Omron Foundation Supports UM-Dearborn Engineering Students with $1M Gift and Scholarship



Omron Foundation has announced a gift of $1 million to the University of Michigan-Dearborn for the establishment of a new laboratory inside the university's Engineering Lab Building (ELB), a $90 million project expected to be complete in 2020. The new Omron Robotics and Human Factors Lab will be an addition to the state-of-the-art building that will provide UM-Dearborn students with a comprehensive, 21st-century engineering education.

Omron Foundation coordinates the charitable efforts of all U.S.-based offices of the Omron Corporation.

"The university's new ELB will transform engineering education by combining innovative teaching labs with modern classrooms to cultivate entrepreneurial problem-solving skills as well as technological expertise. Students will benefit from a multidisciplinary approach in an environment rich in collaboration and project-based learning. Cutting-edge labs will let students explore real-world applications in power engineering, robotics, bioengineering, cybersecurity and more," said a company spokesperson.

"Through Omron Foundation, we are delighted to have the opportunity to support this amazing innovation investment at University of Michigan-Dearborn. At Omron, we continue to make revolutionary new developments in human robotics harmonization. With the vision and talented research teams ever evolving at UM-Dearborn, we are committed to not just this engineering lab, but the scholarship programs to support future generations of engineers, fortunate enough to study in this impressive new environment," said Nigel Blakeway, Omron Americas Corporation CEO and Omron Foundation President.

Daniel Little, Chancellor of the University of Michigan-Dearborn, said, "Their support is key to this transformative project which will advance our academic programs and expand our capacity for premier research and industry partnerships."

"Students will be learning the most advanced robotic technologies to further their problem-solving abilities," said Robb Black, President and CEO of Omron Automation Americas.

In addition to the $1M gift, the Omron Foundation also announced a new scholarship for UM-Dearborn electrical engineering students. This is the Omron Foundation's eighth endowed scholarship in electrical engineering with prior endowments established at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Kettering University, Northern Illinois University, Northwestern University, Southern Illinois University, University of Houston and the University of Illinois at Champaign.
