Making Medallions at MIT

June 6, 2017

While MIT seniors are preparing to receive their diplomas, DMSE seniors are preparing to receive an additional graduation gift.

Each year, the Department of Materials Science and Engineering gives its graduating students a bronze medallion of the MIT seal. These medallions are entirely prepared, cast, and finished by students in the Merton C. Flemings Materials Processing Laboratory using the lost-wax/investment casting process. All are welcome, no experience necessary.
