President Obama To Address U.S. from Carnegie Mellon University


President Barack Obama will address the U.S. from Carnegie Mellon University’s Pittsburgh campus June 24 — a live stream of the event will be available on this page.

The president will be highlighting the importance of manufacturing to the U.S. economy, as well as key steps that government, industry and universities will take together to create new industries and new jobs. He will deliver remarks on the need to focus on cross-cutting technologies that will enhance the global competitiveness of U.S. manufacturing and speed up ideas from the drawing board to the manufacturing floor.

The visit will take place at Carnegie Mellon University’s National Robotics Engineering Center (NREC), where he will see a range of cutting-edge technologies that have the potential to transform and assist the manufacturing sector, from crowd-sourced vehicles and next-generation robots, to modeling and simulation.

The visit comes on the heels of CMU’s recently launched Greenlighting Startups — an initiative aimed at accelerating the university’s already impressive record of turning campus innovations into sustainable new businesses.

This is President Obama’s third trip to the university. Note: Attendance is by invitation only, but please join us live online.
