BGSU mechatronics engineering technology student lands job with RōBEX after internship

Ian Kennedy gives robot demonstration to Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine

Ian Kennedy was on “pins and needles” when he gave a robotics demonstration to Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine recently in the Stephen and Deborah Harris/RIXAN Robotics Laboratory at Bowling Green State University.

Kennedy, a senior majoring in mechatronics engineering technology in the College of Technology, Architecture and Applied Engineering, was chosen for the exhibit to show the governor his senior project and because of his extensive experience working with robots.

“My goal is to become a robotics engineer and master-certified in FANUC,” he said. “I thought I was well suited and well prepared, but it definitely was still nerve wracking. He asked how my classes here at Bowling Green and my work in the lab have been able to help me progress out in the field or on the job site.

Kennedy was offered a job at RōBEX at the end of his internship, and is working part-time during his final semester at BGSU. He will start working full-time after he graduates.
