Newton, MA--Automated Solutions Int'l is supporting the Design News Engineering Education Foundation with a $10,000 grant. This gift marks the company's first contribution to the program, which benefits engineering students at the university level.
Simultaneously, ASI has also announced that beginning the fall quarter/semester of 1999 it will provide three, $3,000 Industrial Automation scholarships to university/college-level students. Eligible recipients must be seniors participating in mechanical or electrical engineering programs and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4-point scale. More information can be found at www.AutomationSolutions.com.
Both the scholarship and grant are part of ASI's continued effort to improve education in the engineering industry. "We want to make sure that future engineers who are interested in high technology/machine automation have the opportunity to focus on their formal education, rather than worrying about how to fund it," says CEO Scott Johnson.
ASI is an amalgamation of engineering firms engaged in applying a variety of machine control technologies. The companies work together by assisting their customers with the identification, selection, procurement, application, and operation of high-tech components used to automate machinery.
"At ASI we recognize that high-quality engineers are the only option for keeping pace with the increasing demands for cost-effective and high-technology solutions required in today's competitive marketplace," says Johnson.
While most ASI members and affiliates are rooted in motion control, the company also offers other major elements of the machine automation solution. These include intelligent sensors, programmable logic controllers, industrial computers, vision systems, mechanical components, human machine interfaces, safety equipment, and related services.
ASI's products are used in producing aircraft, semiconductors, tennis balls, automobiles, locomotives, disk drives, and motion pictures such as Titanic, where ASI designed controls used to produce many of the special effects.
