Congresos MESIC

El Manufacturing Engineering Society International Conference (MESIC) es un congreso nacido al amparo de la Sociedad de Ingeniería de Fabricación, para cumplir con uno de sus objetivos fundacionales: la creación de foros de intercambio de experiencias en el campo de la Ingeniería de Fabricación.

ejemplo mesic 2011 (640 x 480)Este evento se celebra bianualmente y posee carácter internacional, habiéndose realizado su primera edición (con el nombre de Primer Congreso Internacional de la Sociedad de Ingeniería de Fabricación, CISIF-MESIC’05), en Calatayud, en septiembre del 2005. Sedes posteriores de este congreso han sido Madrid (2007), Alcoy (2009), Cádiz (2011), Zaragoza (2013),  Barcelona  (2015), Vigo (2017), Madrid (2019)  y Gijón (2021).
