Key Professor
The name of the Key Professor in the Cast Metal Program at each FEF school is in Bold Face. If there is any question about the program in regard to Full-Time, Summer and Co-Op workers, or research development and consulting, the Key Professor should be contacted. The Key Professor at each school can provide you with their requirements.
Director of Placement
The individual who has the major responsibility for student employment opportunities is identified as such. This person will arrange appointments and assist in scheduling recruiting visits to the campus.
Advisory Committee
The Industrial Advisory Committee is crucial at every FEF school. This committee helps relate the concerns of our Industry, as well as providing equipment, supplies, speakers, plant tours of local companies, etc. To serve on this committee at the FEF certified school in your area, please contact the Key Professor or FEF office.
