After WWII ended, there was a desparate need for skilled technicians and educated leaders in the cast metals industry. FEF was established in 1947 by the leaders of the metal casting industry, with the support of affiliated organizations and societies as an independent extension of metalcasting educational programs at colleges and universities across the country. The primary objective was to bring top-quality men and women into our industry. FEF has since become the lifeline of quality people to our Industry.
FEF has survived the test of time, providing the industry with a steady supply of technical and management-oriented people. Indeed, the single largest factor for the transfer of new technology into the work place has been FEF graduates. Over the last 4 school years, 76.8% of all graduating students who registered with FEF and reported full-time employment, took a position in the metal casting industry (data as of 1/13/12). In addition, many other students are exposed to the Cast Metals Industry, its products, designs, and quality engineered components. Also, research at FEF schools has become the core of important accomplishments and developments in Cast Metals. FEF provides its company contributors with a crucial link to college campuses.
