Engineering Lab Opens at North Central College



North Central College recently celebrated the opening of a new laboratory in the Dr. Myron Wentz Science Center with a ceremonial ribbon cutting. The Omron Design and Automation Lab will give North Central College engineering students the opportunity to work with cutting-edge technologies currently used in industry while constructing their own working systems at the numerous workstations provided.

"Giving students access to today's most sophisticated technology is a core purpose of the Wentz Science Center, and the laboratory will play a key role to this effect," said a company spokesperson. The lab was built with funding from Omron Foundation, which coordinates the charitable efforts of the Omron companies in the U.S. Omron is a provider of automation technology and creative solutions for tackling society's challenges, and the Foundation supports engineering education as well as STEM initiatives throughout the K-12 education levels.

"Omron prides itself on its long-term focus, so it is our greatest pleasure to help educate the engineers who will solve tomorrow's challenges," said Nigel Blakeway, Chairman and CEO of Omron Management Center of America, Inc., and Omron Foundation President. "We are thrilled to be part of the development of such a future-oriented laboratory and to be able to guide students as they begin their engineering journey."

The Omron Foundation has also granted all North Central College faculty and students unlimited access to its E-learning modules, which are packed of information on core industry technologies such as vision, robotics, control, motion and safety. They will be an integral part of North Central College's new four-year Bachelor of Science degrees in computer, electrical and mechanical engineering beginning in the 2018-2019 academic year.
