Purdue University’s Maha Fluid Power Research Center holds its 2022 Maha Fluid Power Conference May 17-19 at the university campus in West Lafayette, Indiana.
The conference program includes technical presentations, keynote lectures, and a half-day optional hands-on workshop.
The conference features technical presentations by speakers from academia and invited industries. Keynote talks are given by Juergen Weber of TU Dresden and Katharina Schmitz of RWTH Aachen. The program covers topics such as high-efficiency fluid power systems, new hydraulic components, tribology, motion control, electrification, natural gas engines, soft robotics, and autonomous vehicles.
The National Fluid Power Association’s University Power Partner Program offers opportunities for NFPA members to connect with students looking to enter the fluid power industry. The program showcases universities that actively participate in NFPA fluid power educational programs, and Purdue is NFPA’s inaugural Power Partner. As a result, on May 19, NFPA members are invited to attend a student recruiting event to showcase their company, highlight internships and job opportunities, and network with students. Students enrolled in Purdue’s colleges of engineering, agriculture, and technology will be invited. There is no fee to participate in the recruitment event.
The deadline to register for the recruitment event is May 13. Interested companies can register for early-bird pricing by April 15.
