2023 TRESSLER AWARDS
3:05 to 4:20 p.m. on Thursday, March 30 in 111 Wartik Lab
“Metals Science & Engineering – Materials Lab Intern to Lab Owner”
Walt Moorhead, President, Product Evaluation Systems, Inc.
At the start of the spring semester throughout all universities, students start the pursuit of a summer internship in their respective field. We’ve all heard our parents and college advisors stress the importance of obtaining an internship. Some think it’s a great addition for that line item on our resumes which in turn helps land a job upon graduation. I personally think it’s worth a whole lot more and I’ll share with you my journey from intern to owner. Also, I’ll discuss Product Evaluation Systems’ (PES) ongoing effort to make the world safer for all through materials engineering testing.
Moorhead received a B.S. in Metallurgy from Penn State.
The Tressler Lecture is part of the Destinguished Lecture Series sponsored by MatSE each spring.
