The University of Wisconsin-Platteville College of Engineering, Mathematics and Science is bringing real-world engineering projects to students, faculty, and the public through EMS Engineering Seminar Series. Free and open to the public, the series will highlight engineering projects and insight from top experts in the field. Attendees are eligible for one professional development hour.

“Through a wide range of topics, we believe the EMS Engineering Seminar Series aligns well with UW-Platteville’s mission: empower each student to become broader in perspective, intellectually more astute, and contribute wisely to our community,” said Dr. Danny Xiao, Assistant Professor of civil engineering at UW-Platteville and an organizer of the event. “It also provides a networking opportunity for attendees.”

“We are so grateful to all speakers, many of whom are alumni, who either provide sponsorship to the seminar series or give presentations free of charge,” said Xiao. “Even more, many of them have traveled several hours to Platteville at their own cost. It is this ‘pay it forward’ spirit that motivates us to keep offering the EMS Engineering Seminar Series free to the public.”
