Wednesday, students of engineering, technology, manufacturing, operations, supply chain and logistics will experience first-hand the latest technologies and solutions as they tour the show floor with their professors as part of the Material Handling & Logistics Classroom Day. Accompanied by professors, these students are from four-year higher education programs.
The program is in its 10th year, explained Carmen Murphy, College Classroom Day coordinator for MHI, and MHI’s College Industry Council on Material Handling Education (CICMHE) puts the event together in conjunction with the Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association (MHEDA).
“The opportunity to spend time at the show offers students a better understanding of the latest industry developments by giving them a chance to see the variety of solutions that support the flow of materials throughout the supply chain for both manufacturing and distribution operations, all in one place,” said Murphy.
With more than 215 students and professors registered, this year’s group is the largest one ever to participate, added Murphy. Participating schools include: Alabama A&M University, Marquette University, Ohio State University, Penn State University, Purdue University, Rochester Institute of Technology, Southern Illinois University, Tennessee Tech University, University of Texas El Paso, Western Illinois University and Universidad Autonoma De Baja Calif., Mexico.
The day kicks off at 9:45 a.m. with breakfast in the Vista Ballroom (Room S-406A) of McCormick Place South. In addition to hearing presentations from industry professionals and recent graduates about material handling and logistics solutions, their development and current and future trends affecting both people and jobs in the industry, students will tour the show floor and visit selected show booths. Lunch is served at 1:30 p.m., followed by additional time on the show floor.
