ME 577 Lab

Distance Education

These distance education graduate engineering students were on campus recently for an intense, condensed three-week version of ME 577, the Automatic Controls lab taught by Professor Robert Lorenz and TA Michael Harke. Other classes in the MS and PhD Outreach program are taught through videotape and e-mail communication with professors. Harke, at left above, is explaining equipment to Eric Schlevensky, who works for MagneTek in Milwaukee; Janis Blazei of General Motors in Shreveport, LA; Abdul Sudam of Hutchinson Technology in Hutchinson, MN; James Buerosse of Hamilton-Sundstrand Aerospace in Rockford, IL; and Clarissa Thomas of Hewlett-Packard in Corvallis, OR.
