DENSO Foundation's 2017



Supporting the communities DENSO serves and provides resources for the next generation of technical workers to succeed are core to DENSO's success. To fulfill these promises, DENSO's philanthropic arm - the DENSO North America Foundation (DNAF) - funds programs across the continent each year providing hands-on learning opportunities in areas from robotics and thermodynamics to design and materials development.

In May 2017, the DNAF board confirmed its 2017 college and university grants: nearly $1 million in overall funding for 22 institutions and educational programs across North America.

"Innovation throughout the manufacturing industry will continue to produce more growth opportunities for students in skilled trades and technical fields," said Doug Patton, President of DNAF and Executive Vice President of Engineering at DENSO International America, Inc. "Companies will lean on this young workforce for years to come, and in order to succeed we need to empower students by giving a better sense for what they will experience in the workplace."

"The automotive industry relies more and more on those with expertise in fields like robotics, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering," said David Cole, DNAF board member. "Supporting STEM education enables DENSO to develop the next generation of talent needed to fill these roles. It also helps students find ways to translate their passion and skills into opportunity after graduation."

Since 2001, the DNAF has advanced the auto industry through grants to colleges and universities, providing students with technology, tools and experiences similar to those of the professional workplace they will experience after graduation. The proposal process for these education grants is invite only, and all proposals are evaluated based on technical merit, student experience and alignment with industry needs.

This year's grant recipients include:

  • Arkansas Northeastern College
  • Arkansas State University
  • California State University Long Beach
  • Cleveland State Community College
  • CONALEP Technical College
  • Conestoga College
  • East Tennessee State University
  • FIME - Mechanical and Electrical Engineer College
  • Kettering University
  • Lawrence Technological University
  • Michigan State University
  • Michigan Technological University
  • North Carolina State University
  • Northeast State Community College
  • Oakland University
  • Tennessee Technological University
  • Trine University
