Ford to showcase latest in cars, careers, technology and more at Ford Day 2016

If you are a Wayne State student interested in a career at Ford Motor Company – or even if you are just interested in the latest in mobility and wireless technology – you will not want to miss Ford Day at WSU on Friday, Oct. 28. Students with interests in business, design, marketing, engineering, public relations or related fields are encouraged to attend. 

Ford Day activities will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the WSU College of Engineering Building. In addition to giving students the opportunity to meet with Ford recruiters in purchasing, finance, engineering, manufacturing, information technology and more, the event will feature a keynote address by WSU alumnus and Ford Group Vice President of Communications Ray Day and four “TED-style” presentations, including:

  • Eric Wingfield, Ford Mobility Strategist
  • Eric James, Ford North America Manufacturing Human Resources Manager: “Careers at Ford”
  • Sally Roberts, WSU GO-GIRL Program
  • Hongwei Zhang, WSU College of Engineering: “Wireless Detroit”

“Ford and Wayne State have a long history of working together,” said Matthew Seeger, dean of the College of Fine, Performing & Communication Arts and the program’s moderator. “Ford Day is our chance to celebrate the relationship and showcase some of the great things these two institutions are doing.”

Ford vehicles will be on display, and refreshments and giveaways will also be available. The event is free and open to all WSU students, faculty and staff, but registration is required at
