About this Symposium
Meeting Materials Science & Technology 2018
Symposium Perspectives for Emerging Materials Professionals
Organizer(s) Andrew E. Frerichs, The NanoSteel Company
Dharma R. Maddala, Arconic
Scope This symposium targets students and early career professionals in the field of materials science and engineering. The symposium aims to provide an opportunity for the target audience to hear from and start a dialog with materials professionals in an effort to help make informed decisions for their upcoming career paths.

This annual symposium covers a wide range of relevant topics to materials science and engineering career paths: career perspectives and advice from government labs, academia, and industry; career mobility; entrepreneurship, small business, licensure, and intellectual property; volunteerism, international experiences; continuing materials training and education opportunities; emerging careers and professional development in the new economy; among others. This symposium also seeks to provide a forum for dialogue about job searches, job satisfaction, and technical matters from each of the industrial, academic, and government lab sectors.

Contributed talks are strongly encouraged from all affiliate societies, education levels and across the range of career lengths. The number of talks in the symposium will be limited and will feature keynote talks where available. A panel discussion session is planned so that a dialog can take place between speakers, students, and early career professionals on the topics presented.
