STUDENT SESSION AT THE SPRING IAB MEETING

Students involved in CenTiRe funded research projects held a student session during the recent IAB meeting.  This was a great opportunity for them to get to know one another better, especially across universities, and to discuss issues important to them.

In preparation for the meeting the students requested that an IAB member help them to understand the transition from student to employee at a member company.  Nihar Raje of Bridgestone gave an excellent presentation on “Working in the Tire/Vehicle Industry: The Transition to Professional Life”.
 
The students also provided feedback to the IAB members and Center Directors via a survey.  The results of the survey will be used in future planning.
