Marquette University and Omron Automation Americas unveiled this week the Omron Advanced Automation Lab at Engineering Hall on the MU campus.

The Omron Advanced Automation Lab was announced in June 2022 with Omron Automation Americas gifting the university more than $1 million to establish the lab, support the mechanical engineering graduate program and endow a scholarship.

“The students who come through this lab will be learning on the most advanced automation and robotics equipment in the industry,” said Robb Black, president, chief executive officer and chief operating officer of Omron Automation Americas, who graduated from Marquette’s Opus College of Engineering in 1987. “I’m very happy to say that today we have one Marquette grad in our Sakura Training Program (at Omron), three additional students starting the program in June, and two students in the Omron and Marquette Co-Op Program.”
