Manufacturers and businesses from across New York State are coming to SUNY Poly October 12 from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. as the SUNY Poly Manufacturing Day Expo returns!
Free and open to the public, the annual Manufacturing Day Expo hosts manufacturers, businesses, and educators, as well as community member and students who are interested in manufacturing careers inside the Wildcat Field House on the Utica campus of SUNY Poly.
Manufacturers from across the state will showcase their products and technologies amongst 50+ interactive exhibits, as well as discuss immediate workforce needs and opportunities with students, the unemployed, underemployed, and veterans. Ranked #6 by U.S. News and World Report among Best Colleges for Veterans in Regional Universities (North), SUNY Poly makes a concerted effort to attract service members from Fort Drum to the event, ahead of their eventual transition out of military service. Additionally, middle and high school students from more than 25 school districts will learn about the importance of STEM studies in preparing for manufacturing careers.
The American Institute for Manufacturing Integrated Photonics (AIM Photonics) will also have an information booth where representatives will highlight the industry driven public-private partnership that focuses the nation’s premiere capabilities and expertise to strengthen U.S. leadership in photonics. Expo attendees will be able to learn more about the opportunities that AIM Photonics and the growing integrated photonics industry afford, both in New York State—and across the nation.
New this year is the first-ever Manufacturing Recruitment Day for SUNY Poly students from Noon to 2 p.m. following the Expo, sponsored by the Office of Career Services. This opportunity allows SUNY Poly students to connect directly with potential employers.
