A group of manufacturing and mechanical engineering technology students at Pittsburg State University were honored at the Foundry Educational Foundation (FEF) College Industry Career Conference held last week in Chicago. Four PSU students were awarded a total of $8,000 at the 63rd annual conference, held Nov. 18-19.
A total of seven PSU students attended as delegates, and four of those - Garrett Sass, a manufacturing engineering technology major from Westmoreland, Kan.; Tyler Farmer, a mechanical engineering technology from De Soto, Kan.; Jeremy Faulkender, a mechanical engineering technology major from Olathe, Kan.; and Brett Currier, a manufacturing engineering technology major from Overland Park, Kan. - were awarded the scholarships.
These four students were selected as scholarship winners from a field of 93 student delegates representing universities from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The PSU students brought home 16 percent of the total scholarships awarded at the event. More than 225 industry executives, student delegates, key professors and university administrators were in attendance.
