IME Automation Laboratory Receives Equipment Donations
The IME Department has received major equipment donations from distinguished alumni to upgrade its Automation Laboratory. The equipment donations include an ABB 5-axis robot system with accessories such as two belt conveyor systems, controllers, and sensors from Mr. Jeff Bigger, CEO and President of Massman Automation Designs LLC; six PPT machine vision systems and a DataLogic vision sensor from Mr. Bob Heller, President of Heller Capital, Inc. and former CEO of PPT Vision, Inc.
According to Dr. Jing Shi, associate professor and supervisor of IME Automation Laboratory who is instrumental in securing the donations, the newly added equipment greatly enhances the instructional capability of the laboratory and enables the department to teach state-of-the-art industrial automation technologies, and alleviates the scheduling problem of offering concurrent lab instruction sessions.
"The Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering Department is very pleased with the enhancement of our automation laboratory through donations from our alumni. The equipment received will greatly help modernize our programs in industrial and manufacturing engineering," said Canan Bilen-Green, professor and interim chair.
STEM Occupations Student Loan Program
The STEM Occupations Student Loan Program is intended to reduce student loan indebtedness for North Dakota graduates who work in STEM-related fields in North Dakota.
Amount: Eligible graduates receive up to $1,500 per year in student loan forgiveness for each year they are employed in North Dakota in an approved occupation. Benefits are capped at $6,000.
Who is eligible: Recipients include North Dakota college graduates who earned cumulative GPAs of 2.5 or higher and who have been employed in a board-approved STEM occupation for 12 months. Loans must have been from the Bank of North Dakota or other participating lender. Recipients may reapply each year for up to 48 months. The number of loan reductions is contingent upon legislative appropriations, so not all qualified applicants are assured funding. The 2013 STEM application will be available mid-April 2013.
