides thousands of dollars each year in scholarship opportunities and equipment to support our students. The College Industry Conference brings together what FEF is all about: students, professors, and industry leaders. Companies have a unique opportunity to meet the top engineering students in the country.The Career Information Session allows a company to interview or to acquaint future leaders with their products and services. More than $40,000 in special scholarships and grants is available to undergraduate and graduate students. Texas State Key Professor, Dr. Farhad Ameri attended this year’s CIC along with AFS students Eunice Solis, Parker Jackson, Jeremiah Converse, and Carter McCain.
Special congratulations to Eunice Solis, who won a$2,000 Scholarship. Eunice is the second Texas State student to win a scholarship at CIC since 2010.
