ATMAE

ATMAE is the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering and is the national student organization for Industrial Technology students. The future focus of the organization is geared toward engineering and manufacturing in an industrial and/or business environment. Dr. John Wyatt, Mr. Mickey Giordano, and Mr. Jerry Mize serve as faculty advisors.

For the past twelve years the MSU student chapter of ATMAE has traveled to the national convention to compete against other colleges and universities in various competitions.

Our chapter has fared well in the Haig Vahradian Technology Challenge. Garland Green in 2004, Thomas Cooper in 2010, and Derek Denney in 2012 of MSU won first place in the competition. Each of the other nine years the students from MSU have finished in no less than fourth place.

Since 2008, the MSU student chapter of ATMAE has entered in the ATMAE Annual Robotic Manipulator Contest. MSU brought home first place in 2008 and 2009 (see photos above), and is currently the only school to have won the competition more than once.

Beginning in 2010, a new component was added to the robotics competition. A “technical report” showing and explaining all the components of the robot was to be supplied. MSU has won first place in this category in both 2010 and 2012.

MSU Industrial Technology students are the designers and builders of the largest ringing cowbell in North America. The cowbell (photo on left) is taken to The Junction for home football games for all the fans to enjoy. It has also made many parade appearances.
