MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – Penn State Harrisburg’s School of Science, Engineering and Technology will present a Lightning Round Seminar Series to promote research and discovery and grow collaborations among faculty. Multiple presentations are planned throughout the spring in the Educational Activities Building (Room 102) on campus and via webinar at psu.zoom.us/j/91782813316.
“We hope these presentations will spark collaborative research ideas across the school, as well as the college and entire University,” said Vahid Motevalli director of the School of Science, Engineering, and Technology. “In addition, it will be an opportunity for our students to learn about the cutting-edge scholarship taking place here. Finally, these seminars will provide an opportunity for industry to have a glimpse into the rich and diverse intellectual asset that our campus provides for the community, the commonwealth, and beyond.”
