Seminar Spring 2014-Mechanical Engineering - Carnegie Mellon University

Spring 2014 Seminar Speaker Series

During the academic year, the Mechanical Engineering Department conducts a Seminar Series which is free and open to the public. One of the purposes of the seminar series is to broaden our students' experience, intellectually, and to aid in their professional development by providing another connection with the world of industry and business; speakers are chosen from a variety of disciplines within Mechanical Engineering to generate wide appeal within the department.

Please check back often as topics and posters will be added as they become available.
