Students and Faculty

                           The AIST StEEL
                           Scholarship                            provided the  opportunity to intern at California Steel Industries. I am immensely grateful to AIST for helping to shape me as an engineer. As I explore my career opportunities, my relationship with AIST and my internship have made the steel industry a likely possibility.
