Automated Manufacturing, Machining Scholarship Established

Faculty members in the School of Industrial and Engineering Technologies at Pennsylvania College of Technology have established the Automated Manufacturing and Machining Scholarship.

The scholarship will benefit full-time students who are enrolled in either manufacturing engineering technology, automated manufacturing technology or machine tool technology; have completed two semesters of study; and have a GPA of 3.0 or better. Awards will begin in 2013-14 while the scholarship builds toward endowment.

“The Penn College Foundation is appreciative of the generosity of the faculty in the automated manufacturing and machining department,” said Robb Dietrich, executive director of the foundation. “This scholarship will provide financial assistance to students who have demonstrated an ability to excel within their chosen program of study.”

“We have many students who are bright and enthusiastic,” said Tom Livingstone, associate professor of machine tool technology/automated manufacturing. “Every semester, we believe it is fitting to honor one who exemplifies dedication to the manufacturing trades, good work ethic and willingness to help others.”
