Kansas State Bulk Solids Innovation Center

Education and Training

The Bulk Solids Innovation Center provides industry focused short courses to further industry and employee education. Topics covered include powder and bulk solids handling, storage, conveying, and material properties. In person courses are hosted at the Bulk Solids Innovation Center and combine a robust discussion of theory and practical hands-on experimentation in the BSIC lab facilities. Online courses take the same mix of theory and practical demonstrations and are offered in a fully virtual environment. The BSIC also is available to work with your company to develop customized, on-site training solutions tailored to your company’s needs.

Upcoming courses are listed below. Courses are coordinated by the Professional Education and Outreach department at the Kansas State University Polytechnic Campus.
