Professors Richard E. DeVor and Shiv G. Kapoor have collectively committed
nearly 70 years to advancing the science and engineering of manufacturing.



This first Manufacturing Leadership symposium is devoted to honoring their contributions to areas such as:

  • Statistical Methods and Quality Engineering
  • Modeling of Machining Processes
  • Environmental Issues in Manufacturing
  • Micro-Manufacturing and Machine Tools

A one-day Symposium is planned to provide both a retrospective look at the work of Professors DeVor and Kapoor, and discuss visions for the future of manufacturing. The Symposium provides a unique opportunity for students and colleagues of Professors DeVor and Kapoor to convene and share their experiences, perspectives, and current/planned activities.
