The Second Annual National Manufacturing Day is scheduled for Friday, October 4, 2013 and this year it will take place in the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies Auditorium, Gallery and Atrium. The event falls on Rensselaer’s Alumni Weekend, therefore we have planned to include and celebrate Rensselaer Champions of Manufacturing.
