Wichita State Innovation Campus
Data-Driven Technologies Prepares Future Generations for the Smart Factory of the Future
Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence and the Wichita State University Innovation Campus have entered into a technology partnership agreement extending a five-year partnership with WSU’s National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR). To date, NIAR and Hexagon have cooperatively developed an automated scanning solution for customer applications, and hosted technology workshops plus training events.
Hexagon will employ full-time staff at the WSU campus to facilitate research and development, and support their local customer base. The company will also introduce an internship program for the Midwestern states. Students will have access to state-of-the-art industrial metrology software and systems, which will help lead to job placement opportunities in manufacturing. Hexagon is the third global partner to join the Wichita State’s Innovation Campus, following Airbus and Dassault Systèmes.
