NFPA Launches Power Partner Program

NFPA has launched its new Power Partner program, an annual recognition program designed to showcase a university that actively participates in all NFPA fluid power educational programs. With the help of NFPA members, resources for university faculty have been developed to support fluid power education growth at their institutions.

The major objective for this program is to increase the amount of fluid power being taught in university mechanical engineering degree programs and to enhance faculty to industry connections. The program will also help support, recognize and promote its educator partners to the NFPA membership.

To be considered as a Power Partner, the university must:

With this recognition, NFPA will:

  • Promote the university’s fluid power programs and initiatives to all 330+ NFPA members through the website and featured articles within the NFPA web community
  • Help connect its members to the university’s “Meet the Students” event where students learn about careers in fluid power and meet face-to-face with industry executives and HR professionals
  • Provide complimentary registrations for two university faculty members to attend both the NFPA Annual Meeting and the IEOC

All of these programs come with either financial, educational or staff support from NFPA.

Please promote the Power Partner program to the universities that you work with and stay tuned for our “Meet the Students” event. It will be a great recruitment opportunity for your company. If you have any questions, please contact Amy Zignego at azignego@nfpa.com.
