Industry Day at the March Meeting 2019, Boston, MA

Industry Day

This year’s Industry Day theme, “Physics for Tomorrow,” highlights the many ways that technology developed by physicists shapes our daily lives. Industrial physicists in many different sectors of the economy advance technology through modeling and designing experiments, developing new materials and instruments, and improving and maintaining processes that ensure product quality.

Speakers from a wide range of technical fields will share their experiences including how training in physics prepared them for the jobs they have now. Join your colleagues and expand your view of the exciting work undertaken by physicists in many different industrial fields.
