MSE 505 field trip to ExxonMobil with IAC Drector Nan Yao
A group of 34 students from our MSE 505 class visited ExxonMobil Company in Clinton, New Jersey in the afternoon of April 26. It was fascinating for our students to see the impressive facilities and advanced equipment in use at the ExxonMobil research center. The experience helped our students (mostly graduate students who may end up using these materials characterization techniques) in gaining a better idea of industrial applications for imaging and analysis techniques and getting a broader picture of how things are done in the 'real world'. The experience will certainly continue to impact them as their careers unfold.
