Industrial Partnerships | SEAS
The School for Engineering and Applied Sciences Industrial Partnership was established in February 2011 through initial funding provided by Logan Aluminum, Inc. located in Russellville, KY. We currently have fourteen partners who are strong supporters of our SEAS programs.

WKU's Industry Showcase events are networking opportunities for local industries and WKU's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences students. These showcases are hosted on Tuesdays and Thursdays for lunch in the Logan Aluminum conference room.
Students and guests will enjoy an informal pizza lunch and a presentation by the visiting company with a Q&A session for students. These networking opportunities allow the industry's leaders to get to know our students. Job opportunities are shared and resumes are exchanged as part of the event.
Our students will be able to compare company cultures and get insight into the different roles of engineers within the industry. Some companies bring several members of their team, including human resource professionals, engineers, and/or plant and production managers.
