  • University of Wisconsin – Madison
  • Michigan Technological University
  • Milwaukee School of Engineering

If you are looking to get involved with these Fluid Power Clubs, see below for several ways for your company to engage.

  • Speak with a Fluid Power Club about the industry and your company.
  • Mentor a Fluid Power Club – Help to provide a project that the students can work on and guide them through the work.
  • Provide ideas to our Activity List that we share with all clubs.
  • Help supply components and materials for students to work on projects.

Additionally, Texas A&M University’s student chapter of Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) is hosting an Engineering Technology Career Fair on December 4th. This will be a good way to recruit Engineering Technology students (MMET, ESET, MXET). These students make good hands-on engineers for design, manufacturing, robotics, electronics, testing, and more.
