The Department of Materials Science and Engineering offers a wide range of Undergraduate and Graduate courses, including classes in Processing of Materials, Foundry Technology, Casting and Solidification . Students have frequent opportunities to conduct casting experiments in the CMCL as part of these classes, laboratories and senior projects.

Summer Employment and Work Study

Undergraduate students in the School of Engineering interested in gaining hands-on experience in casting are encouraged to apply for summer employment. All our alumni will tell you we are "hot". Check it out even if you are not a Materials Science and Engineering major but interested in learning more about casting. Some of our recent Undergraduate part timers:


Local AFS Chapter

Another way for students to get involved is to join us at the monthly meetings of the local North-East Ohio Chapter of the American Foundry Society. You will learn more about the industry, meet a lot of nice people and even enjoy a free dinner. Every year the Chapter awards a number of scholarships to students with a demonstrated interest in metal casting at a special event, the Scholarship Night.
