The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Nano@Wayne Seminar on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. at the Wayne State University Welcome Center Auditorium, 42 W. Warren, Detroit, MI 48201.   The guest presenter will be Jim Wuokila of DTE Energy. His talk is titled, "Science in Non-Scientific Industries." This is a special seminar that is a part of the newly established Nanoengineering Undergraduate Certificate Program. DTE Energy is an industrial partner of the program. All Wayne State University students are invited to attend. The seminar is free; registration is required. A reception will follow in the Welcome Center Lobby from 3:30-4:00 p.m. Abstract: Many industrial companies with a non-scientific product require a science-based  organization to support their processes and development.  Innovation, technical processes and environmental stewardship all are supported through scientific knowledge, analysis and investigation.  DTE Energy, like many of these industries, employs a scientific staff that is integral to their workforce. DTE Energy, with its Engineering Support Organization, employs hundreds of scientists and technicians dedicated to the maintenance and development of the technical aspects of the energy industry.  From fuel and environmental analysis to predictive monitoring, a scientific staff is essential to keeping the lights on and homes heated. DTE Energy partners not only with other industries but with academic institutions to share knowledge, develop hands-on skills and participate in the growth and improvement of our community.  As part of this, DTE Energy has partnered with the Nanoengineering section of the Chemical Engineering and Materials Science Department at Wayne State to create a co-op position dedicated to the development of projects of interest both to DTE and WSU.  The student in this position works closely both with the Department as well DTE to advance and investigate the goals of both.
