John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center
The John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center is focused on advanced manufacturing technologies and a cross-curricular approach to manufacturing concepts that will provide hands-on, interdisciplinary learning opportunities in a factory environment and collaborate with industry to:
(1) Modernize traditional manufacturing technologies.
(2) Advance and create new high-efficiency, state-of-the-art materials and technologies.
(3) Address the skills gap in US manufacturing.
(4) Serve as a conduit for students and industry to the next-generation of manufacturing technologies.
The Center is the result of a gift from Whelen Engineering in honor of its longtime president, the late John Olson, the benefactor of one of CEPS' most generous need-based endowments, as well as a campuswide emergency notification system. Research work related to the Olson Center is supported by UNH’s Center for Advanced Materials and Manufacturing Innovation.
