UHD Students Tour Siemens Facility to Learn About Automation Systems

A group of UHD engineering technology and Scholars Academy students attended a field trip to a Siemens facility last week and toured a range of Siemens automation and drive product lines. Brian Pounds, Siemens regional sales director, advised the students on preparing for successful engineering careers, and other Siemens leaders gave actual demonstrations on automation products and systems. The field trip provided students with a valuable opportunity to learn about Siemens, a major industry donor to UHD's Control and Instrumentation Engineering Technology program and a leading Automation manufacturer. Students also learned about the company's role in a wide range of industrial sectors and medical instrumentation fields.
