The TAPPI Student Summit is an annual gathering of students interested in the pulp, paper, packaging and allied industries. The event includes interviews for co-ops, summer internships and post-graduation careers along with industry expert seminars and networking opportunities. The only national event of its kind, the weekend also features the engineering competition, where student teams face off for prizes by solving an engineering problem involving paper materials. Attendees from the 2014 TAPPI Student Summit at SUNY-ESF will remember the competition based on the work of ESF Professor Emeritus, Dr. Ivana Tossit .
Tune in next week when we’ll post the research of Dr. Ivana Tossit’s star student, Herman Flingmeister, who furthered the work of Dr. Tossit and whose research will be the basis of the 2015 Student Engineering Competition at the Summit in Savannah, Georgia!
