CREOL appears in ACerS bulletin for hosting first American Ceramic Society Winter Workshop

CREOL appears in the March 2016 issue of the ACerS bulletin for hosting the first American Ceramic Society Winter Workshop.

Winter Workshop creates learning, networking opportunities for global young professionals ACerS first-ever Winter Workshop brought students and young professionals to Florida on January 22–25, 2016. The workshop combined technical and professional development sessions and a trip to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, nestled in between participation in two technical conferences— Electronic Materials and Applications 2016 and 40th International Conference and Expo on Advanced Ceramics and Composites.

After getting started on the momentum of EMA’s concluding day, workshop attendees traveled to the University of
Central Florida’s CREOL College of Optics, where they heard expert presentations on advanced characterization, toured
optics and photonics research labs, and participated in professional development sessions. Professionals provided early
career guidance on topics including advice on how to perfect the elevator pitch and some thoughts on how to use—and not
use—social media to promote a professional identity. Attendees had ample opportunities to network with professionals
in academia and industry and with peers, providing a rich experience for students and post-docs to learn, engage, and build their professional paths.
