On April 2nd, 2020, Purdue University will host a Fluid Power Careers Information Session where students will hear from industry members about their companies, career opportunities and more.

The goal of the event is to spark interest in fluid power careers and your company among Purdue University students of all grade levels. Each company in attendance will be offered a booth as well as the opportunity to present to the students. For companies that regularly attend Purdue University’s Fall Career Fair, this is a great opportunity to create awareness for students who will be looking to lock in their first career before graduating.

In recognition of Purdue’s efforts to promote fluid power education, they will be named NFPA’s first Power Partner University.

Purdue has met all of the criteria for the program, including:

If your company would like to attend, please RSVP by January 31st to Lynn Beyer: lbeyer@nfpa.com or (414) 778-3364.
