Omega Engineering, Inc., an international company with U.S. headquarters in Norwalk, Connecticut, is making a generous donation of products valued at close to $2 million to benefit UB’s engineering laboratories, physical sciences departments, and outreach STEM programming.
UB’s engineering and science faculty and students are very excited to receive the products, which are used for temperature, pressure, flow and level measurements. The opportunity to have hands-on experience with these commercial products and incorporate them into the experimentation process enhances UB students’ education and readies them for a smooth transition on their career paths.
As Tarek M. Sobh, Ph.D., Senior Vice President for Graduate Studies and Research and Dean of the School of Engineering, explains, “Omega Engineering has been a valuable partner for UB for the last 15 years. Our collaboration has already inspired a generation of engineers and scientists who have graduated from our programs and were extensively trained on the usage of state-of-the-art equipment from Omega Engineering in our laboratories, research centers, and classrooms.
We are very grateful for Omega Engineering’s continued contribution to our instructional efforts with their generous donation. As we grow our STEM outreach efforts and emphasize our technology footprint on campus and across the region, this donation could not have come at a more opportune time.”
Omega Engineering, Inc. is one of four business segments of Spectris, a UK-based company with offices in more than 30 countries.
