Mississippi State University CAVS Extension's capabilities are driven by the needs of the automotive industry. Resulting capabilities are leveraged to benefit other manufacturing industries throughout the state. This is accomplished in a variety of ways including on-site engineering support and professional development training. Our goal is to introduce best practices and emerging technologies which enable Mississippi Manufacturers to compete successfully in global markets.
"The Center's goal is jobs, more jobs, safer jobs, higher paying jobs... We envision Mississippi as the hub of a new automotive manufacturing corridor stretching across much of the south... We're committed to advancing technologies and practices so that Mississippi industries can compete successfully in a global market."
