Public Hands-On Seminars

MSOE’s Applied Technology CenterTM regularly offers seminars that are designed to keep engineers and managers abreast of cutting-edge technological development, current applications and newly developed techniques. While some of these seminars focus on the foundation of fluid power, others explore more advanced sophisticated concepts in a high-tech, applications-oriented environment.


Unless otherwise noted, all public seminars take place at the headquarters of our new education partner, GS Global Resources.
