Machinery Manufacturer Norwalt Continues to Invest in Career Path Program for Aspiring College Students
Company’s ‘Collegiate Automation Program’ helps prepare students for careers in machine design and manufacturing.
Norwalt, a specialist in custom-built automation and line integration machinery for complex manufacturing applications, continues to expand on its immersive education program for college students interested in careers in machine design, manufacturing, and other automation-adjacent niches. The company’s Collegiate Automation Program (CAP) forges partnerships with the University of Delaware and other colleges to give aspiring students real-life experiences that bolster their learning in the classroom.
For example, at the University of Delaware, Norwalt is assisting with facets of the school’s engineering curriculum, and providing funding for hands-on junior- and senior-level projects that complement classroom instruction. Norwalt also offers internship programs, and conducts recruitment seminars offering opportunities to join its machine design team. Financial donations and close collaboration with the school’s education administrators round out Norwalt’s CAP program.
In recent years, Norwalt has also reached out to the County College of Morris, and several other community colleges with machinery component donations, helping these educational facilities maintain equipment vital for comprehensive student instruction.
With facilities in Randolph, New Jersey and Tampa, Florida, Norwalt is a supplier of concept-to-completion manufacturing equipment solutions. The company’s engineers design, construct, validate and install premium production equipment whose functionalities include – but are by no means limited to – packaging and product assembly, post-mold automation, modular automation cells and robotics systems. Norwalt serves customers in a wide array of sectors, from medical devices and food & beverage applications to personal care and household items.
“It is highly rewarding to have the opportunity to nurture and mentor the machine designers and engineers of tomorrow,” said Mike Seitel President at Norwalt. “Our partnership with the University of Delaware is already showing tremendous promise, as we strive to provide real-life machining experience that positively influences the overall education process. Supplementing classroom instruction with hands-on scenarios is vital is a field such as ours, and we’re grateful to do our part.”
