About the Olson Center
The John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center (The Olson Center) is focused on advanced manufacturing technologies and a cross-curricular approach to engineering and manufacturing concepts.
The center is designed to help bridge the skills gap in the nation’s $1.7 trillion manufacturing industry, and serve as a home for academically derived technology incubators, with particular focus on high precision machining, light materials, flexible electronics and ‘Industry 4.0’.
The Olson Center introduces students to innovative manufacturing technologies and allows visualization of manufacturing concepts to complement the skills learned in traditional classroom settings. It will serve as a pipeline for trained, skilled workers who will be able to successfully step into the state’s manufacturing sector with practical knowledge and experience.
The John Olson Advanced Manufacturing Center is the result of a gift from Whelen Engineering in honor of its longtime president, the late John Olson.
