KUKA Robotics Selected for New Master's Program

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—April 16, 2007— KUKA Robotics Corporation, a leading global manufacturer of industrial robots, today announced it has been selected by Lawrence Technological University of Southfield, Michigan, to provide robots for its master of science in Mechatronic Systems Engineering (MSMSE) degree program, the first of its kind in the United States.

KUKA KR3 robots and KUKA Sim Pro simulation software will be the centerpiece of the university's new laboratory created for the program where students will be learning robotics programming and application simulation. The university plans a campus open house April 28th from 11am to 4pm at which attendees can tour the new lab and learn about the new program.

"The mechatronics degree is very popular in Europe and Asia, and Lawrence Tech saw the need for a similar offering here in the U.S. With the KUKA products we can offer a truly hands on real world learning experience," said Dr. Vladimir Vantsevich, professor of mechanical engineering and director of the new master of science degree program in Mechatronic Systems Engineering at Lawrence Tech.

"The need for robotic engineering expertise will increase exponentially as technology advances, and quality programs such as Lawrence Tech's mechatronic systems master's program will play an important role," said Stu Shepherd, president of KUKA Robotics Corporation. "We are very proud to be a participant in this very important and much-needed offering."

The KUKA KR3 three kilogram robots are being used in graduate-level courses including Analytical and Adaptive Dynamics, Mechanical Design of Mechatronics Systems/Robots, Mechatronic Systems Implementation, and Adaptive Control and also in the undergraduate Introduction to Mechatronics course. The program web site and program brochures can be found at: http://www.ltu.edu/engineering/mechanical/mechatronics.asp
