Fluid Power Clubs Bring Fluid Power to University Students

Programs like the Fluid Power Clubs are made possible in part by the generous support of industry volunteers as well as NFPA Education and Technology Foundation and Pascal Society donors. Support these efforts by making a donation.


The NFPA Technology and Education Foundation has been renewing applications and signing up new schools to support Fluid Power Clubs on university campuses. The goal of this initiative is to get younger students introduced to and interested in fluid power, support club activities, and connect students to industry professionals to learn about careers in fluid power.

So far, these universities have active clubs on their campuses this year:

  1. Cleveland State University
  2. Iowa State University
  3. Milwaukee School of Engineering
  4. Murray State University
  5. North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University
  6. Northern Illinois University
  7. Ohio University
  8. Purdue University
  9. Purdue University Northwest
  10. University of Cincinnati
  11. West Virginia University Tech
  12. Western Michigan University

Universities like these are always looking for industry representatives and to speak to their students to guide them as they work on technical projects. There are many opportunities for NFPA members to get connected to local students. To get involved, please contact Stephanie Scaccianoce sscaccianoce@nfpa.com
