The School of Polymers and High Performance Materials along with Anton Paar USA, manufacturer of high-quality rheometers and other measuring and analysis instruments for research and industry, hosted a rheology workshop for research scientists, technical experts, engineers, system users, safety managers and standards setters to hear the most recent activities in areas of rheology and industrial application of rheology. More than 30 people attended the free, two-day workshop. The workshop was judged to be hugely successful by the participants by exposing our USM students and those who came from outside campus to modern techniques, enhancing their skill set as well as innovation in Mississippi.
