Wisconsin is a state that makes things. Manufacturing is one of our largest industries, employing hundreds of thousands of people. Among them are engineers, the people who design products and the equipment needed to manufacture them. Today, that process often involves looking at ways of RE-manufacturing products rather than starting from scratch.

Our guest on today’s program is Wilkistar Otieno, a UWM associate professor of industrial and manufacturing engineering who believes sustainability has an important place in American factories.

Tom Luljak hosted UWM Today on WUWM for more than two decades and is the inaugural host of Curious Campus.
