Marc Giroux, Manufacturing Technology & Engineering, Corning Incorporated, Corning, NY

Corning Incorporated is the world leader in specialty glass and ceramics. Drawing on more than 160 years of materials science and process engineering knowledge, Corning creates and makes keystone components and materials that enable high-technology systems for consumer electronics, mobile emissions control, telecommunications and life sciences.  The company grows primarily by internal innovation and at the very core of this is a significant industrial R&D lab and engineering center in Corning, NY.

While the connection between glass & ceramics and Chemical Engineering may not at first be obvious, it is very real.  This talk will review some of the innovations which have been prominent in our history.  It will also cover some current innovations in more detail and highlight the impact Chemical Engineers have on them as well as the reverse: the impact one of them may have on Chemical Engineers.
