Steel Organizations Team to Attract Top Talent

Steel Organizations Team to Attract Top Talent

Friday, March 25, 2005
 
Designed to attract top talent to the North American steel industry, the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) and the Association for Iron and Steel Technology Foundation (AIST Foundation) have teamed to launch the Ferrous Metallurgy Education Today initiative. The initiative includes a scholarship and summer-internship program for college juniors and seniors, a design grant program, a curriculum-development program and a steel industry-university advisory roundtable. “The steel industry needs to cultivate the next generation of skilled metallurgists who will create the innovative products that will strengthen steel’s position as the material of choice for thousands of industrial and consumer applications,” says Ron Ashburn, AIST Foundation executive director. “This initiative brings us one step closer to that goal.” The initiative is expected to be fully operational by fall 2005.
