Normandale Receives Funding For New Engineering Equipment

Stocks in this article: DCI

Normandale Community College received equipment for its Engineering program that will support education and workplace training for high-demand occupations through state appropriation, and private funding from Donaldson Company and the Normandale Foundation.

Through state appropriation and private funding, the Engineering Department received computerized numeric control (CNC) equipment, a 3D scanner and printer, laser engraver and cutter, and an exhaust system for its Fabrication Laboratory.

Overall, the cost of the equipment was $62,563. The Legislative Leveraged Equipment Fund, which the state appropriated for 15 different schools in the MnSCU system, provided $29,291 toward the purchase of the equipment. The contributions of $33,272 from the Donaldson Foundation and the Normandale Foundation combined with the state appropriation allowed the college to receive this state of the art equipment.

“Normandale consistently strives to provide resources for our students that will directly translate into valuable workforce experiences,” said Normandale Community College President Joe Opatz. “I would like to thank Governor Mark Dayton, the legislature, Donaldson Foundation and Normandale’s Foundation for providing the resources to enhance the education of our engineering students, the Twin Cities Engineering program and the middle school students who attend our summer STEM camps. Through their generosity, we will have the quality equipment to educate successful engineers of the future at a high level in the Twin Cities.”

The equipment allows for greater educational opportunities and access for a variety of engineering students that attend Normandale during the year. This includes Normandale’s engineering students, the Twin Cities Engineering program and middle school girls who annually attend the college’s summer STEM camp to increase their knowledge.

“Normandale Community College and their programs align well with our Foundation’s mission of supporting education,” said Jessica Exley, President of the Donaldson Foundation. “We applaud Normandale’s commitment to expanding their quality STEM-based curriculum. Having advanced equipment and superior learning experiences are necessary to effectively prepare the next generation of innovators to work at technical companies such as Donaldson.”
