Omron donates new design and robotics laboratory to help UH engineering students gain real-world skills

At the lab’s opening ceremony, UH faculty and Omron representatives looked at a variety of senior capstone projects, including a sorting robot and a mobile robotic billboard. The lab contains an area dedicated to senior design projects, which provides real world design experience, which is helpful for gaining employment after graduation.

Prospective employers will expect them to speak intelligently about what they worked on for their design project so the experience they gain at this stage is very important. This makes our graduates very marketable because these are skills companies want. We’re grateful to Omron for making this possible.”

Len Trombetta, the Associate Department Chair

Omron Automation Americas President, CEO and COO Robb Black described the importance of preparing today’s students for the latest challenges in engineering and manufacturing.

We want to bring the skills they have learned in school into the manufacturing sector. I think it’s a great way for students to learn real-world technology and apply it once they leave.”

Omron Automation Americas President, CEO and COO Robb Black
