Professional Development and Tours

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, foundry club has not been able to host in-person events since November 2019. As of February 2021, the university announced the return of limited in-person activities for student organizations. Foundry club is currently working on plans to resume touring foundries. Additionally, local foundry professionals have been giving virtual talks on the latest of the industry.  These meetings work to provide a perspective into the industry, as well as a learning and networking opportunity for the students in the club.
