Attention all college students, professors, parents, and educators! MTConnect is hitting the road to visit college campuses and conferences across the country to discuss the ins an outs of the MTConnect Student Challenge. At each stop we’ll be getting attendees up to speed on what MTConnect is, explaining the challenge in depth, discussing what possible tools students may need, and giving pointers to open source technology so students can begin their work with a minimal learning curve and startup costs. Cash prizes for the challenge total up to $33K, so this an opportunity you do not want to miss! We encourage all students, faculty, and education professionals to stop by and join us for refreshments and to learn more about the challenge— which could also serve as a rewarding thesis topic, internship, or capstone project.
Please see our schedule below to learn where you can meet-up with us. Don’t see your campus but would like to know more about the challenge? Please feel free to reach out to us through Twitter and Facebook— we want to help as many students as possible get jump started on this rewarding opportunity!
