Shawnee State University will be hosting its annual Plastics Day starting at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, December 6 in the Advanced Technology Center.
Plastics Day is an interactive campus visit program which allows students to learn about SSU’s Plastics Engineering Technology program. Participants will have the opportunity to tour the campus, in particular the ATC building where the manufacturing and 3D labs are, speak to current students in the program, attend a panel session with our successful alumni, and meet our faculty.
Sessions for the day include Part Design & 3D Printing, where students will learn how to design plastics part on the computer then how to print their 3D version of the part; How to Make a Plastic Part, a session where students will get the chance to operate plastics operating equipment such as extruders, injection molding machines, and rotational molders, then take home their choice of polymer based plastic products; and Meet Alumni, where students get to explore the program and ask our recent graduates about their current employment opportunities and what’s trending in the industry now.
