Connecting People. Crafting Industry.

CAWP Co-op Night

The Centre for Advanced Wood Processing will be holding an Open House on Thursday October 7th from 1pm to 5pm, followed by the Co-op Presentation Evening from 6-9pm.  Anyone connected with or interested in the wood products sector is enthusiastically welcomed to attend these events.

The Open House will run from 1pm to 5pm with various short technical seminars and hands-on demonstrations to inform you about new developments in machinery, software, equipment and supplies related to advanced wood products manufacturing. We’ll be providing productivity tips and sharing information that will help manufacturers increase competitiveness. We will also have information on training and technical assistance programs available to the industry. Tours of CAWP will be run on the half-hour, led by student volunteers, and we’ll be showcasing some of the research and industry projects that are carried out in the building.

In the evening we will be holding our Co-op Presentation Evening from 6pm to 9pm. This is a great opportunity to find out about the projects that students from our B.SC. Wood Products Processing program carried out during their summer co-op work terms and what they could do for your organization. The evening includes a networking opportunity to meet our current co-op students in all years of the program and is always popular with industry visitors who may be considering to hire a student or graduate for either short-term work placements or permanent positions.

There is no charge to attend either the Open House or Co-op Presentations, and a light buffet meal will be available at 5pm. A complete schedule for the Open House event will be announced at the beginning of September. To RSVP or request more information, please contact CAWP.  Please mention in the RSVP whether you will attend the Open House (afternoon) session, the Co-op (evening) session, or both.

Thanks and have a great summer. We look forward to hearing from you.
