About Milwaukee Section Student Grant Challenge
Student Chapters from MSOE, UW-Madison, UW-Milwaukee, Michigan Tech, Marquette and Northern Michigan University will be making presentations on their SAE Collegiate Design Series projects as part of the 2008 Milwaukee Section Student Grant Program. Sponsors of the “Rapid Product Development Exposition” are contributing financial, services and gifts in kind.

This year’s Student Night is hosted by Mike Krauski, Director of Corporate Relations, UWM College of Engineering & Applied Science. The Rapid Product Development Exposition is our showcase of industry and student engineering talent, and their projects including the Collegiate Design Series:
• Aero Design®
• Clean Snowmobile Challenge TM
• Formula SAE® Series
• Baja SAE® Series
• Supermileage®

This is an excellent opportunity to network with a group of engineers that have taken extra steps to develop an experience that puts them beyond academics. These men and women will present their stories of how they conquered technical challenges, developed practical skills, created an intuitive confidence, grew as leaders and prepared them to be productive engineers. (and having a lot of fun in the process)

Section members are invited to view student displays, ask questions, review their presentations and influence how grant offerings will be distributed. Please invite your Human Resources staff and hiring managers to attend. Several international companies have discovered that SAE student experiences have translated very well into the workplace. Students are also looking for internships, senior design projects and research work.
