The Fluid Power Technology Conference brings together fluid power industry professionals and academics for two full days of in-depth programming including keynote sessions, industry panels, hands-on technology demonstrations, and networking sessions.
Connecting women in fluid power: Throughout the 2017 edition of the FPTC, one theme resounded over and over again — the need to get more women into engineering and, specifically, into fluid power. Join several leading women from difference aspects of fluid power as they discuss why this predominantly male industry has been tough to break into and how we can, and should, make changes to the status quo. Moderated by Fluid Power World’s Managing Editor Mary Gannon, the panel of innovators will include educators, executives, distributors and manufacturers. Panelists scheduled to appear include Dr. H.C. Monika Ivantysynova, Maha Professor Fluid Power Systems and Director of the Maha Fluid Power Research Center at Purdue; Rachel Schmidt, Sales Application Engineer with Elwood Fluid Power; and more.
