The Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP) invites you to the Industry-University Summit at Texas A&M University to meet one-on-one with faculty and students and network with industry colleagues. The  Summit is a bi-annual meeting that connects university researchers with industry practitioners to mutually advance fluid power technology.

Summit attendees learn about fluid power research progress through CCEFP initiatives, join tours of fluid power teaching and research laboratories, and network during social events and activities. Among other institutional highlights, Texas A&M will feature the Bosch Rexroth-R.C. Womack Fluid Power Laboratory. All industry guests are invited to participate in the CCEFP sustainability planning and technology roadmapping meeting scheduled for Thursday, April 6.
