In academic year 2014/2015, the MEM Society supported the MEM lab through assisting with space preparation, equipment maintenance and training, laboratory assistance and mentoring our cohort in academics.
We also participated in factory tours, a visit to CCAT ( Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology) and led the inaugural MEM Service Day to the Hole in the Wall Gang camp in Ashford, Connecticut and a spring Service Day to iClick in Willimantic, Connecticut.
We also serve as hosts of the MEM annual banquet that showcase the talent and achievements of MEM program students, staff, and industry partners. As hosts of the banquet we provide networking opportunities for students with university and industry professionals, give our directors a forum in which to issue scholarship awards to students, and secure a keynote speaker to provide a unique perspective on a career in MEM.
In short, each year, in everything we do, we are mindful of our primary mission, which is to assure the success of the MEM program, MEM undergraduate students, and MEM alumni, now and in the future.
