SME Conference


What’s It All About?

Manufacturing and product design are changing at an astounding rate. Nowhere is the speed more evident than in the Silicon Valley. The impact of the Internet of Things (IoT), 3D printing, and robotics is huge, and we are just at the beginning. The influence of the digital revolution is impacting our daily lives as well as a myriad of industries.

  • IoT provides the link between data and devices to the Internet that can provide instant feedback.
  • Integrated software tools, 3D printing, and robotics have continued to develop and merge together.

You are invited to attend a one-day SME annual conference on Transforming the Future – IoT, 3D Printing, and Robotics.

  • Enjoy interactive 3D Printing, laser, and robotics demonstrations.
  • Explore opportunities for career development, and attend our Career Fair.

This conference is held in collaboration with the Design-2-Part Show with the SME North Bay and SME Sacramento chapters. Other local organizations that support SME include ASME-SCVS, ASQ Northern CA Biomedical Division, Bio2Device Group, IIE SV/BA, SJSU BMES, SWE-SCV, SVEC, San Jose State University, Laney College, and DeAnza College.
