Our first virtual TechTopics event is coming up! The event is on Wednesday, July 29 at 11 a.m. via Zoom. Our speakers are Rebekah Sweat, PhD and Tarik Dickens, PhD from the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering.


They will be discussing their research in composite materials interfaces. The research focuses on 3D printing of sensors and bonding of materials. These important elements can be combined to monitor damage detection in places like airplanes, smart bridges and in-space manufacturing.


To register for the event, email Naomi Molina, Director of Marketing & Engagement at We hope to “see” you there!
