The Cognex on Campus grant program is providing engineering students with the opportunity to learn about machine vision technology. Each grant consists of a Cognex In-Sight vision sensor and related accessories. "After these students graduate college, they're going to be asked to solve real-world problems in the automation industry," says David Schatz, vice president of corporate development at Cognex. "Working with In-Sight provides them with the hands-on experience they'll need."
Any engineering school that teaches factory automation can apply for the grant. To date, 10 U.S. schools have received grants.
