Manufacturing Automation features MACC

The MACC model for Industry-Academia collaboration was recently recognized in a feature article in Manufacturing Automation. The article highlights the collaboration between MACC member company Dofasco, professor Chris Swartz's research group and how the relationship has been beneficial to the company, researchers, and students.

The article describes some of the benefits to companies, including access to process systems expertise, innovative ideas, and cutting-edge research. The students, on the other hand, benefit from interactions with industry sponsors, on-site training and experiences, and in many cases, employment in MACC member companies after graduation. In addition, the article describes how the MACC model has led to the formation of new companies, the creation of jobs, and a significant impact on the industry.
