NFPA Members Connect with University Students

The National Fluid Power Society’s workforce programs help increase the number of technical college and university students educated in fluid power and connect them to careers in the fluid power industry. The NFPA Speakers Bureau  does this by connecting NFPA members to fluid power and mechanical engineering university classrooms.

Participating NFPA members can visit or teleconference with a local university to talk to students, especially those in mechanical engineering programs, about fluid power and the career possibilities in the industry. Preparing for a presentation is easy – NFPA can provide a draft presentation template and other resources. NFPA also works with the speaker and the university to help coordinate the visit.

The following Speakers Bureau events took place in 2019-20:

  • Deltrol Fluid Power Products at Purdue University Northwest
  • Festo Corporation at Stony Brook University
  • FORCE America at Milwaukee School of Engineering
  • Iowa Fluid Power at Iowa State University
  • Kaman Fluid Power at Purdue University
  • Parker Hannifin at Ohio University
  • Parker Hannifin at University of Cincinnati
  • Womack at Oklahoma State University

Efforts like the Speakers Bureau not only make more students aware of and excited about careers in fluid power, they can also make recruitment easier for the companies involved.
